Managed DDoS Protection

Monitor, detect & mitigate malicious traffic

DDoS attacks are becoming more common.
Any business with the internet is a target.

SDN’s Managed DDoS Protection service monitors, reports and offers optional mitigation for Distributed Denial of Service attacks that can disrupt critical business services such as the internet, email and websites.

How does a DDoS attack work?

To carry out an attack, hackers recruit virus-infected computers to act like zombies. They then maliciously distribute robotic armies, or botnets, to attack your network’s digital resources such as computers and servers. When your assets are overwhelmed, the attack cuts off legitimate users, denying them access to your business and its services.

How to stop the attacks?

SDN offers multiple levels of protection as an additional service to our internet subscribers. In each package, our Managed DDoS Protection identifies the malicious traffic and has the ability to stop the bots through mitigation or deploying countermeasures on your internet pipe. Customers can receive alerts, 24x7 support and scheduled reports depending on the level of service.
