Case Study: DDoS Protection.
Minimise your business risk with premium mitigation capacity: 700gbit directly connected to 1500+ networks globally.
If you’re a physical business owner, managing a surplus of customers is typically a positive problem. There’s always a tipping point though. If the excess overwhelms your service infrastructure, things can get messy, fast; wait times balloon out, your brand reputation can be irreconcilably tainted, assets can be damaged or mishandled – it can be a damaging downward spiral of events.
If you manage a network or large-scale corporate website, the issues and risks are exactly the same, albeit on a much more significant scale. The phenomenon is known as a Dedicated Denial of Service attack (DDoS), and without reinforced premium grade DDoS protection, the consequences can cripple your organisation – from network unavailability and website downtime to privacy breaches and harvesting of sensitive information.
As a leading Anti DDoS provider, our services are purpose designed to detect, analyse and mitigate DDoS attacks of all types and sizes.
That’s why prominent organisations such as iiNet, Melbourne IT (MIT), Network Dynamics and Amaze Communications rely on Micron21 for comprehensive and elite DDoS protection.
What does that mean for business?
Christopher Taylor, Operations Centre Manager, iiNet.
"Our Operations Centre needs to be on the cutting edge to make sure we protect our services and provide our customers with an awesome experience. When iiNet was the target of denial of service attacks in late 2015, we reached out to Micron21 to be part of our upgraded security framework. Micron21s DDoS protection service continues to serve as an important component in our operation; giving us the confidence our network is robust enough to filter out undesirable traffic to our corporate website and customer-facing applications."
Premium grade protection.
A Distributed Denial of Service attack is an attempt to overwhelm online services, making them unavailable and destabilizing network infrastructure. A DDoS attack occurs when the system is overwhelmed by traffic from multiple sources. Attacks are often deliberately premeditated and strategic – designed to gain access to important information by compromising security.
Micron21 DDoS protection provides multiple layers of physical hardware to inspect, scan and filter traffic at the packet layer. There are four protective barricades to our DDoS protection.
- Brocade Edge Routers are designed to identify and sustain legitimate traffic.
- NS Focus DDoS Mitigation inspects the metadata of packets for known attack patterns against a zero day database.
- The NS Focus Mitigation simultaneously instructs A10 load balancers to drop illegitimate traffic.
- As a final measure of security, Juniper Firewalls provide a layer of defence at the client end.
Our five global scrubbing centres are located in Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore, Amsterdam and Los Angeles – ensuring the integrity of mission-critical applications. Our Global Multiprotocol Label Switching network (MPLS) allows for optimal routing of clean traffic across regions.
The result is truly comprehensive protection at the enterprise level of network security.
