DDoS attack strategies are constantly improving in tandem with technological advancements in order to crash an enterprise’s systems in the shortest time. Because of its ease of setup and high efficiency, the DDoS Protection solution with CDN technology is considered the best option to deal with this problem.
What is a DDoS Attack?
DDoS (distributed denial of service) is a kind of cyber-attack to disrupt servers, the huge amount of traffic originating from the attack makes the system overloaded and unable to respond. recover real traffic.
DDoS occurs when hackers use large numbers of malicious devices to flood the bandwidth or resources of a targeted system: website/ server/ VPS. When a website crashes, it is most likely under DDoS attack.
Prevent the largest server attack with DDoS Attack Protection
The DDoS Protection system of a leading CDN service provider has successfully detected the largest-ever DDoS attack in July 2021 with a scale of up to 17.2 million requests per second, three times more than previous DDoS attacks.
This CDN service provider announced that: a large-scale DDoS attack campaign was carried out by hackers through a Botnet connection network targeting partners using CDN services in the financial sector. This DDoS attack campaign is built on a network of more than 20,000 Bots located in more than 125 countries worldwide. When the attack occurred, the system received a total of more than 330 million requests from many continuous attacks. However, this campaign collapsed quickly, the company’s DDoS protection system promptly detected and handled this DDoS attack before it could cause big problems. And CDN is the key to stopping this attack.

CDN’s role in Anti DDoS
The power of a CDN to speed up websites and increase server performance is well-known. Not only that, but CDNs also play a vital part in DDoS protection by minimizing website load and hiding the origin server IP. As a result, CDN is regarded as a simple but effective anti-DDoS solution.
CDN technology assists in hiding the server’s IP address. As a result, hackers are unable to detect the original IP server, decreasing the danger of DDoS server attacks and ensuring that the server is always running.
In addition, the CDN system is also integrated with the WAF (Web Application Firewall). This firewall implements anti ddos web based authentication mechanism that distinguishes between real users and bot attack tools.
VNIS | The leading Multi CDN integrated DDoS Protection solution
VNIS is the perfect platform to help you integrate the world’s leading Multi CDN on a single platform
VNIS is a comprehensive website security platform developed by VNETWORK to detect anomalous network behavior and prevent attacks on the system. Let’s take a look at the most notable utilities that Multi CDN system brings in anti-ddos and Web server security:
DDoS Protection: The servers in the CDN system are capable of detecting and relaying spikes in traffic when there are DDoS attacks at Layer 3/4 (web application layer).
Cloud WAF Firewall: is a commonly used method to anti ddos web. Against attacks on Layer 7 vulnerabilities, especially the top 10 OWASP vulnerabilities. When DDoS occurs, Cloud WAF helps prevent DDoS by analyzing all traffic, detecting and removing harmful traffic.
AI Load Balancing (load balancing on the server system): Helps to expand traffic to servers with spikes in traffic by distributing data streams evenly across the CDN server connection network.
Smart navigation: When one server in the Multi CDN system has a problem, the system will automatically redirect access to other CDN servers to reduce the load on the server, immediately preventing DDoS attacks, and making sure the server is up and running.
Dynamic and static content distribution: perform the task of improving response and connection speed, reducing the bandwidth under load of the original server system in DDoS protection.
