Stop DDoS attacks before they stop you.
Distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) are on the rise in frequency, sophistication and cost. In 2014 alone, nearly 50 percent of enterprise IT leaders reported experiencing at least one DDoS attack.* And once a firm has been attacked, the chances are more than 90 percent they'll get hit again.
What's at risk? Just a single DDoS attack can wreak havoc on a company for months, deflating IT team productivity, driving customer down-time, reducing margins, and degrading brand reputation.

Give access to the right users and keep others out.
A DDoS attack occurs when a large number of compromised systems attack a target, such as a website, and overwhelm it with activity that causes the target to become unresponsive and thereby denies legitimate users with access to the system.
DDoS mitigation services minimize the impact of DDoS attacks on customer infrastructure by catching and re-routing potentially malicious attack traffic "above" your infrastructure, before it ever reaches you or impacts your customers' experience of your site. Re-routed data is analyzed and scrubbed to remove malicious packets before being forwarded onto your site.
