A large number of businesses have prepared their infrastructure insufficiently against high traffic and DDoS attack by integrating a hardware appliance in their systems. But nowadays the capacity of this hardware is not enough to deal with large and sophisticated DDoS attacks.
Link11 has developed a hybrid solution that offers protection against combined attacks on application and network layer.
The hybrid solution protects on both sides: The hardware installed in the business infrastructure protects against application attacks. The external scrubbing center from Link11 protects against the bandwidth-heavy and volumetric attacks. This means that the Link11 Protection Cloud is the ideal addition to your existing hardware. The appliance oversees traffic and blocks DDoS attacks on Layer 3-7. When the amount of DDoS packages on network layer exceed a certain value, Link11 is alarmed, offers counter-measures immediately and takes over the mitigation via BGP.
