About DDoS
Published on: March 11, 2014 by Irina

Have you ever encountered an extremely slow network performance or experienced an excessive increase in the number of spam emails? Do you know firsthand what a long term denial of access is? In all of these cases, you were “introduced” to such a harmful tool of disablement of any web- resource connected to the Internet as a DDoS attack.

First, let’s take a look at what exactly a DDoS attack is and what its purpose is in such a highly competitive society. A distributed denial-of-service attack is a type of attack on a network designed to bring the network to a halt by bombarding it with useless traffic. Under such an attack, your web-resource cannot respond to legitimate users. Unavailability followed by downtime of a webpage will inevitably lead to a high financial loss by a company which might be very beneficial for a light-fingered rival. Unfortunately, such and economic consequence might only be the tip of the iceberg since the real complication could be your damaged reputation as a business owner.  Frequently, your clients’ personal information is the main target of hackers. Sometimes DDoS attacks act as a weapon in a political struggle. Ideological hackers often target government agencies and companies which have a clash of opinions.  As we see, a DDoS attack turns out to be an unaffordable luxury.

The good news is that AtomDrive is capable of providing shelter to web-resources of any scale. As a result of close cooperation with Solar Communications, AtomDrive is proud to present a technological solution for detection and immediate response to any type of DDoS attacks with a guaranteed effect of thorough traffic filtering.
