DDoS Protection

Anti-DDoS

Our servers are supported by the anti-DDoS infrastructure in order to protect your server 24/7 against any type of DDoS attack, regardless of duration or size. A DDoS attack aims to render a server, service or an infrastructure unavailable by sending a multitude of simultaneous requests from multiple points across the internet. The intensity of this "crossfire" renders the service unstable, or even worse, unavailable.

Managing DDoS attacks: Each step

1) The server is operational - no attack

  • Internet-based services are used without any problem. The traffic passes through the backbone of our network then arrives at the datacentre. Finally it is handled by the server that sends back the responses over the internet.
  • 2) The DDoS attack begins

  • the attack is launched via the internet and on the backbone. Given the surplus capacity of the bandwidth on the backbone, the attack will not cause saturation on any link. The attack reaches the server, which begins to handle the initial attack. At the same time, analysis of the traffic flags up that an attack is underway and thus triggers the mitigation.
  • 3) Mitigation of the attack

  • Between 15 and 120 seconds after the attack has started, the mitigation is activated. The traffic coming in towards the server is vacuumed up by the 3 VACs, with a total mitigation capacity of 480 Gbps (3 x 160 Gbps), hosted in 3 our datacentres. The attack is blocked without duration or size limits, nor any other type of limit. Legitimate traffic passes through the VAC to finally reach the server. The server responds directly without passing through the VAC again. This process is called auto-mitigation.
  • 4) End of the attack

  • Generating an attack is costly, and even more so when it is ineffective. After a certain time has passed, the attack will come to an end. Auto-mitigation is maintained for 26 hrs after the attack has ended. This means any new attack that occurs within a few minutes, a few hours or 24 hours will be blocked. After just 26 hours, auto-mitigation is disabled, but it remains ready to be reactivated on detection of a new attack.
  • Anti-DDoS

    All Servers will benefit from automatic anti-DDoS mitigation by default in the event of an attack (reactive mitigation).
