What Grey Wizard protects against and why you need us.
Protection from DDoS attacks
Why it is so important
DDoS attacks happen on a daily basis and multiple companies deal with their consequences all the time. Whatever the reason for such attacks, they always cause measurable financial losses. The way such attacks are organized today has evolved to become more precise than ever. The tactics used by criminals behind DDoS attacks involve overloading and distracting your IT staff to try and breach your security system in order to eg. steal your data or funds. What every website owner should do is to prepare an incident plan in case that happens. DDoS mitigation is the best way to protect your network and ensure business continuity.
How we work
Grey Wizard requires changing client DNS server records, so that all HTTP/HTTPS traffic can go through our filtering layers. Our solution inspects the traffic and uses advanced algorithms and rules to stop attacks and filter the traffic in such a way that the client receives only the correct requests. Grey Wizard servers operate in multiple geographical locations to block attacks at their source. Also, user data can be served from the nearest location, which significantly reduces website loading time.
What we protect against
Grey Wizard neutralises both network and application level attacks. Thanks to the large number of our clients, our system continuously learns new types of attacks, which are then added to our list. Currently, we protect against the following type of attacks:
TCP SYN+ACK TCP FIN
TCP RESET TCP ACK
Reflected ICMP & UDP ICMP Flood
Local File Inclusions HTTP GET Flood HTTP POST Flood
HTTPS Attacks SQL Injection
Grey Wizard offers DDoS protection and can be used by everyone who owns a website, regardless of the technology and hardware. It takes only a few minutes to activate the service – the only thing you need is to change the domain record on DNS servers. You do not have to install any additional hardware or software. Grey Wizard protects against all types of DDoS attacks: application and infrastructure level or botnet attacks. We also protect against SQL injection or cross-site scripting attacks. Grey Wizard learns new attack tactics 24/7.
BGP allows you to quickly switch traffic between the client's and Grey Wizard's infrastructure. The main advantage is filtering traffic pointed directly to an IP address, which means that there is no need to make any changes to your domains or filter continuously. The BGP mode requires specific network settings, therefore please contact our technical service to discuss the cooperation details.
