SEACOM Business DDoS Protect software

SEACOM Business can provide Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection software for large enterprises in South Africa. If your IT network is under a DDoS attack, call us now for assistance on +27 11 038 7045.

DDoS is a sophisticated attack on a company’s servers and network that prevents genuine users from accessing the system. These attacks basically overload a network or server with information, causing it to crash and preventing genuine users (employees or customers) from accessing the company’s online platforms.

These types of attacks can be costly for businesses that rely on e-commerce websites or online applications for their day-to-day functioning and profitability. Our DDoS Protect software will automatically detect an abnormal increase in traffic and route the excess traffic through a DDoS filter. This means that only genuine traffic is sent through to our customers’ servers or website.

Our DDoS Protect solutions protect high-level applications, such as e-commerce sites and business servers from crashes and information overloads. These solutions can be set up on-site at the company premises or transferred to our secure cloud-based platform.
