According to Nexusguard’s research, the average ISP sees as many as 500 DDoS attacks per month. This includes not only attacks targeting the ISP itself, but also all attacks targeting their customers. This is an incredible burden that takes up valuable resources that could be used to better serve customers. As a result of the massive number of DDoS attacks, most ISPs are forced to purchase expensive equipment and bandwidth to maintain reliable services.

However, it is difficult to predict how much additional capacity is sufficient to mitigate the attacks. Attack traffic is unforeseeable, and attackers do not provide timetables of their attacks—not only does new equipment take time to be delivered and installed, it is an inefficient investment that serves no purpose once the attacks have passed. In addition, DDoS attacks have the potential to cause collateral damage, affecting even non-victim customers and damaging the ISP’s reputation, which leads to higher customer turnover.

As network security and reliability are crucial for developing a cloud infrastructure, Nexusguard believes that it is only apt to turn to cloud services to resolve these risks. Nexusguard’s cloud-based anti-DDoS services brings flexibility and low-cost benefits to ISPs and data centers.

“With the protection of Nexusguard InfraProtect, our service reliability has consistently improved over the past few months. Customer complaints have fallen dramatically, as has the cost of defending against DDoS attacks. Now we can finally allocate our resources to projects that are more relevant to our core business,” said Terry L Product Manager at an ISP that has adopted InfraProtect. Freed from the burden of DDoS attacks, the ISP no longer has to acquire excessive bandwidth and equipment. The ISP can now focus all its energy and resources on other core business projects for growth and expansion.

Organizations have remained highly interested in Nexusguard Infraprotect since its debut six months ago.However, even for ISPs who’s in-house team of information security and anti-DDoS specialists can proactively detect an attack and determine targeted IP addresses, the sharp increase in the number and scale of attacks has become an overwhelming burden. As always, Nexusguard listened to customers’ suggestions and made its services even better.

Customers now have a new option—InfraProtect Auto, which automatically detects an attack and routes affected traffic through Nexusguard’s globally distributed scrubbing centers. InfraProtect Auto reduces the response time for DDoS attack, making mitigation much more effective and reliable. With InfraProtect Control and InfraProtect Auto, ISPs and data centers have more flexibility when allocating their resources.
