You only have to look at http://www.digitalattackmap.com to see the high volume of attacks which are happening around the world. See below for a recent snapshot showing you the top DDOS attacks worldwide.
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from banks to news websites, and present a major challenge to making sure people can publish and access important information.
Cyber-criminals are always working to find and exploit any vulnerability so.... you need a dedicated Internet Security Service that's always working for you. Security specialists working around the clock so that if there’s a breach, they can stop hackers in their tracks. That's where we can help with Colt IP Guardian.
Colt IP Guardian resides on the network & can help you reduce the impact of Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. It is deployed at strategic locations throughout Colt's global network to ensure near continuous uptime of the IP Guardian service. Available for circuits which have a bandwidth of at least 10Mbps, it is true DDoS Protection. The only way to properly protect a network from a DDoS attack is to fight it as close as possible to the source before it floods your Internet connection, and the only way this can be done is to fight it before it even reaches you and your firewall. Some firewalls offer DDoS protection; however, this simply protects the internal network and not the Internet Access circuit, which may already have been flooded by the DDoS attack.
The technology deployed allows you to continue using your Internet service whilst under attack, thus minimising the effects such as lost revenues due to down time.
