DDoS Mitigation

Central Catalog_Pantone_11_C

Cloud-based Denial of Service mitigation is included for all clients subscribing to the OARnet Internet Service. The OARnet DDoS mitogation service is designed to protect your network and servers, helping you to meet the ever-increasing business requirements for uninterrupted service.

On-demand DDoS Mitigation:

In the event of a DDoS attack, clients can activate this service by initiating a DDoS mitigation request through our 24x7 Network Operations Center. Once initiated, OARnet technical staff perform a traffic analysis and provide a recommended DDoS mitigation strategy. These mitigations are temporary and are removed after a consult with our security team.

Pre-configured DDoS Mitigation:

Pre-configured, always-on configurations can be placed in the OARnet backbone to protect clients from common DDoS vectors. Implemented by request, this proactive approach requires customized configurations determined through a combination of traffic analysis and consultation with your networking team.

Monitored Pre-authorized DDoS Mitigation:

OARnet performs mitigation of DDoS events when detected by automated monitoring tools. Customers subscribed to this premium service will be notified of service impacting DDoS events and mitigation measures performed. Each service uses a combination of local and carrier-based cloud mitigation tools.
