4D’s DDoS protection 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 connection with us and ensures that you only receive clean attack-free traffic.
In 2010 the biggest attacks recorded were around 100 Gbps (Gigabits per second). Today they have grown, with the most powerful attacks reaching over 1 Tbps. The average cost to a UK business that suffers downtime as a result of a DDoS attack is over £140,000 and DDoS attacks are expected to cost UK businesses £1 billion in 2019.
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.
Take a look at our recent Cybersecurity webinar where we covered the structure, types of DDoS attacks, and how they can affect your business.
Below are some of the most common types of DDoS attacks which we most regularly protect our customers from.
A HTTP flood attack generates a huge amount of HTTP, GET, and POST requests from many different sources. The replies to these requests are all sent to the victims server, overloading it and preventing genuine traffic from connecting.
An attacker will disrupt the DNS servers of your network, meaning your site or application will be unreachable by anyone trying to connect to it.
This is a layer 7 attack where the attacker uses the UDP protocol to request lots of information from lots of different sources, the replies are all sent to the victim's server, overloading it and making it unavailable to authentic traffic.
With 4D Protect DDoS, your infrastructure is defended. Our DDoS mitigation platform will clean attack traffic against your servers and applications, helping to safeguard your data, and protect your network from volumetric attacks over 1 Tbps in size.
When 4D Protect is live it provides comprehensive real-time DDoS monitoring and protection against volumetric network as well as application layer attacks with protection for Layers-2, 3, 4 and 7.
We also offer Emergency DDoS Mitigation, a Cyber Threat Analysis Audit and DDoS trials.
