Customized DDoS Protection

You already know that ReliableSite provides free DDoS protection, but have you seen our new advanced set of controls that allow customers to fine tune mitigation for specific applications?

Server administrators can filter specific IPs or set attack size limits to reduce the risk of blocking normal traffic when mitigating attacks. The newly developed DDoS protection is exclusive to ReliableSite dedicated servers. All of the brand’s servers come standard with up to 10 Gbps DDoS protection at no extra charge.

“Our DDoS protection must become more sophisticated as internet security becomes more complicated,” said Radic Davydov, founder and CEO of ReliableSite. “We are giving our customers all of the tools to defend against evolving online threats.”

The advanced controls, developed in-house, will allow applications with unique traffic patterns to thrive behind ReliableSite’s DDoS protection. Customers have the option to designate thresholds for UDP and ICMP traffic before the mitigation of an attack. This ensures that a server, such as a VPN, running a UDP-heavy application will not send false DDoS attack alerts or deny ordinary traffic. It is possible to completely block UDP traffic for dedicated servers that run other types of services. Server administrators can also whitelist IPs and ports to be excluded from DDoS mitigation.

We first offered free protection against DDoS attacks to our New York City area customers in 2014, and to our data center in Miami early 2015. It is a hardware-based protection instantly mitigates malicious traffic without packet loss.
