In this post, you will learn more about CaliberServers DDoS protection. We will explain how it works as quickly as possible and what attacks we can protect your service from!
What is a DDoS attack?
A distributed denial of service (DDoS) is an attack where a person or team of individuals sends a flood of network packets to a server.
DDoS attacks usually can not be traced back to the source as the attackers use compromised computers (botnets/stressers), amplify off a poor infrastructure or service (NTP, DNS, SNMP etc), and make use of spoofed machines to initiate their attacks.
The best way to stop DDoS attacks is a hosting provider who gives real DDoS protection, and gaming sector is one of the main targets of DDoS attacks. Above all, game hosting providers need to be well protected from these frequent huge threats. For instance, DDoS attacks mostly use the UDP mode, which most game servers and voice servers use.
CaliberServers has developed a unique DDoS protection, which was specially made for game servers.
Therefore to offer you the best protection against DDoS attacks, Our engineers analyzed how the most popular online games worked (DayZ, Minecraft, FiveM, Rust, etc…) Through laboratory and actual user testing, we have studied and identified the vulnerabilities of different applications and the different attack strategies.
We can provide solutions adapted to each type of game with our DDoS protection! So rest assured. With CaliberServers, you will be well protected!
For instance, CaliberServers DDoS protection works like below:
- Incoming DDoS attack against your service.
- System starts detecting malicious traffic.
- System starts mitigating malicious traffic.
- The regular game traffic is unaffected.
- Stress-free and no angry players asking why the server is unreachable/laggy.
- Our mitigation capacity is continuously increasing.
- Powerful protection from small and large attacks.
- You don’t have to worry. You just have to play.
In conclusion, we will protect you from:
- ALL KINDS OF TCP ATTACKS.
- DNS FLOOD.
- FRAGMENTED ACK.
- UDP FLOOD.
- REFLECTED ICMP & UDP.
- CONNECTION FLOOD.
- BRUTE FORCE.
- STEAM AMPLIFICATION.
- MIXED SYN + UDP.
- PING OF DEATH.
- AS WELL AS OTHER ATTACKS.
Please remember that this is only a tiny checklist of some DDoS that we can protect you from. If you have any questions or concerns concerning anything, please contact us.
We also make custom DDoS filters for any client with us. For instance, if you desire us to create a custom DDoS filter for your service or even for your own game, then we can certainly create it to make sure that you are really safeguarded even against the most detailed “Layer 4/7” attacks which no other provider genuinely provides.
Additionally to our exceptional DDoS protection, we also offer an Anycast solution for your services! Please read here on how CaliberServers can assist boost your game server population using our Anycast network.
