Hey you, get off of my Cloud!
CDNetworks has thousands of servers located around the world to not only accelerate websites, but to also handle spikes in traffic. A subset of these servers functions specifically to absorb DDoS attack traffic. Once an attack has been detected with 24×7 monitoring by CDNetworks’ security professionals, the attack traffic is rerouted to the sponge servers. This all happens quickly to keep the website operational for legitimate traffic.
You can drastically reduce the effects of a DDoS attack by employing CDNs to offload the malicious traffic. And, you will always be prepared; no matter what time of the day or night someone decides to invade your cloud.
