DDoS Protection

Keeping measures in place to help businesses

You need to be online 24/7, regardless of whether your server is under attack. DDoS attacks increased by 53% in the first quarter of 2018, in comparison to the last quarter of 2017. Of those businesses who were DDoS attacked, over 65% were attacked again. To ensure the safety of your online assets UKFast has developed DDoSX.

DDoSX investigates attacks and generates a unique fingerprint for each attack, identifying and redirecting this traffic away from your webserver, keeping your business online and functional.

What is DDoSX®?

DDoS attacks continuously flood your server and firewall with thousands of fake requests until the volume of requests causes the server to fail, and your site to go offline. It is vital that your organisation has measures in place to mitigate the impact on your business' continuity.

DDoSX detects and prevents even the most sophisticated of DDoS attacks, filtering out bad traffic so that your server only receives genuine traffic and your business operates as usual – even in the event of an attack.

UKFast has invested in a global infrastructure to offer our clients the very best in DDoS protection, Content Delivery Network and Web Application Firewall services for their websites. We have built a global network which can scale over time to further develop the protection we can offer.

Our global infrastructure blocks attacks closer to the source to prevent the traffic from ever hitting our core network in the UK. Instead, if malicious traffic is detected, it is discarded from our infrastructure without being passed on to yours.

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

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

The nature of our business and the industry we're in makes us a very easy target for attacks. 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.
