  • DDoS Protection By VYKIX: Safeguarding Your Online Business

In today’s digital landscape, safeguarding your online operations is crucial. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks pose a significant threat. This article explores DDoS attacks, how they work, and how VYKIX DDoS protection can ensure uninterrupted online operations.

So, what exactly is a DDoS attack?

In a DDoS attack, the attacker aims to flood the target server, service, or network with massive internet traffic, disrupting its regular operation. Consequently, this can result in substantial revenue loss and harm a business’s reputation.

The challenge in countering DDoS attacks is that attackers often use multiple devices, typically compromised devices forming botnets. Consequently, this makes it difficult to trace the attack’s source.

Common Types of DDoS attacks:

  1. UDP Flood: Targets companies hosting video games and services utilizing the UDP protocol, leaving them vulnerable to attack.
  2. DNS Flood: Aims at DNS servers, overloading them with traffic and making them inaccessible to legitimate users.
  3. TCP SYN Flood: Utilizes the TCP/IP protocol’s structure to inundate the target with TCP SYN packets. Consequently, this depletes its resources and denies access to authorized users, particularly affecting web hosting providers.
