My network infrastructure spans an entire subnet. Can SNAPI Guard protect it?

Yes. SNAPI Guard’s Infrastructure Protection service is specifically designed to protect all elements of your mission-critical infrastructure across entire subnet ranges. Leveraging border gateway protocol (BGP) routing, this on-demand service provides blanket DDoS protection for all types of environments such as, amongst others, UDP/TCP, SMTP, FTP, SSH and VoIP. BGP routing also protects against “origin attacks”, whereby an attacker might otherwise be able to launch a DDoS attack directly to your web server IP address without the use of DNS resolution.

This service works in the following manner: in the event of an attack, traffic is re-routed through SNAPI Guard’s cloud-based scrubbing units. From this point on, SNAPI Guard acts as your Internet service provider and advertises all protected IP range announcements. Incoming network traffic is inspected and filtered, and only legitimate traffic is securely forwarded to your network via generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunnelling.
