Everyday, your website and internet-facing resources are at risk of attack from hundreds of thousands of compromised connected devices working collectively toward a singular goal – to take your organization offline.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks crash websites, destabilize networks and halt business operations by overwhelming your online resources with floods of “junk data”, leading to lost revenue, damaged reputations and possible extortion attempts. As the Internet of Things (IOT) and the availability of ever higher bandwidth speeds expand, so too does the threat of catastrophic DDoS attacks.
Merit’s DDoS Protection Service can safeguard your organization against sustained, volumetric DDoS attacks by proactively monitoring your traffic and taking appropriate mitigation action — keeping your services available, your reputation untarnished and your internet connectivity up and running.
Our service is backed by a team of highly experienced and certified networking and security specialists who monitor your traffic 24x7x365 using analytics and best-in-class threat detection services. By leveraging our buying power, we pass the cost savings for these services directly onto our Members, building an insurance pool of protection from volumetric DDoS attacks. Unlike other cloud mitigation service providers, we know your traffic patterns and will vet any variations to confirm a DDoS attack before notifying you — no false positives.
