The main difference is that BlockDos has multiple networks as we are mainly reseller for different companies. At present, there are a few companies that provide true DDOS protection services, and we are resellers for almost all of them. When a client comes to us, and if, none of the networks can handle their attacks, we immediately switch it to other kind of networks or try to work in a mix-mode environment. This is one of the ways the DDoS attack is distributed across multiple networks and by this way we control the cost as well.
The answer is very simple. In fact, we provide additional level of services to our valued clients, as compared to competition. Here at BlockDos, not only do we provide DDoS protection, but we also provide support services which enable our valued clients to perform their operations more smoothly. One of the ways of these entails how to set up the firewall, or how to actually protect their own server by only allowing legitimate web traffic to pass through, while rest of the unwanted bulk traffic remains all blocked and restricted to step anywhere near client's domain. Similarly, DDoS can attack a site by finding out the mail server or FTP server. In such conditions, we also provide solutions to handle such DDoS attacks. Along with that, we also provide 24/7 customer support. Our dedicated customer support is also available in acute emergencies as well. So, we are there for the clients all the time; even if any client is unable to configure his or her server according to our requirement we normally guide them in doing so.
BlockDos currently works with Staminus network which is pretty good network and has a good and reliable performance in any condition. Our enterprise protection is on GiGe Server which is a rock solid network and we have our own co-location arrangement with Pear One Network as well. We are able to distribute the attacks to many different data centers as well as we can just concentrate the attack or push the attack to one data centre and mitigate it from there. There are many kinds of DDoS attacks and each network has its own capability to deal with different DDoS attacks.
We provide all kinds of DDoS protection for the website itself. However, when it comes down to PTP network or IRC, it all needs a different level of protection then. In such conditions, most of the time clients receive a small SYN attack, acknowledgement attack, GET attack, flood attack and various different kinds of other DDoS attacks. We have got the ability to mitigate all of these DDoS attacks. We can deal with anything and everything to do with a DDoS attack.
Here at BlockDos, we can not disclose any information regarding the existing capacity of BlockDos network, or exactly how big our network is, but we have seen attacks over 6 Gbps mitigated easily through our BlockDos services. We are confident that no matter what the size of the DDoS attack, our network is fully geared up to fight it.
It’s very simple. All you have to do is sign up for our services and pay for it. Before signing up let us know your company name and requirements. If you are already under a DDoS attack then give us some details about it. After this, we will provide you an IP. You or your establishment will use given IP but in your own DNS or in our protected DNS. During all this process, we will be acting as a man in the middle. In other words, all the traffic will come to us; we will clean it and then forward filtered traffic to the user backhand server accordingly.
We have different firewalls and we have custom firewalls as well. But in today’s world there are lots of DDoS attacks that can bypass the firewall. Firewalls will get a seat in a real traffic and let it pass through. We study each attack and put the filters accordingly. As compared with our competitors, we also offer special custom filtering. We can filter any kind of DDoS attack without turning its code or link code. Another unique feature is that we also do Mail Relay and DNS protection as well. What Mail Relay does is very simple. For example, you have a server in Germany and you are using BlockDos services. Now the email coming from that server will also reveal the real IP address of their backhand server. We also provide protection against that. Similarly, we provide assistance to deal with incoming Mail Relay in which, whether it’s an incoming or outgoing email, the DDoS attacker will never know the exact location as it will get proxy as well.
