Server Security

What is DoS & DDoS mitigation?

DoS & DDoS mitigation is effectively the implementation of the system that prevents or severely impedes the implications of a DoS (Denial of Service) or DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack on a sever. These attacks are specifically aimed at either forcing the server to either restart or consuming enough of its resources to heavily impact of the level of service it can provide. DoS & DDoS attacks can be carried out for a number of malicious reasons and so it is important to ensure you data centre has the best possible mitigation processes in place.
