In combination with a patent-pending process to auto-detect and auto-mitigate DDoS attacks, you’ll invest in the industry’s best DDoS protection solution – managed 24/7 by market-tested cybersecurity experts, overlooking our Security Operations Centers.

For more information on how to protect your applications and networks from attacks by DDoS and Cogeco Peer 1 services, please review the datasheets available in our Resource Gallery.

DDoS Shield for Unlimited DDoS Protection

The DDoS Shield service provides world-class security, including distributed denial of service (DDoS) prevention, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. It safeguards your applications and networks against known and pending network security threats such as:

  • Internet pipe saturation
  • Attacks on login pages
  • Attacks on Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)
  • SSL-based flood attacks

Cogeco Peer 1 enables our clients to share their latest DDoS attack information and mitigation techniques across their network. Additionally, Cogeco Peer 1 offers a common set of policies for all sites and hardware that run within the DDoS protection section of the FastFiber Network®.

DDoS Shield is a cloud based DDoS mitigation solution. Powered by the ZENEDGE platform, it provides always-on Layer 3 and 4 DDoS detection and prevention, ensuring the availability of your network when under attack. Each DDoS mitigation center in the Cogeco Peer 1 network is based on a Juniper MX480 routing platform and Arbor TMS mitigation platform for high capacity packet filtering.

DDoS CleanIP for Limited DDoS protection for single IPs or small subnets

Customers using our DDoS CleanIP solution are assigned protected IPs as needed. When necessary, these CleanIPs are used to migrate services over to the new protected CleanIP. Like our DDoS Shield service described above, CleanIPs are always on. They’re automatically routed through scrubbing centers using dedicated net blocks from within our DDoS Shield platform. At a low, affordable rate, this ensures that all incoming traffic, delivered through CleanIPs, comes from legitimate users.

DDoS CleanBGP for Limited DDoS protection for BGP based colocation and transit customers

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a standardized exterior gateway protocol designed to exchange routing and reachability information among systems on the internet.

With DDoS CleanBGP, traffic is routed through the current network configuration using BGP advertisements as normal day-to-day, paying only for attacks when needed. Using BGP community tagging, the customer communicates network advertisements to and from our DDoS Shield scrubbing centers.

For clients using BGP services, such as our colocation and transit customers, DDoS Shield can be deployed in a consumption model. This allows our customers to route their traffic through the DDoS Shield protected space as needed.
