Node4, the Cloud, Data Centre and communications specialist, has launched a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defence, providing customers with a critical combination of volumetric and application layer security within the same service, for maximum protection against DDoS.
Forming a core part of Node4’s N4Protect security service, the multi-layer N4Protect DDoS service offers dual protection, ensuring malicious application layer exploits cannot be hidden or overlooked because of an over-riding DDoS flood attack. Proactive monitoring gives 24/7/365 protection, and sees customers receive immediate reports of any threats the DDoS solution has intercepted or resolved.
Node4 has invested significantly in bringing the new N4Protect DDoS technology to its MPLS core network infrastructure, eliminating the need for customers to incur large capex. Instead, Node4 customers can integrate exceptional levels of DDoS protection alongside Node4’s Cloud and Colocation services for an affordable monthly charge.
Andrew Gilbert, CEO at Node4, comments: “By the time your business has been hit by a DDoS attack it’s typically too late to act, as recent high profile attacks have shown. Many companies believe they are adequately protected with approaches such as firewalls, disaster recovery plans and server duplication, but these offer no protection against DDoS attacks, which use legitimate and valid requests to subvert network security.
“Node4 is committed to delivering the very best Cloud and Connectivity services to our customers and doing this in a secure environment is of paramount importance. With the launch of N4Protect DDoS we have made a significant investment in helping our customers to achieve the high levels of protection they need, within a flexible, highly resilient network infrastructure.”
N4Protect DDoS forms part of Node4’s N4Protect offering, providing businesses with a comprehensive, multi-layered security approach. Secured by Node4’s industry leading security services, N4Protect can be configured to meet the needs of the enterprise as well as the SMB. Businesses have control to configure their own fully featured firewall, including high-availability, site-to-site VPNs, content filtering, anti-virus, intrusion detection and data loss prevention.
