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.
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.
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 amount of trouble tickets we have to resolve, lowering our service costs.”
