DDoS Protection now provided as Standard with all Servers
UK Servers are pleased to announce that with immediate effect all customers with dedicated, co-location and IP transit services will have their services protected by our in house DDoS filtering and scrubbing centre with upto 100Gb/s DDoS protection included to all customers at no additional charge.
Our monitoring and detection system uses complex algorithms to analyse traffic and route it through our filtering devices in the event of a large service affecting DDoS attack.
We have invested heavily in Riorey’s RG series protection devices which are known within the industry to be the most powerful DDoS Protection engine in the world filtering upto 72 million packets per second.
Over the last six months we have been integrating these devices within our UK network and are now able to offer all customers the protection from large denial of service attacks without having to route any traffic through third party DDoS protection.
Ben Yarwood, Network Engineer at UK Servers said:
“Over the last 12 months we have seen an increasing rise in the size and number of attacks against customers services, our new in house automated detection and filtering system means we can now filter DDoS traffic in house resulting in no increase in latency during attacks. We recently filtered an attack of 70Gb/s against a large retail site and the customers technical team they were completely unaware they were even under attack!”
With our new protection system customers can opt to have traffic permanently routed through our DDoS scrubbing centre allowing for “inline” protection if required, detailed attack statistics including the type of attack, country of origin(s) and scale are available as well as the option to customise the level of protection.
David Howes, Technical Director at UK Servers comments:
“We have been investing heavily in our core network over recent months and now have over 700Gb/s of external connectivity via peering and transit providers making our network one of the largest of any UK Dedicated Server provider. The benefit of this increase is the additional capacity leaves us best place to handle any large scale DDoS attacks. Downtime from a DDoS attack is incredibly damaging for the countless organisations that depend on being up and running 24/7/365.”
