Protection against DoS (Denial of Service) and DDos (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks has become increasingly important over the last years. Those attacks aim at disrupting server operation by overloading the server or the whole server infrastructure. If this happens, the Teamspeak server or game server is no longer available, the connection quality decreases or the connection is completely lost.
Many game server hosts will then deactivate the server under attack. This won’t happen at 4Netplayers!
We filter server attacks (bad traffic) from regular – also called good – traffic in our multi-stage build. This doesn’t affect latency (ping) at all and that means that you can keep playing normally even if the server is under attack.
Corero Smartwall "First Line of Defense"
The Corero Smartwall is the heart of our DDoS protection. This anti-DDoS solution was designed for use by hosting providers and datacenter operators.
Unlike many products available, Corero can brilliantly handle UDP-based traffic. The Corero Smartwall analyses every single incoming package and decides whether it should be forwarded or not. The patented DDoS Defense Algorithm generates filter rules in real time and sets them according to the attack type. Thanks to this, the Smartwall can react to up to then unknown attacks.
Our multi-stage design enables our DDoS solution to filter up to 30 million DDoS-attack packages per second while maintaining a high service performance level. A client won’t even know that a server is currently under attack, as they can keep using their game server or Teamspeak 3 server without restrictions.
Safe Protection at No Extra Charge
To us, protection against DDoS attacks is part of the service, which is why we don't charge you for it. Protection against DDoS attacks is free and included in all our products.
