sitecentre helps you keep your website safe with advanced DDoS Smartwall Protection to improve your websites security. Keeping you safe from malicious attacks on your server, network, or service.
What Is DDoS?
DDoS stands for distributed denial of service. It Is a cyberattack on a system that creates attack traffic with multiple computer systems. This can be an attack on a website, server, or network. Essentially flooding the target with traffic causing it to crash deeming your site to be unusable.
The traffic could be connection requests or messages, but it can reach you in other forms as well. A DDoS attack is often used as a threat to get your company, often for money, but done by competitors to cause outages in peek times.
While there have been some high profile attacks such as those done to governments, social media platforms and data-aggregators, this is done on smaller websites often. That means that no matter how large or small your business is, you’re at risk of a DDoS attack.
Internet network connections contain layers using Open Systems Connection. DDoS attacks will choose a particular layer to focus on.
- Layer 3 is the network layer. This attracts ICMP floods, IP fragmentation, and smurf attacks.
- Layer 4 is the transport layer. This attracts TCP connection exhaustion, SYN floods, and UDP floods.
- Layer 7 is the application layer. This attracts HTTP-encrypted attacks.
