Today’s DDoS-as-a-service and politically motivated DDoS cyber attacks are more powerful than ever. Even worse, DoS and DDoS denial of service hacktivists are using increasingly sophisticated attack signatures that overcome the capabilities of most hosting services and content delivery networks – but not VirtualRoad.org.

VirtualRoad.org safely hosts independent news media and human rights web sites whose freedom of expression is threatened in their home countries. It’s a tough job, because politically motivated DDoS hacktivists target these websites with increasingly large and complex application Layer 7 DDoS attacks and DNS server attacks.

Even though its clients’ web sites continue to be DDoS hacktivism targets due to the nature of their content, they are far less vulnerable to being taken down or disrupted because VirtualRoad.org’s DDoS protection services are backed by Prolexic.

Excerpt

“The frequency and scale of the DDoS attacks were growing to a point where they were driving away audiences from our clients’ sites. Our clients were finding it very difficult to survive online in this increasingly hostile environment, and we knew we needed to ramp up our DDoS mitigation services. Our partnership with Prolexic is now a crucial element of the mitigation services we roll out to our clients.”

Protect your organization from DoS and DDoS attacks. In this case study you’ll learn how VirtualRoad.org and its clients faced DDoS attacks and fought back with the help of Prolexic. DDoS attacks end here.
