    “Only solutions that can deliver swift and precise DDoS mitigation can help organizations achieve true operational resilience in the face of web-based threats. The quicker the mitigation is, the smaller is the business risk.”

    DDoS attacks affect everyone and can be carried out by anyone – with fatal consequences. Detailed background information on this very common type of cyber attack can be found here.

    If such an attack occurs, the precision of detection and speed of mitigation are crucial. Link11 sets new standards in this regard – confirmed by Frost & Sullivan’s new DDoS benchmark.

    Our protection solution, based on intelligent whitelisting, radical automation and our own global multi-terrabit network, comes with a triple guarantee – time-to-mitigate, network availability and dedicated protection bandwidth.


    We deliver what others promise

    When it comes to DDoS attacks, what counts is maximum precision in detection and maximum speed in mitigation. Effective protection ensures that, in the event of an emergency, revenue losses or reputational damage are excluded. This requires technology that delivers exactly what it promises. Around the clock, without exceptions.


    Essential criteria for effective DDoS protection:

    1. Precision in detecting an attack.

    Many attacks often go unnoticed and also serve to prepare for further broad-based intrusions.

    2. Speed in the process.

    Anything that is not mitigated immediately or in a fraction of a second can not only lead to temporary downtime, e.g. of the website, but can bring down entire infrastructures and thus cause lasting damage.

    3. Absolute European data protection compliance.

    This provides a safeguard against significant liability risks and potential fines in the event of a legal violation.

    4. Personal and direct contact.

    From engineer to C-level, our experts are committed to the customer and are ready with guarantees and customer-oriented action in case of doubt.

    5. Close exchange with authorities.

    As a BSI-qualified critical infrastructure protection provider, we are in regular contact with the authorities.



    Whether you already have a DDoS solution in place or you are considering the topic for the first time, our security experts are always available to provide advice and answer any questions you may have regarding a more effective DDoS protection solution.
