The cyber battlefield is no match for your gaming experience. With our cutting-edge DDOS protection, your players will immerse themselves in the game, oblivious to any ongoing server attacks. Our sophisticated defenses shield your server from common assaults such as UDP floods, ensuring your server's stability and your game's continuity.
Moreover, we are not content with just handling basic attacks. Our advanced infrastructure conducts deep-packet inspections*, filtering out even the most targeted and deceptive attacks. We scrutinize every bit of traffic, distinguishing genuine gaming packets from intrusive ones - no matter how convincing they may appear.
In selected locations, we've partnered with Corero and implemented their SmartWall technology. Trusted by high-risk game servers globally, the Corero SmartWall stands as one of the most effective solutions against DDOS attacks on the market. It's the unyielding shield for those 1000 slot Minecraft realms and top-tier Rust servers that won't let any disruption steal the spotlight from your gameplay.

While we are at the forefront of defending your gaming server from DDOS attacks, there are steps you can take to further reduce the chances of becoming a target:
Remember, the game doesn't have to stop when the attacks start. Trust us to maintain the continuity and quality of your gaming experience, no matter what cyber threats lurk in the shadows.
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal functioning of a network, service, or server by overwhelming it with a flood of internet traffic. DDOS attacks are carried out using multiple compromised computers, often forming a "botnet", to launch an attack on a targeted system.
These attacks can be categorized into three types: Volumetric attacks, Protocol attacks, and Application layer attacks. Volumetric attacks are the most common type of DDOS attacks, where the attackers inundate the network with a high volume of data to overwhelm the system's bandwidth.
Protocol attacks, also known as a Denial of Service (DOS) attack, exploit vulnerabilities in a server's resources, specifically focusing on areas like network connections and firewall resources. They target the protocol level of a network, including processes like pings and connection requests.
Application layer attacks, also known as application attacks, target specific applications running on your servers. These attacks mimic normal user behavior, which makes them harder to detect and mitigate.
DDOS mitigation involves a set of techniques or tools for resisting or lessening the impact of a distributed denial of service (DDOS) and denial of service (DOS) attacks on networks attached to the Internet by protecting the target and relay networks.
The attack surface, which includes all the possible points (like IP addresses) an attacker could use to launch an attack, expands with the growth in cloud service usage and increasing network resources, thus requiring a robust DDOS mitigation strategy and response plan.
So, whether it's a high volume attack that saturates your bandwidth, or a protocol or application layer attack that exhausts your system's resources, our world-class DDOS protection services help safeguard your gaming servers, ensuring an uninterrupted and superior gaming experience.
