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. Simultaneously it also provides an acceleration service to legitimate users to optimize the overall customer 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 20 global DDoS scrubbing centers and 15Tbps of total capacity, it is designed to protect websites, web apps, and network infrastructures against even the most sophisticated and large-scale volumetric attacks.
We 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.
We 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.
CDNetworks provides a comprehensive multi-layered security solution that covers DDoS protection, Web Application Firewall (WAF), API security and gateway, Bot management and specific attack deflection modules, to protect your service and applications. By using our single portal for multiple products, you can save significantly on maintenance costs while simplifying operations for your team.

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).
