Preventing Internet attacks

Recommended Posts

Internet attacks have become more common and some attacks have been sanctioned by political organizations or national policy.


With the increased tempo of these attacks ( denial of service, bot nets, hacks etc. ), what preventive measures do you or your stream hosting companies put into place to ensure continuous delivery of your multimedia stream.

Our main data center in One Wilshire has one of the top rated protections against DdOS attacks (per Webhosting Talk dot COM) in the industry. We get a few DdOS attacks every month and they are handled very well by the front-end applications / hardware.


Our previous data center told us we were too small to protect against DdOS attacks and shut down one of our servers within 24 hours of an attack from China. They null addressed the server and wouldn't give us back our customers Auto DJ mp3 files. We promptly pulled all of our remaining business from them.
