i3D.net reduces Impact of DDoS Attacks by over 90 percent

Juniper vSRX Virtual Firewall reduces impact DDoS
15 November 2017

In addition to ever-growing demand for bandwidth and lower latency performance, i3D.net needed to manage increasing attacks on its PC gaming platform, in some regions occurring hourly. After successfully combatting previous DDoS attacks by filtering traffic from transit providers, i3D.net faced application-specific attacks using UDP traffic.

Technology Solution
The Juniper vSRX Virtual Firewall delivers the security i3D.net needs. With this firewall, the network team can easily equip all its locations with reliable state-of-the-art firewalling in a virtual form factor. Juniper Sky Advanced Threat Prevention (ATP) provides extra protection, using real-time information from the cloud to defend the provider’s network against never-before-seen malware, ransomware, and other sophisticated cyber threats.

Business Results
After deploying the vSRX and Sky ATP in seven countries, i3D.net saw effective attacks decrease by over 90 percent, triggering fewer trouble tickets and lower service costs. Filters in the Juniper solution have enabled i3D.net to work with game developers to create traffic and geographic profiles for rate-limiting malicious attack vectors, further improving the gamer’s experience. Stefan Ideler, Chief Technology Officer at i3D.net, explains:

“We are still seeing attacks coming at our services, but effective attacks are down by over 90 percent. Because the Juniper solution is virtual and easily upgradable, it is ideal to deploy in [remote] locations. And, of course, it’s also reduced the number of trouble tickets we have to resolve, lowering our service costs.”

Main Take-Aways

Shielding your operations from the threat of DDoS means building protection into the infrastructure itself. i3D.net’s Anti-DDoS solution takes advantage of i3D.net’s extensive global network to block attacks at the edge. Our sophisticated GLAD-PDC system uses a unique detection method and access control lists to restrict untrustworthy IPs in advance.
