Introducing DDoS Protection from 4D

As DDoS attacks continue to increase, in size, frequency and sophistication - largely as they are so easy to launch - it’s clear that organisations can no longer think it won’t happen to them.   With a third of UK companies reporting a cybersecurity breach or attack in the last 12 months, cyber-attacks are becoming a way of life.

Difficult to defend against and potentially costly, DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks can result in website and network outages, compromised data, and lost revenue and reputation for organisations both large and small.

4D Protect’s DDoS solutions safeguard your network and data against denial of service attacks up to layer-7 and over 1 Tbps in size.  Our flat monthly fee model has no additional bandwidth charges or usage costs, 4D Protect simply sits in front of your existing internet connectivity with 4D and ensures that you only receive clean attack-free traffic.

What is DDoS?

DDoS attacks have been a part of internet life for at least the last 20 years. A DDoS attack is an attempt to render a server or entire network unreachable. During a DDoS attack your website, applications and data may become unreachable while the server is flooded with malicious traffic blocking your users and customers.

Attacks have been increasing in size and frequency on an almost annual basis - in 2010, the largest DDoS attack were up to 100 Gbps (Gigabits per second), by 2014 this had quadrupled to 400 Gbps. Today we hear about the very largest attacks reaching over 1 Tbps and more than 100 million packets per second.*

The average cost to UK business that suffer downtime as a result of a DDoS attack is over £140,000 and DDoS attacks are expected to cost UK business £1 billion in 2019.

Take a look at our recent Cybersecurity webinar where we covered the structure, types of DDoS attacks, and how they can affect your business.
