Businesses are constantly moving more and more services to the cloud, making them increasingly dependent on network availability. Unfortunately, millions of businesses have been compromised by Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which quickly overwhelm a network and take its services offline. The potential impact of such an outage will be immediate and severe as customers and other users will be locked out, potentially for a significant amount of time.
We offer the largest hosted DDoS protection service in the UK and our high-speed detection and forensic analysis software analyses all our network traffic for threats.
Here are some of the key benefits of Chimera Tech’s DDoS protection service:
Chimera Tech has deployed A10 Network’s Thunder TPS protection within the fabric of our network. A10 TPS provides high-performance, network-wide protection from DDoS attacks, maintaining service availability against a variety of protocol, resource, volumetric, and other sophisticated application attacks.
Our carrier-grade DDoS protection is designed to detect and alert us of suspicious activity, as well as mitigate its impact. All our customers with equipment and services that are deployed ‘on-net’ can benefit from 24/7/365 DDoS monitoring and analysis.
When any system starts behaving unusually, our network operations centre and A10 TPS platform receive an alert. The A10 TPS solution then limits the impact of DDoS attacks by automatically redirecting traffic.
This solution supports a set of features that validate, block, or rate-limit the traffic entering our network. Service availability is maintained regardless of the type of attack and DDoS traffic is routed through the A10 TPS platform and ‘scrubbed’ to eliminate the malicious traffic.
