Flood Shield is a comprehensive cloud-based DDoS protection service that delivers fast, simple, and effective DDoS protection to ensure the stability of your origin against distributed denial of service attacks (such as SYN Flood, ACK Flood, UDP Flood, HTTP Flood, etc.) in real time and simultaneously provides an acceleration service to legitimate users to optimize the user experience. This solution functions as a shield to ensure the stability and reliability of online services and infrastructures.
Flood Shield is deployed on CDNetworks’ huge global infrastructure with data centers in the USA, Europe, Asia, and mainland China. With over 12 global DDoS scrubbing centers and 15Tbps of total capacity, it is designed to protect websites and network infrastructures against even the most sophisticated and large-scale volumetric attacks.
Flood Shield provides visibility into all your DDoS attacks and cyber attacks and threats with comprehensive and intuitive security dashboards. The dashboards display a summary of information about Layer 3/4 and Layer 7 attacks that have been detected by CDNetworks Flood Shield.
The information data is automatically updated in near real-time when significant attacks happen, which includes DDoS attack bandwidth, attack IP list, attack map, attack types and count, etc. You can use the data to better understand attack trends, and come up with the right strategies to quickly optimize your network security to combat DDoS threats in the future.
Flexible PricingWe provide flexible pricing models that are designed in accordance with your risk profile, allowing you to pay in the most effective way that suits your business’s needs. There are unlimited mitigation and elastic mitigation plans that you can choose based on your budget.
Cloaked Origin IPWe help increase your server security by completely hiding your origin server’s real IP address. As a result, the attackers are unable to identify your origin IP to directly attack your origin server. In addition, we also provide you with our global PoPs’ IP to add to the whitelist to block any unnecessary requests, further increasing the security level.

How our DDoS Protection Services Work
Flood Shield DDoS deflection technology is deployed on CDNetworks’ distributed Points-of-Presence (PoPs). It is a cloud-based “always-on” mitigation service with virtually unlimited capacity. It does not require sophisticated deployments and changes to customers’ networks and provides transparent scaling automation.
Flood Shield is provided either via a simple DNS change, typically to protect websites, HTTP/S traffic and entire network infrastructures, including multiple domains, servers, and protocols. With the customer traffic routed through CDNetworks’ PoPs, DDoS attacks hit the CDNetworks infrastructure rather than the customers’ servers and networks. CDNetworks’ PoPs detect and deflect both application-layer attacks (L7) and all known types of network-layer attacks (L3/L4).
