With the rapid spread of crippling computer viruses and high-profile security breaches on the rise, cybersecurity is among the highest priorities for most IT professionals. However, one of the most common and debilitating ways to hurt your business is a simple Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack.
Atlantic Metro can defend your business against DDoS attacks to ensure reliable network access and prevent potential downtime. With Atlantic Metro’s DDoS Protection services, we monitor and analyze your network traffic 24/7 to identify anomalies which could be indicative of a DDoS attack. Once we have determined that an attack is being directed at your business, we automatically re-route your traffic, and filter out malicious data packets, before redirecting ordinary (“clean”) traffic back to your servers. In most circumstances, this takes effect within a minute of when we detect an attack. This allows your users to continue using applications and services normally, without the illegitimate traffic ever reaching you.

What is a DDoS Attack
In a DDoS attack, your servers are flooded by a large volume of artificial traffic to overwhelm them and render them temporarily unavailable. For businesses targeted by these attacks, this is catastrophic. Not only does it interrupt normal business operations and create unnecessary setbacks for your team, but it can also impact your business’s reputation. This is why DDoS Protection is essential to defend against these attacks.
The Atlantic Metro Advantage
Atlantic Metro is able to leverage its role as a Network Services provider to minimize latency caused by the need to re-route traffic to one of our scrubbing stations. This ensures better, more reliable Internet connectivity during an attack. Furthermore, implementation is simple and easy, as the Included DDoS Protection plan is put into place with each of our Network Connectivity services.
