DDoSX™

What is DDoSX™?

DDoS attacks are becoming increasingly common. They work by flooding your server and firewall with hundreds of thousands of fake requests and this continues to the point where the server fails to cope with the sheer volume of requests, leading to downtime.
 
DDoSX™ detects and prevents even the most sophisticated of DDoS attacks. Filtering out bad traffic so that your server only receives genuine traffic, meaning it's business as usual even in the event of an attack.

How does DDoSX™ work?

UKFast have invested in a global infrastructure to offer our clients the very best in DDoS protection for their websites. We have built a global network which can scale over time to further develop the protection we can offer.

With this global infrastructure the attacks are blocked closer to the source meaning the traffic never hits our core network here in the UK.

UKFast's DDoSX™ is placed at the mitigation layer in front of your firewall and identifies an attack before it even reaches your solution. It analyses the traffic that your server receives and identifies components that do not make up a typical request.

This suspect traffic is intelligently filtered out and redirected to a decoy and the anomalies believe that they've reached and overwhelmed their target, avoiding degradation of your website services.

Off-routing traffic keeps your website online and accessible to your genuine customers.

Our online security specialists also analyse historical reports to determine attack patterns and adapt our algorithms to ensure that we can defeat even the latest sophisticated attacks. So, whether you're a victim of a syn flood attack or malformed HTTP requests, there's no need to worry.

Secure Hosting from UKFast

"The nature of our business and the industry we're in makes us a very easy target for attacks. Our websites were running behind a dedicated firewall, but that couldn't stop the DDoS attack. UKFast were quick to step in and help; a DDoS mitigator was installed and since then we've never even been threatened with an attack, and have always remained online."
