Enhanced DDoS Auto-Mitigation Protection

If you are a current MCNC Internet service client, consider enrolling in MCNC’s Enhanced DDoS Auto-Mitigation free of charge for maximum protection.

When Auto-Mitigation is enabled and a DDoS attack is detected, the impacted traffic flow will be directed into one of MCNC’s DDoS scrubbing centers automatically, allowing attack mitigation to begin within a few seconds of attack detection. Once the attack has subsided, traffic flow will automatically return to its normal path on the network. To subscribe or get more information, see the FAQ for more details on Auto-Mitigation.
