How can you protect your company if your IT systems are under attack? Over the last year, several companies have experienced severe DDoS attacks attempting to strike and damage core businesses. The attacks can result in full stop of daily business; which would lead to dramatic consequences for the companies affected. Many of these attacks could have been avoided by applying IPnett services using Arbor Networks technology.

What are DDoS attacks?
DDoS stands for Denial-of-Service and constitutes an attack to prevent normal traffic in a computer system or on a server. If the attack is coordinated from many computers simultaneously, it’s called a DDoS – Distributed Denial-of-Service. In layman’s terms we might call this an overload attempt or access denial attack.
Arbor Networks’ solution effectively prevents DDoS attacks using their Peakflow SP and TMS which is placed at the service provider end. Peakflow TMS continuously monitors and filters out unwanted traffic in the network. To prevent application attacks, Pravail APS is placed at the end user-side of the network. Through so-called cloud signaling, Pravail is able to report back to the service provider’s Peakflow if an attack is under way.
