Precise, scalable DDoS Protection

Zayo’s DDoS Protection proactively monitors for attacks against your IP traffic at the Zayo network edge. Then, taking advantage of the depth of our Tier 1 IP network, we mitigate attacks to the precision of a single IP address, allowing your critical applications to continue to flow unimpeded. 

We protect more than just your website. We protect your network. Zayo’s DDoS Protection filters malicious traffic at Zayo’s peering edge before the attack reaches your network. When needed, we redirect attack traffic to our global scrubbing centers, returning only clean traffic to you. Zayo’s DDoS Protection shields your network and lets you focus on your business.

Cost-effective security

Avoid unpredictable costs from attack traffic bandwidth spikes with monthly subscription options and protect all of your Zayo IP services at any location, anywhere on Zayo’s Tier 1 network, with one single DDoS Protection service.

Protection made easy

Because we don’t rely on GRE tunnels, Zayo’s DDoS Protection eliminates an added level of vulnerability — protecting you against GRE Bypass attacks while mitigating configuration complexities.

We make it easy for you to stay protected — there’s no network reconfiguration or downtime needed. Only a list of your IP addresses is required to activate service.
