What attacks does your DDoS solution protect from?
Posted by Support, Last modified by Support on 30 May 2014 12:19 PM

Our DDoS protection protects from Layer 3, 4 and layer 7 attacks and is an actual DDoS Protection mitigation solution designed to protect you from DDoS attacks. It is not a firewall or IDS device, its a global cloud DDoS mitigation network using BGP Anycast and mulitple global mitigation data centers. Most other solutions only protect you from layer 3 and layer 4 attacks, and if they protect you from layer 7, they usually charge for it or only provide basic limited layer 7 protection for free. Here is a list of some of the many attacks we protect you from.
