Confidentiality, data protection, and resource availability are a few of a project’s biggest priorities and are essential for its services to continue operating uninterrupted. In its basic package, HOSTKEY provides all of its customers DDoS server attack protection by default free of charge in every data center in which it exists.
For projects threatened by unconventional attacks, HOSTKEY offers advanced protection. Protection against DDoS attacks is provided for all dedicated servers and VPS. Advanced protection uses algorithms that filter incoming traffic round the clock as well as ensuring protection both from unconventional and common types of attacks in addition to attacks targeting network protocol vulnerabilities, which are more difficult to fend off.
All HOSTKEY servers in the Netherlands and the USA are under ongoing basic protection against DDoS attacks. This service fends off conventional “brute force” attacks designed to overcome the server port’s traffic capacity. This basic protection is provided to all customers by default at no cost to them.
Within the bounds of the basic monitoring protection system, the server port’s incoming traffic is constantly analyzed. In the event that the volume of its threshold values is exceeded, advanced protection is activated and the traffic is cleaned using the latest, effective algorithms.
The basic protection algorithms are sufficient for most projects. Nevertheless, a short-term decline in the services may occur during the process of the switch.
Advanced DDoS attack protection is required for projects for which the uninterrupted provision of its services is crucial. In order to ensure that outcome, the client’s infrastructure is connected to advanced protection algorithms on an ongoing basis.
The algorithms use machine learning to filter out «brute force», high-load attacks from large, distributed botnets as well as more clever, unconventional attacks which take advantage of network protocol vulnerabilities. Take for example the small (about 20 Mbps) syn flood/udp-flood.
When advanced algorithms are used, there is no possibility of even a short-term decline in service quality while the IP addresses are being changed during the switch.
