DDoS Protection

ANS’s sophisticated DDoSX® platform protects your business from the internet’s biggest attacks, keeping your platforms online when it matters the most.

What is DDoS?

DDoS attacks continuously flood your server and firewall with thousands of fake requests until the volume of requests causes the server to fail, and your site to go offline. DDoS protection puts vital measures in place to mitigate the impact on your business continuity.

Our DDoS protection detects and prevents even the most sophisticated of DDoS attacks, filtering out bad traffic so that your server only receives genuine traffic and your business operates as usual; even in the event of an attack.

Why protect against DDoS?

As technology advances, attackers adapt to make identifying a DDoS attack an increasingly complex task. Our increasingly connected world provides attackers with ample opportunity to take advantage of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable internet-connected devices, and use them to damage unsuspecting victims.

Mitigating DDoS attacks with DDoS protection reduces the significant fall-out of a DDoS. DDoSX is our scalable, global infrastructure offering our clients the very best DDoS protection and Content Delivery Network Services. Discover what DDoS protection from ANS can do for your business.

How does DDoS protection work?

ANS has invested in a global infrastructure to offer our clients the very best in DDoS protection, Content Delivery Network and Web Application Firewall services for their websites. We have built a global network that can scale over time to further develop the DDoS protection we can offer.

Our global infrastructure blocks DDoS attacks closer to the source to prevent DDoS traffic from ever hitting our core network in the UK. Instead, if DDoS traffic is detected, it is discarded from our infrastructure without being passed on to yours.

DDoSX is placed at the mitigation layer in front of your firewall and identifies a DDoS attack before it reaches your solution. It analyses the traffic that your server receives and identifies components that do not make up a typical, genuine request.

Whether you’re the victim of a SYN flood or malformed HTTP requests, there’s no need to worry. Our DDoS protection specialists are busy analysing historical reports to determine attack patterns and adapt our algorithms to ensure that we can defeat even the latest sophisticated, DDoS attacks.

Just works

Works with your current hosting and DNS providers

Use DDoSX regardless of who you host with and who manages your DNS. Or simplify the management of your DNS records and DDoS protection by taking advantage of safeDNS™.

safeDNS is ANS’s easy-to-use DNS platform, with features closely integrated with DDoSX; meaning it’s even quicker and easier to get set up, with 24/7/365 support from our team when you need it.
As safeDNS is protected by DDoSX your DNS lookup and resolution is protected and always available, even in the event of an attack.

The safeDNS API means you can integrate and automate your DNS record set up, as well as your DDoS protection. With common functions and API standards across both safeDNS and DDoSX, it’s simple to integrate the two. Visit the ANS Developer Centre to learn more about what you can automate with the safeDNS and DDoSX APIs.
