It took a lot of time for vistnet to detect the DDOS attacks and they finally figured out the way in detecting those attack carrying packets and then they spent quite a lot of time in finding the solutions to exclude these attacks from the traffic. Though their hard work surely paid off when they created a mechanism that allows protection against the DDOS attacks permanently.
Vistnet has created a shield of POP’s that are also called the points of presence, these points of presence contains certain IP addresses called the protected Ip addresses. At POP, special hardware is installed that takes care bad traffic and detects the sign and traces of DDOS attacks, these Points of presence basically filters all the bad traffic that moves towards the servers.
When you register on their website, at the backend they mail you the protected IP address and the instructions for the configuration procedures. These POPS constantly remain at war with the DDOS attacks and they make sure that none of the DDOS carrying packets move up to the server. Though precautions are taken and software is installed at the server end that provides you yet another traffic control zone. It doesn’t filter the traffic but in case of DDOS attacks this software communicates with POPs, which does the remaining work.
Vistnet has surely gathered a lot of buzz as their services are being used and appreciated, this makes sure that the organization is reliable and so are their services and software products.
