AWS Shield is a managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service that safeguards applications running on AWS. AWS Shield provides always-on detection and automatic inline mitigations that minimize application downtime and latency, so there is no need to engage AWS Support to benefit from DDoS protection.
Today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing in size, frequency and complexity. No enterprise is immune to these threats. Application availability, website uptime and infrastructure accessibility are all critical for business continuity. Every minute of downtime can result in lost productivity and revenue. Scrubbing center mitigation techniques alone are not designed to manage today’s massive, highly sophisticated and distributed attacks. To defend against a variety of attack types, it’s essential to deploy a multi-layered security approach backed by extensive threat research. CenturyLink provides layers of defense through enhanced network routing, rate limiting and filtering that can be paired with advanced network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing center solutions. Our mitigation approach is informed by threat intelligence derived from visibility across our global infrastructure and data correlation. Tailored for any business and IT/security budget, our flexible managed service can proactively detect and mitigate the threats of today to help ensure business-as-usual for employees, partners and customers.
