DoS and DDoS Protection

Maxihost's DDoS protection technology is pioneer in Brazil. We detect and block attacks without affecting your Cloud or Dedicated server.


About DoS and DDoS attacks

DoS (Denial of Service) or DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks occur when one or more different virus or trojan infected computers simultaneously attack a single target. These attacks are iniciated by a hacker through commands sent to these computers. Usually, the targeted service or website get parcially or totally offline and can’t be brought back online until the attack is ended or an effective solution is installed to mitigate it.

DDoS Client

Maxihost Powered Protection

Our proprietary solution for preventing and mitigating attacks.

  • Why Maxihost's DDoS protection

    Our protection services are included in all of our services inside our data center, and in case your website or application is in a different environment, it’s still possible to hire our protection services. From the moment your protection is installed, our appliances start to analyze all traffic, segregating malicious from legitimate.

  • Protection for Websites

    All you have to do is point your DNS to Maxihost, and through our reverse proxy, we redirect all HTTP/SSL requests to your original server. The visible IP to the internet, and to the hacker, will be ours. Malicious packets will be discarded and all clean traffic directed to your website.

  • Protection for Servers

    Hosted applications inside our Cloud and Dedicated Servers that need protection against these threats are installed in an exclusive and prepared network.

  • Protection for Networks

    Integrate your ISP with Maxihost’s network and keep your servers protected from attacks. Connection made possible through GRE tunnel, physically in of Maxihost’s points of present our via PTT-Metro.

* When the IP exceeds the attack limit, it automatically goes into null-route for 120 minutes, making it unavailable for national or international access, according to the origin of the attack.

* International attacks are those coming from outside Brazil, and national attacks are the ones coming from within the Brazilian territory.
