L3-L4 DDoS Protection is Now Available on SP// Edge Compute Workloads
The increasing digitization of business tasks and assets is driving employers and users to seek more secure software and services. This digitization makes DDoS attacks a favorite vector for cybercriminals with its ability to render services unreachable and open doors for additional threats. There are many ways to protect and mitigate DDoS attacks, but adding another security vendor to your expanding technology footprint can inflate operational and execution complexities.
StackPath already combines edge compute, edge delivery, and edge security for performance advantages on a resilient architecture so your employees and customers can utilize fast, secure, and seamless experiences.
We have expanded our existing DDoS mitigation services found on the SP// CDN and SP// WAF products by introducing L3-L4 DDoS Protection for StackPath Edge Compute workloads. An SP// Virtual Machine or SP// Container workload can be launched with L3-L4 DDoS Protection in a matter of moments to reduce the complexity of your cloud while maintaining uptime, all with a simple press of a button, not another vendor.
StackPath L3-L4 DDoS Protection is integrated into our edge locations for network-based DDoS defense that detects and mitigates attacks where the compute resource is located and where the attack is seen. This means your edge compute workloads are protected without any additional latency. Legacy solutions rely on backhauling traffic to an expensive scrubbing center to scrub clean vs. malicious traffic, which introduces latency and bandwidth costs. The prohibitive costs and latency impacts of external scrubbing centers force enterprises to implement on-demand DDoS protection, where protection is turned on only after an attack is observed.
StackPath L3-L4 DDoS Protection is built on a modern automated architecture that is designed to scale and keeps performance high. DDoS attacks are automatically detected, providing mitigation within seconds and with 99% effectiveness, thanks to an always-on approach that provides inline scrubbing. This degree of efficacy and speed is possible by incorporating a big data analytics engine that can rapidly analyze high-velocity security metadata and adapt to new threats.
DDoS attacks can impact your bottom line in many ways. For example, inaccessible resources affect employees and customers causing reputation loss due to degraded performance. DDoS attacks also increase compute and egress costs associated with the handling of malicious requests. StackPath’s always-on DDoS Protection keeps resource uptime high and protects against runaway billing associated with the processing of malicious requests. With scrubbing happening in line with edge compute traffic, you can avoid costs associated with the offsite scrubbing centers of legacy solutions.
Getting started is easy by creating an account or contacting Sales today to discuss your specific needs. StackPath also has you covered if you need any assistance from implementation to event response, and you can rely upon our SP// Support Plans as a natural addition to your IT team. We look forward to reducing the complexity of your cloud and protecting your next competitive advantage.
