Shield to protect against DDoS attacks

WorldStream has launched its next-generation anti-DDoS platform, WorldStream DDoS Shield. WorldStream R&D and the company’s network-team have worked on the DDoS scrubbing center for a year in total. The result is an anti-DDoS platform equipped with intelligent clustering techniques and a multi-tiered architecture to address the growth of sophisticated DDoS threats.


After more than tripling the size of its R&D department from 3 to 10 engineering employees recently, global IaaS technology provider WorldStream has now released its completely redesigned and re-engineered DDoS mitigation platform, WorldStream DDoS Shield. The new anti-DDoS scrubbing center is located in WorldStream’s company-owned data centers in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands, and equipped with the latest techniques in the field of clustering. By deploying an intelligent clustering technology with a multi-tiered architecture, WorldStream now expects its DDoS scrubbing center to be ‘future-proof’ and able to withstand the largest DDoS attacks as well as advanced ‘under the radar’ attacks for its clients.

“DDoS can be seen as a significant risk for enterprises and virtually all organizations with business-critical applications,” said Nick de Jong, Sales Director of WorldStream. “We’ve seen some very serious DDoS attacks on various types of organizations during the last couple of years, large and small, including high-profile financial brands such as ING, ABN AMRO, and Banco de España. We saw well-known global developer platform GitHub experiencing one of the largest DDoS attacks in history, with an attack peaking at 1.35Tbps. And most recently, in June of this year, messaging service platform Telegram was shut down by a massive DDoS attack. As WorldStream is providing IaaS hosting services to quite some high-profile customers including broadcasters and cloud providers, we want our DDoS scrubbing center to be fully prepared for the latest DDoS developments and trends. The fact that the WorldStream DDoS Shield is now fitted with intelligent clustering technology and a multi-tiered approach to DDoS protection will bring our customers ultimate safety and piece of mind.”
