Our DDoS Protect solutions offer cloud-based filtering of malicious traffic

SEACOM Business offers protection solutions against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. These are cyber threats that are designed to overload and crash a network in order to prevent legitimate users from accessing websites, e-commerce stores and servers. Such attacks can cripple large companies and compromise their vital data. If your IT network is under a DDoS attack, call us now for assistance on +27 11 038 7045.

Our DDoS Protect solutions automatically detect any abnormal increase in the volume of traffic coming into the network. The software re-routes all the traffic through a DDoS guard, which filters genuine users from the malicious data. This means that only clean data is sent through to the company servers, which prevents a system overload and subsequent crash.

These solutions have been specially developed to protect high-level applications, such as e-commerce sites and business servers. They maximise the efficiency of the bandwidth of the network and allow a business to function normally at all times. DDoS Protect can be set up on-site or mitigated through our cloud-based platform.

Benefits of cloud-based filtering

Our DDoS solutions can be hosted on a cloud-based platform, which means that the software is hosted online and can be accessed or installed at any office branch, no matter its location. This has many advantages for multinational companies, including always-on monitoring and remote access capabilities.

It also means that the DDoS Protect software can be monitored remotely and, if there is an unexpected error, it can be fixed without having to visit the business premises. SEACOM’s cloud hosting platform is secure and equipped with advanced antimalware and firewalls. This ensures that our enterprise DDoS Protect solutions are always available.

Large companies operating in South Africa should consider this security software for their networks and online properties. Prevent targeted attacks and server overloads with our cloud-based DDoS protection. For more information or to get a quote for these solutions, please contact SEACOM Business today.
