DOSarrest is a cloud based DDoS technology service that since its inception in 2007, has developed, implemented and real world tested a wide range of proprietary methods and techniques to stop DDoS attacks. We do not rely on purpose built DDoS mitigation devices to stop all attacks. Our experience has taught us that no single DDoS mitigation device can stop all varieties of DDoS attacks in existence today
Our nodes are geographically dispersed in such a way as to offer our worldwide customer base DDoS protection as well as the ability to handle large bursts of legitimate traffic. It operates like a content delivery network except it can also stop any and all DDoS attacks. We cache as well as proxy for added performance.
Once a website is running on our service, the site is immediately protected 24/7 from any DDoS attack. The base configuration for every customer mitigates a wide number of incursions, including ICMP & UDP floods, Port scans, SYN attack, and Distributed Reflection DoS (DRDOS). We then build a custom configuration that is architected to the individual customer website design and layout, ensuring optimal performance while further protecting the site from the more sophisticated attack techniques such as HTTP/S GET, HTTP/S POST, HOIC/JSLOIC and Fragmented Packets.
For our monitoring strategy, our Security Operations Center (SOC) dynamically sets alerts on the number of requests to your site for a given unit of time that is deemed normal for your site. Should the requests exceed the determined thresholds, our team will analyze the traffic to determine the next course of action and apply any additional mitigation techniques. This is all performed without interruption to service and no intervention by the customer. We have also built our own custom monitoring system that will alert us to any performance or site unavailability. This custom monitor is completely independent from our mitigation nodes, operating from 8 different networks in 6 geographic regions, and is designed to measure load times for each customer website at each mitigation node, and alert our SOC if the load times fall beyond a defined threshold.
We have our own custom built customer access area (DSS) where customers are able to view and make changes to their configurations as well as see an attack in real-time. Because of the geographical distribution of our mitigation nodes, our customers are able to customize the cache capabilities of our systems for optimal performance and can be fine-tuned on hundreds of parameters and options for maximum customization.
All of the above is supported 24/7/365 by an experienced SOC, who can be reached via phone, e-mail or chat.
