DDoS Mitigation 2.0 Service
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks represent one of the most critical threats to businesses today. These attacks, which are increasingly more targeted at specific businesses, can cause downtime, drive up bandwidth costs, result in the loss of clients and can eventually lead to severe financial losses.
Savvis’ DDoS Mitigation 2.0 service minimizes the impact of distributed denial of service attacks by providing protection far above your infrastructure, at the core-router level and re-routing potential DDoS attack traffic to one or more “cleansing centers.” By addressing attacks quickly, you can reduce downtime and the added cost of bandwidth-spikes commonly associated with DDoS attacks. Because the DDoS Mitigation 2.0 service makes use of network-based infrastructure, there is no hardware or software required within your environment, thereby reducing your overall dedicated infrastructure costs.
DDoS Protection for Savvis’ Network or Other Providers
The DDoS Mitigation 2.0 service can detect attack traffic on Savvis’ network before it impacts your infrastructure. Traffic is analyzed by our 24x7 team of security analysts who determine whether your traffic should be diverted to one of our globally dispersed cleansing centers for “scrubbing.” Once traffic has diverted and has been cleansed of malicious packets, it is then forwarded to your site. Non-Savvis network traffic can also be cleansed of malicious packets with the DDoS Mitigation 2.0 service and forwarded to your site by using one of several diversion-and-return options that best suit your individual network design.
*Service availability, and certain features and options, may vary by region.
Pay for What You Use
Many DDoS mitigation service provides will charge you a large monthly fee – even if you are never attacked. With the DDoS Mitigation 2.0 Service, you pay a low monthly “retainer fee,” plus an hourly charge for traffic cleansing. Priced like an insurance policy, the DDoS Mitigation 2.0 service is priced to meet the requirements of enterprises who need the peace-of-mind of knowing that a high-capacity DDoS mitigation service is protecting them, but who don’t want to pay a large monthly premium for attack mitigation they may rarely need.
World Class Security
Our world-class security operations center (SOC) is staffed by skilled analysts who not only monitor Savvis’ network for attack traffic, but also work with you round-the-clock during an attack to help ensure that available countermeasures are deployed and in use to keep your site protected. If you believe that an attack on your site is imminent, you may also contact the Savvis SOC and request that your traffic be scrubbed as precautionary measure.
