Online gaming brings joy to millions of people every day and the number of players is constantly increasing.
But since the multiplayer experience takes place purely online, any server inaccessibility leads to frustrated
and angry customers. With Link11’s sophisticated security solutions, you can secure your gaming infrastructure
and keep server downtime to an absolute minimum.



DDoS attacks are unfortunately
a permanent problem

Video gaming has become a billion-dollar business and a large part of the
revenue is made through online multiplayer connectivity. Every day, players
log on to the gaming servers to pursue their hobby. Here, however,
customers expect not only smooth performance, but all around-the-clock

DDoS attacks that make logging in difficult or impossible are a major risk
here, especially at peak times or on public holidays. Unavailable servers do
considerable damage to a company’s reputation, and in the case of
particularly long outages, customers may even turn their backs on the
service. The resulting damage can be considerable, both financially and in
terms of external impact. Link11’s infrastructure DDoS protection takes care
of this problem by protecting you and your servers around the clock.

DDoS attacks endangers
professional online gaming

Long gone are the days when e-sports hosted small, barely noticed
niche events. Digital sports have now arrived in the public eye and are
shown live on TV or the Internet. They even fill entire arenas and
stadiums. However, as the popularity grows, so does the potential for
attacks that can severely disrupt online events. In the worst case, a
massive DDoS attack can disrupt an event to the extent that the match
has to be postboned, a major organizational and technical effort that
also damages the tournaments image.

Of course, there are ways to protect even larger e-sports tournaments
from DDoS attacks and to ensure balanced and fair competition. All
information about e-sports and the associated cyber security can be
found in our blog article.
