Protect your IT against increasing attacks

Safeguard your cloud infrastructure

The number of malicious and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have dramatically increased over the last few years — raising the chances that your IT infrastructure may one day be compromised.

Just in the first half of 2020 alone, there were over 4.8 million DDoS attacks around the world.

As a result, IT administrators have to ensure resilience and availability, even as attacks become increasingly complex. The DDoS Protect Advanced solution from IONOS helps combat malicious activity.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

One common way of getting anti-DDoS protection is to use a DDoS protection service or DDoS protector like DDoS Protect. A DDoS protector filters malicious data streams to prevent your IT infrastructure from being overloaded by denial of service attacks.

Read our guide to learn more about DDoS and DoS attack patterns and countermeasures.

DDoS attacks fall into three categories:

  • Bandwidth overload
  • System resource overload
  • Exploitation of software bugs and security vulnerabilities

Using a DDoS protector can protect your infrastructure from any of these attack types. You can learn more about DDoS in our guide.
