What is Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) Protection?

Strong defences, easily deployed & cost effective

Cyber-attacks are a regular and growing challenge to organisations large and small. GCI are experts in cost-effective and easily deployed solutions that provide “always on” protection that mitigates this major organisational threat.

Denial of Service methods range from “Low and Slow” methods designed to deplete resource over time, up to Volumetric type attacks which are massively bandwidth saturating and can bring all but the very largest network to its knees within seconds. Attacks are far more common than is reported in the mainstream press and by their nature are difficult to remediate using traditional methods. We believe that the main defence against bandwidth attacks needs to be applied upstream using a combination of traffic analysis and intelligence shared between providers.
