DDOS Attack, and How it Affects YOU!
2 months ago
Recently, we have had several new clients come over to the SquareHook tool while dealing with a DDOS Attack.Â For those of you who may not know what that is, weâ€™re here to enlighten you!
A DDOS, or distributed denial-of-service attack is when a website is temporarily down /interrupted by a host through the Internet. There is occasionally someone out there that purposefully does damage to a website or server.Â An attacker tells computers to contact a certain server/website repeatedly.Â The new flow of traffic can confuse or shutdown a legitimate website in the process.Â
Talk about inconvenient!Â If someone who was trying to access your website during a ddos attack and hits your site, they may think that something was broken or perhaps your company is out of commission.Â Â That is not good for business.
SquareHook takes actions to protect our clients by masking the IP address of the server with a firewall that rejects automated attacks, protecting the end point of the server and flagging the attack across all sites, not just theirs.
