Build Protective Barriers
Defend your website against a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. A DDoS attack is when a hacker tries to take a website offline by sending it so much traffic, that it overwhelms your system. It’s basically a traffic jam that prevents wanted visitors from getting to your site, by overcrowding the system. When DDoS attacks take your site offline, you could be missing out on thousands of dollars of business per hour.
A DDoS protection server fights excess and unwanted traffic. Firefly Marketing uses a content delivery network (CDN) which essentially saves a recent copy of your website on multiple servers that are spread out geographically. That way, when a server is attacked, traffic is rerouted to a different server experiencing a lighter load. This system also acts as a middleman and blocks unwanted traffic from getting to your website.
We also practice server hardening, in which we implement numerous security controls. We make sure that your website follows leading industry standards when configuring servers. This includes, but is not limited to, using firewalls, SSH key pairs, and intrusion detection. These trusted practices add up to an additional layer of strengthened protection.
