Web Hosting requires a global infrastructure deployment which incorporates DDOS mitigators, Intrusion Detection systems, and Firewalls both at the edge and the Rack level. The deployments must be capable of weathering frequent hacking and DDOS attempts (sometimes as many as 3 in a single day) without any degradation.
Protection against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Attacks:
Denial of Service is currently the top source of financial loss due to cybercrime. The goal of a Denial-of-Service attack is to disrupt your business activities by stopping the operation of your web site, email or web applications. This is achieved by attacking the servers or network that host these services and overloading the key resources such as bandwidth, CPU and memory. The typical motives behind such attacks are extortion, bragging rights, political statements, damaging competition etc. Virtually any organization that connects to the Internet is vulnerable to these attacks. The business impact of large sustained DoS attacks is colossal, as it would lead to lost profits, customer dissatisfaction, productivity loss etc due to in availability or deterioration of service. A DoS attack in most cases would even land you with the largest bandwidth overage invoice that you have ever seen.
Only some companies across the globe like vishalhost.com offer a distributed Denial-of-Service protection system which ensures unrivaled protection against DoS and DDoS attacks on your internet-facing infrastructures i.e. your websites, email and mission critical web applications, by using sophisticated state-of-the-art technology which automatically triggers itself as soon as an attack is launched. The DDoS mitigator's filtering system blocks almost all fraudulent traffic and ensures that legitimate traffic is allowed up to the largest extent possible. These systems have seamlessly protected several web sites from large service outages caused by simultaneous attacks as large as 300+ Mbps in the past, thus allowing organizations to focus on their Business.
The firewall protection is round-the-clock firewall protection system secures the perimeter and delivers the very best first line of defense. It uses highly adaptive and advanced inspection technology to safeguard your data, website, email and web applications by blocking unauthorized network access. It ensures controlled connectivity between the servers that store your data and the Internet through the enforcement of security policies devised by subject matter experts.
Network Intrusion Detection system
Vishalhost.com has been found to have a highly stable network intrusion detection, prevention and vulnerability management system which provide rapid, accurate and comprehensive protection against targeted attacks, traffic anomalies, "unknown" worms, spyware/adware, network viruses, rogue applications and other zero-day exploits. It uses ultramodern high-performance network processors that carry out thousands of checks on each packet flow simultaneously with no perceivable increase in latency. As packets pass through our systems, they are fully scrutinized to determine whether they are legitimate or harmful. This method of instantaneous protection is the most effective mechanism of ensuring that harmful attacks do not reach their targets.
