City, State, Country., April 1, 2016 - (PressReleasePoint) -

On March 13 and 16 DDoS-GUARD's protection system was targeted by a series of unprecedentedly powerful DDoS attacks. The detected peak power reached 259 million packets per second, which is 5.5 times more powerful than the largest attack detected by DDoS-GUARD in 2015, and by 38 million packets per second more powerful than the largest attack detected by Akamai company. At the present moment it can be considered as one of the world's most powerful attacks ever occurred on the Internet.

Generally, the attackers were attempting to break down the protection system for 7 hours, using very unusual traffic patterns. During that time the average attack power reached just over 100 000 packets per second. The duty engineering team managed to promptly reconfigure the filtering algorithms in order to ensure safety of customer resources.


"According to our analysts, in order to conduct such an attack several dedicated servers and extensive botnets are required to generate traffic", - commented DDoS-GUARD.


In total, several customer networks were under attack. The technicians have conducted a detailed analysis and integrated the algorithms of preventive protection to counter such attacks in the future.
