Many countries have been trying to digitize the public sector since before yesterday. In the search for the best
possible digitization tool, there is hardly any way around the cloud – the technical possibilities coupled with
great flexibility are an unbeatable argument, but also harbor extremely high security risks. With Link11’s
protection solutions, you can reduce these risks to a minimum.


Things are getting cloudy in the
Public Sector

Whether Germany, the UK or Singapore – the transformation to digitalization
is in full swing. Some countries are already further along, while others are still
in the early stages of their efforts, but they are all united by the same idea: to
digitize all services and offer them online to citizens in a simple and
straightforward manner. With the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the
benefits of contactless and direct access to public services also quickly
became clear. But with the onset of the pandemic, many public entities felt
the full force of concentrated cybercrime for the first time, and protection
solutions were often not at the level they perhaps should have been.

And once the Covid-19 phase ends, it will be equally important to keep
security as tight as possible. Securing infrastructure or web applications
should always be a top priority, so that even small attacks won’t lead to
major negative consequences.


The Public Cloud

Because of the ease of migration and massive capacity, many public sectors are moving to large commercial cloud providers. The advantages are obvious, but it should equally not be forgotten that this unintentionally opens the back door. Commercial cloud solutions are often not reliably secured, and the recent past has shown that the public sector is also not optimally equipped in the event of a cyber attack.

Digitization is a great opportunity
for the public sector, but not without risks


  • The transition from previous work processes to an additional digital track creates additional hurdles.
  • Users have used digitally mature services for years in the private sector and expect similarly streamlined services in the public sector.
  • Digital availability and optimal user guidance must be equally available on a wide range of devices.
  • Digital processes are further complicated by complex legal frameworks that must be adhered to at all costs.


  • The public sector is facing sources of danger that never existed before. These must be taken seriously, not just when it’s too late.
  • Server failures can lead to massive bureaucratic obstacles if expected services suddenly suffer from a malfunction.
  • Users expect services to be fully available without interruptions or compromised performance.
  • The potential risk of personal data loss is even more critical in public administration than in other sectors.


Link11 technology can protect your web applications, and digital infrastructure from DDoS attacks. Its solutions can be used individually or in combination to provide 24/7 protection and ensure unrestricted operation of all services.

With Link11 Infrastructure DDoS Protection, you can directly protect your entire infrastructure (such as servers or networks) against volumetric and non-volumetric attacks on layers 3-4. Our automated AI system detects and mitigates attacks before they become dangerous for you – even during major attacks. Service outages are thus reduced to an absolute minimum.


Link11’s Web DDoS Protection protects vulnerable network interfaces that are used, for example, for form creation or login processes. Thanks to our always-on principle, these points are optimally secured around the clock. In addition, Web DDoS Protection offers Bot Management, Secure DNS, Secure CDN and Zero Touch WAF, further services that round out the package perfectly.


You can count on:

  1. 1

    Automated technology

    Once implemented, our “Made in Germany” protection solutions work automatically and without assistance from human personnel. This is made possible by our intelligent and patented AI, which recognizes all processes and independently intervenes in the situation at the required time.

  2. 2

    Guaranteed data protection

    Our technology strictly adheres to official EU data protection regulations. IP addresses, for example, never leave our secured scrubbing centers and will never fall into the hands of third parties.

  3. 3

    Guaranteed services

    With our security solutions, you enjoy the same SLAs global companies already rely on. This means you get real-time responses on all vectors, lightning-fast mitigation even in the biggest DDoS attack case, and a guaranteed service uptime of 99.99 percent.

  4. 4

    Carbon neutrality

    The climate is important to us. That’s why we optimize all our internal processes together with ClimatePartner to make them carbon neutral. We also select our partners and suppliers with this in mind to maximize our green efforts.

Free DDoS protection for public sector during the pandemic

For much of the Covid19 pandemic, Link11 provided the basic version of its DDoS protection service to the public sector free of charge. We had noticed a sharp increase in attacks on this sector and it became apparent that some organizations were not optimally prepared for what was happening.

During this time, we helped many health care facilities, government agencies, and educational institutions adopt our processes to their unique circumstances. You too benefit from our advanced technology, which many companies have been using for years and has proven itself in the public sector during an exceptionally trying situation.

A close and trusting partnership

Link11 is actively involved in the competence area of IT security and in the investigation of cybercrime. We’re an official partner of national and international professional associations such as the German G4C and cooperate closely with the BSI (Federal Office for Information Security) and the BKA (Bundeskriminalamt).
