What are DDoS Attacks?
DDoS is a Distributed Denial of Service Attack. It uses sets of computers and personal devices from all over the world to coordinate sending access requests to a single website or Application. The intention is to overload the systems capabilities to respond to the requests. Sometimes, as a result of being overloaded, a server will suffer a hardware failure and shutdown completely.
If the attack came from a single computer (DoS Attack), you could easily identify the attack via the IP making the requests and block it from your system. However, because DDoS attacks use a set of computers and personal devices (sometimes hundreds) it is often harder to identify if this is a coordinated attack or just a coincidence.
DDoS Attack Mitigation for your Perth business
With this type of attack being successful in the past, the securities industry has investigated it thoroughly and have identified many different ways to both:
1) Identify when an attack is occurring and
2) Mitigate the effects of the attack so it is mostly harmless.
Most of the mitigation techniques we use for Perth businesses require real-time monitoring of your servers to determine how busy they are working. They specifically look for load spikes that could indicate the start of an attack.
Once a load spike has been detected the monitoring systems need to determine how best to respond. If the load spike is real traffic, like a booking system with a new release, then the system needs to have mechanisms to allow as much of this real traffic to progress as is possible without slowing down the servers performance significantly. However, if the load spike is an attack designed to overload the server, then the system needs to prevent the attacks from progressing. This needs to be done with minimal disruption to real traffic. Either way, the server should not fail.
Our vendors employ DDoS solutions as a preventative measure before they reach the infrastructure of your Perth business. The protection is fast, reliable and scalable. As part of our service, we report on any identified attacks so you are aware of security concerns before they become a problem for your Perth business.
