Enable automatic detection and prevention of DDoS attacks

SEACOM Business offers numerous networking technologies to large enterprises in South Africa. These include security solutions that allow a company’s network and servers to run optimally and remain protected against advanced cyber threats. One of these security solutions is Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection. If your IT network is under a DDoS attack, call us now for assistance on +27 11 038 7045.

A DDoS attack is used by cyber criminals to overload a server or network with information. The aim is to block genuine users, whether employees or customers, from being able to access a company’s website or network. The resulting system crash can be hugely costly to a business through lost productivity and revenue.

Automatic detection of DDoS attacks

With our DDoS Protect, an enterprise can benefit from the automatic detection and prevention of these attacks. The software automatically detects any abnormal increase in traffic flow through the network and re-routes it through a DDoS guard, which filters the genuine users from malicious data. Only normal traffic is then sent through to the customers’ servers.

DDoS Protect is an important consideration for large companies that rely on networks, applications and e-commerce websites, or organisations that process large volumes of data. These solutions can be set up on-site or transferred to our cloud-based platform. The automatic nature of this security solution means that the system runs autonomously and does not need a person to oversee the functioning at all times.

This reduces costs for a business and enables 24/7 protection against network overloads and crashes. Use leading technologies to allow your business to run at maximum efficiency. For more information or to get a quote for our DDoS Protect solutions, please contact SEACOM Business today.
