Global traffic scrubbing backed by threat intelligence.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are happening more frequently - 53 percent of organizations report they're seeing more than 51 attacks per month - up from 44 percent last year. Organization in the Financial Services, Hosting/E-Commerce and Government sectors are top targets.
Regardless of Internet provider, mitigating today’s sophisticated DDoS attacks requires high-capacity, regionally distributed scrubbing centers combined with network controls to help reduce latency and maintain performance.
To detect and block traffic flood attacks aimed at crashing or reducing availability of servers, applications, websites, and networks, CenturyLink DDoS Mitigation
Service is a cloud-based system designed to absorb malicious traffic via a dozen globally distributed scrubbing centers during a DDoS attack and forward only legitimate traffic to the customer’s internet facing addresses.
Combining enhanced network routing, rate limiting and IP filtering, mitigation is performed in one of two modes:
The longer it takes to detect a cyberattack, the more harm it can cause. During a breach, attacks can conduct surveillance and steal data from your organization, increasing the cost and consequences.
CenturyLink protection extends beyond DDoS scrubbing to include controlling threats through network routing, filtering and rate limiting, providing relief from volumetric and application based attacks.
