Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have continued to grow year-on-year. An attempt to saturate bandwidth or resources, a DDoS attack works by denying you the ability to make use of key internet-facing services, such as your website. Even large corporations like the Boston Globe and the UK National Lottery have previously been affected, and while slowing down or crashing these services might have a financial impact on your business, there’s also a hidden cost - damage to your reputation and loss of customer confidence.
In partnership with Level 3 Communications, GCI will monitor and protect your business through the implementation of DDoS mitigation services, ensuring that your business is protected from potentially crippling DDoS attacks. In the event of an attack, we’ll make sure traffic is identified and cleaned before it’s routed to your site, taking advantage of the significant capacity available within the Level 3 infrastructure to absorb large scale attacks before they reach you, and the visibility they have of attacks around the world via their own 24/7 Security Operations Centre (SOC). Working with GCI, you can feel reassured that protection is in place to mitigate even the largest of incidents, safeguarding both your business revenues and reputation.
