DDoS mitigation is the process of protecting a target from a distributed denial-of service attack. A DDoS attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal traffic of a targeted server, service, or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of internet traffic. A DDoS attack on a company’s website, web application, APIs, network, or data center infrastructure can cause downtime and prevent legitimate users from buying products, using a service, getting information, or any other access. 

Firewall cannot do the job of protecting your network alone. Cybersecurity threat protection strategy requires a DDoS solution that detects and blocks DDoS traffic—in front of the firewall—within Northland’s core network, before we even send the traffic to you. DDoS protection complements a firewall, and allows clean, legitimate traffic to flow through normally, without any impediment.
