Guaranteed security against DDoS attacks

Protect your website against DDoS attacks

The goal of any DDoS attack is to take the website or infrastructure out of operation. E-commerce, banks, government services, and mass media are among the most attacked organizations. Hackers can send a bevy of requests to target server from different places. As a result, the server can finally yield and fail, making the website unavailable for clients.

It is very difficult to repel DDoS attacks on your own. We recommend using DDoS-GUARD module for ISPmanager. It can protect against 99,5% of all attacks, so you don’t have to bother about potential criminals, unfair competitors, or lost money.

Who can be affected

DDoS-GUARD release global DDoS statistics every quarter. The most attacked countries are China, USA and Russia. They accumulate around 88% of all attacks. China is the traditional #1 in this ranking, as it hosts a lot of cheap dedicated servers for projects around the world.

Areas that are normally attacked are e-commerce, game projects, and hosting providers.

Why it is important to protect your website

All online operations are crucial for any company. Clients, partners, and even employees need stable access to products and services, therefore, it is very important to avoid outages caused by DDoS attacks. Such outages may result in serious problems for any business.

First, if customers were trying to make payments or enter the website during the attack, the company would lose money. Oftentimes, hackers claim money to stop the DDoS attack. Second, any attack brings reputation losses. Clients will definitely be unhappy to see your website down. Further public disclosures in the Internet might deter potential customers who might fancy that attacks will result in leaked personal data and credit card numbers. Furthermore, such attacks might influence operation of other systems, e.g. attack on internal bank systems might also put its ATMs out of service.

Complexity and power of DDoS attacks go up every year. It means that it becomes more and more difficult to protect and recover from them. This is why it is so important to use the services that are capable to identify the attack and clean up the consequences.
