Don't let attacks shut down your network
A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack is when multiple computer systems attack an organizations resources and cause a denial of service for users. Denial of service is typically accomplished by flooding the targeted user’s network with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being fulfilled. Segra’s DDoS Protection prevents these crippling attacks before they hit your network in real-time, to prevent disruptions. Many times, these cyber criminals demand a ransom to restore service.

DDoS - Volumetric Attacks
A volumetric attacks goal is to flood a target with as much traffic as possible to prevent it from operating normally. To be successful, the volumetric DDoS attack only needs to take up enough of the targets Internet connection capacity to affect legitimate operations; a successful attack will be able to affect most or all of the target's clients. Some examples of a volumetric attack are Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP)/User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packet floods, Spoofed packet floods and malformed packet floods.
With these DDoS styles of attacks continuing to get easier and with the amount of residential bandwidth continuing to grow at a fast rate, botnets will continue to become more powerful. Companies that do business on the Internet need to take these types of attacks seriously. More organizations need to have a DDoS solution as they continue to build out their networks and security systems. When using a DDoS protection service, all or most of the traffic going to and from a target network is routed through the protection services networking equipment. This service "scrubs" all of the potential threat DDoS traffic and forwards all valid traffic to the target's network.
Facts about Volumetric DDoS Attacks
DDoS attacks are occurring at an alarming frequency. They are designed to inflict a complete outage, degrade service, or make way for more threats. Malicious traffic carrying DDoS threats flow over service providers networks. Even more worrying is that most customers end up paying their providers for the bandwidth that delivers potentially dangerous Internet content.
