If your organization has ever suffered through a Distributed Denial-of-Service attack, we know your pain — a disruptive DDoS attack can break your ability to serve your customers. As a Tier-1 Internet provider, we’re committed to protecting our customers from the threat of disruption and downtime from a DDoS attack. Our in-line, network-based DDoS Protection capability gives you a new way to protect every Zayo IP address from attack with a single subscription. We deliver:

DDoS defense that isn’t dependent on appliances and doesn’t require specialized skills.

Exceptional speed of response and capacity to defend against the largest attacks.

Instant-on, always-on protection that’s actively monitored by our Security Operations Center.

Running any business on the Internet without DDoS protection is a risk, and you have to ask yourself if it's one worth taking. Anna Claibourne SVP of Packet and Product Software Engineering

Defend Against Downtime and Disruption

Whether you’re leading technology initiatives for a mid-sized organization or managing cybersecurity for an enterprise, many organizations like yours have learned that our DDoS Protection can save them from service disruption, security risks, and the costs of mitigating an attack. Our approach gives you:

Powerful Performance

Some DDoS Protection technologies don’t have enterprise-class performance or require manual intervention, but Zayo’s product is different. It’s automated and defends your organization at the peering edge with millisecond response time and massive capacity. We can protect against multi-terabyte simultaneous attacks.

Ready Resilience

We offer faster, more complete, single IP-level DDoS redirection that’s always-on, instant-on, and can be activated by our Customer Security Operations Center in moments. We combine Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Flowspec and deep packet inspection (DPI) to save your business from disruption and disaster, cutting network downtime from days to a few seconds.

Exceptional Value

We’re a single subscription for your IP addresses, we require no appliances and no specialized skills. We support multiple carriers and our standard pricing is less expensive than our competition. The average cost of a DDoS attack to businesses is $30,000 every hour. Zayo offers a variety of DDoS subscriptions between Standard, Advanced, and Multi-Carrier to meet your protection requirements.

Instead of going down for an hour, we may see the network drop for three seconds, which is much more manageable for the teachers and principals than the hour we were dealing with. Billy Russell Technology Director at North Judson-San Pierre Schools
