What is a DDoS attack?
Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks are electronic attacks that burden a system, service or network to such an extent they are no longer available. An attack is achieved by either disabling the systems or by saturating a network with data traffic, making the systems unavailable for legitimate data traffic.
A DoS attack can originate from a single system or simultaneously from a group of systems. When the attack originates from multiple systems, it is referred to as a Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack.
The amount of free information, DDoS tools, and services available on the Internet make it relatively easy to completely shut down your company’s online services.
What does a DDoS attack cost you?
The cost of a DDoS attack comprises two main factors: the operational costs and the revenue loss or impact. A short attack may only affect your operational costs from the time spent fixing the issue plus increased helpdesk support. A large attack will also result in lost business. Ultimately, both will severely affect your reputation. Experience tells us that a DDoS attack usually persists for several days, and could seriously damage your company.
What guarantees does Jitscale’s DDoS Protection Service offer?
Our protection service guarantees your company a constantly learning and adapting protection mechanism during an attack. Almost all DDoS attacks are polymorphic, which means they constantly change in order to bypass the used filters. Our protection service is adjustable to virtually all changing situations. Foreign traffic can also be blocked in order to avert an attack.
Your company will have the guarantee of a protection network that is constantly monitored and managed by skilled and certified engineers, using equipment supported to optimise filter algorithms.
