Full-network Protection

Secure Network

True security starts at square one. Our innovative network infrastructure has security measures that cover the entire platform, thwarting malicious activity before it ever reaches our further hardened services. Including an unprecedented approach to DDoS mitigation.

Built-in Defenses

Secure Services

Each StackPath service is hardened with protective features tailored to its specific operations, possible vulnerabilities, and unique advantages. That way you avoid the performance compromises from applying security measures not every service requires.

Security-first Design

Secure Focus

The first requirement for any service or feature we develop is that it must provide customers a higher level of security—without sacrificing performance—than any other platform. So that you can focus on what you’re building, not on how you’ll protect it.

DDoS Protection

DDoS attacks, meet a new kind of denial.

Our infrastructure uses one-of-a-kind server-level DDoS mitigation technologies and best practice network architecture design to block and mitigate DDoS attacks like no other platform.

  • Strategic sinkholes
    Strategically-placed sink holes positioned to mitigate stubborn attacks.
  • All layers included
    Server-level DDoS technologies protect layers 3 through 5 from SYN floods and UDP floods. When activated, our Web Application Firewall provides layer-7 protection.
  • Geographically distributed protection
    DDoS mitigation technologies in every PoP so speed isn’t compromised.

Network Security

We call it a network. You'll call it a security guard.

Hackers innovate. So our whole network is designed to defend against new threats as they emerge, as well as already known threats, and extends those advantages to each service we offer.

  • Network-level encryption
    Encrypted utilizing both IPSec and TLS.
  • Network scanning
    Regular ping sweeps and port and vulnerability scans for the detection of unauthorized usage of protocols, ports, and services, on all elements of our platform.
  • Malware Defense
    Extensive configuration management options address the need for authentication, data gathering, and remediation.
