For basic protection of the backbone network, we use the RTBH method. This is considered standard in provider networks and helps as an immediate measure in case of large-volume attacks. We have automated this procedure so it will be applied automatically within a few seconds.
Another proven strategy against large-volume DDoS attacks is when the corresponding network, in which e.g. Your server is only visible in Switzerland or Europe. Many foreign attackers go empty handed because they can no longer find the IP address of the server. But local customers in Switzerland can still access your services.
In this method, the incoming IP traffic is diverted by a kind of washing machine. To you then comes only the washed and cleaned traffic. We work with several such centers so you can choose who gets your traffic washed. This redirection can be set up permanently or temporarily if necessary.
