Distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are on the rise. More IoT devices, increases in bandwidth, and DDoS-for-hire services have made these malicious disruptions easier than ever. And with a growing number of business services moving online, the damage from even a few hours of disruption can be catastrophic.
Shielding your operations from the threat of DDoS means building protection into the infrastructure itself. GLAD takes advantage of i3D.net’s extensive global network to block attacks at the edge. Our sophisticated protection uses unique methods to restrict untrustworthy IPs in advance and block the source of the attacks as they come in.
Gaming is now the industry most affected by DDoS attacks, accounting for over a third of all attacks. Bad player experience, mushrooming hosting charges, and a threat to studio continuity are just some of the negative impacts of a DDoS attack.
Game developers can craft a robust DDoS defense by using GLAD’s API/JSON integration, white- and blacklisting features, and scanning custom IPs from players, among many other tools.
A distributed denial-of-service attack (or DDoS) is a malicious attempt by a bad actor to disrupt an online service.
How does it work?
In the event of an attack, i3D.net’s GLAD anti-DDoS protection blocks the negative traffic within our privately owned network, preventing it from ever reaching your servers.
