Enhanced DDoS Protection
As part of any Internet connection, a robust DDoS protection service is essential, which is why MCNC provides this service free of charge to all its clients that subscribe to MCNC’s Internet service.
On NCREN, MCNC’s backbone network, traffic is continually monitored for indicators of DDoS attacks. When an attack is detected, network traffic can be diverted into the nearest scrubbing center, where traffic can be analyzed and cleaned.
DDoS attack traffic is removed from the flow, allowing legitimate network traffic to continue on to its destination. The scrubbing centers remove the bad traffic and allow the good traffic to continue on to the client, ensuring that business services function normally while minimizing the negative impact of the DDoS attack.
