Protecting your business from DDoS attacks can be a stressful time for organizations. Quite simply, distributed denial of service is one of the most disruptive ordeals for companies doing business online. The cost of DDoS protection can be quite steep, but one positive aspect of professional mitigation is that you do not have to install any special hardware or software on your systems.
In fact, choosing the right provider eliminates the hassle and stress of dealing with DDoS attacks. Your provider handles protection from DDoS attacks, you focus on your business.
Protection from DDoS Attacks Requires Only One Simple Change
The time for deployment can be as little as 15 minutes! Strong remote DDoS protection can literally happen in minutes and all it requires is a simple change to your DNS. This works regardless of what type of server you use, or where you are located. Once the service is activated, it is “always on”. It will proactively monitor for malicious DDoS traffic and begin mitigating any attacks on the onset.
How it works
First, all you need to do is request a clean IP address from your ISP or hosting provider. Once it’s installed on your server, you would notify your DDoS protection provider and they will issue one of their IP addresses. Afterwards, your domain is pointed to the mitigation company’s IP and all traffic to your website is routed through “scrubbing” centers that block DDoS traffic from reaching your site, while at the same time allowing access to human visitors.
Your server becomes hidden entirely and only communicates with the DDoS mitigation company, absolutely no one else. This prevents attackers from finding your IP and continuing the attack, giving you absolute protection from all types of DDoS attacks.
If your site requires HTTPS /SSL your DDoS mitigation provider will handle uploading your certificate to the customer access area, so your site operates as usual.
