WHY PICK SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
Due to the growing sophistication of distributed denial of service attacks it is becoming frequently common for scrubbing center mitigation to be paired with an on-site mitigation device. This is the DDoS mitigation solution that we have implemented at our Sydney location. This hybrid solution provides a more fine-tuned barrier from DDoS attacks as off-site scrubbing centres are better suited for large scale protection whereas onsite in-line mitigation devices can detect and eliminate the smallest of attacks at our network edge.
To better protect our clients at our Sydney location we have paired up with two cloud-based scrubbing centres, Serverius and Staminus. Utilising two cloud-based providers allows us to push our international traffic through different providers in the event of an issue arising with either of these cloud-based sites. This redundant set up is essential in a world where new attack methods are being constantly introduced. The beauty of utilising these two mitigation providers is due to Serverius scrubbing for EU-based traffic while Staminus provides scrubbing for US-based traffic before any of this traffic reaches our Australian infrastructure.
Our domestic DDoS protection is provided by our NSFocus Anti-DDoS mitigation cluster which runs in-line on the network. In-line solutions provide “always-on” protection where each packet entering the network will be inspected prior to reaching a client’s service. These in-line solutions are needed for real-time protection as malicious traffic can be detected and mitigated without disrupting the flow of traffic to the network. Utilising an on-site solution also allows for us to make customer-specific adjustments where needed since generic rules may not apply to all applications. This type of solution is perfect for client needing a custom DDoS mitigation solution.
