In collaboration with Wallarm we have presented a report on network security in 2016. As a company with main focus on DDoS mitigation solutions we observed a few changes in the field during the last year.
Incidents related to Denial of Service attacks are again getting media attention. But now a proper attack may threaten availability of the whole regions. The problem again requires increased attention as if we went 57 years back in time.
Until the past year it could appear that the issue of DDoS was solved.
But power of attacks and their complexity rose significantly in 2016. In past even powerful 100300 Gbps attacks caused no real pain. Complex attacks on application layer protocols were rare. In 2016 the world saw 1 Tbit/s attacks for the first time, while attacks on the L7 layer became much more widespread.

Hence the VPN connecting the filtering network and the customer is an additional element increasing overall robustness of DDoS mitigation system.

Today one of the most reliable DDoS mitigation schemes is the algorithm directing all traffic to pass through a specialized network where it undergoes analysis and filtering, sending it over VPN directly to customer's network afterwards.
Under the terms of cooperation Qrator Labs and Circuit Exchange have already implemented several unique joint projects: so as to prevent hacker attacks, the traffic of the protected websites goes into the Qrator cloud and uses secure channels to reach customer's web infrastructure...
