Transworld’s DDoS Mitigation Service is a managed service that provides customers Internet connections and Internet facing hosts with Mitigation against the threat of DDoS attacks. During an attack a customer’s traffic is redirected through our DDoS Mitigation platform which intelligently identifies and drops malicious attacks such as traffic in our core network before it reaches a customer port where it will cause the most damage.
Transworld’s DDoS Mitigation Service uses Attack Detection and Attack Mitigation Systems located at Transworld’s Internet gateway, to analyze, identify and discard malicious DDoS attack traffic generating from Internet before it reaches a customer’s port. By filtering the malicious traffic in our backbone, the customers Internet connection and hosts do not become saturated with DDoS attack traffic and can remain operational.
Transworld’s DDOS Mitigation Service is currently focusing on country’s Financial Institutions, high-end corporates/MNCs, and CDN to ensure their highest availability for high uptime dependent business.
ON-DEMAND SERVICE OPTION
When an attack is detected, the customer contacts and requests Transworld Technical Assistance Centre (TAC) to enable DDoS mitigation service, by quoting their DDoS Mitigation Service ID (SID). By customer’s consent, the task will be carried out, ensuring that Mitigation is not activated and traffic is not re-directed due to non-malicious activity known to the customer, such as large file transfers, a special event.
How it Works?
DDoS Mitigation is a process which redirects Internet traffic destined for a customer’s host or network infrastructure through a Threat Management System (TMS).
The Threat-Management System analyzes the customer’s traffic flow through peak traffic rates, attack signatures and packet inspection techniques. These techniques involve protocols, IP addresses, port numbers and other data which helps identify and drop malicious DDoS attack traffic.
Under normal operating conditions customers’ traffic will flow to/from the Internet via the most direct path across Transworld’s IP backbone.
Customers Internet Service remains operational even when being attacked, maximizing the availability of the customer’s website, on-line services and applications.
