Chart Key
Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews
Number of total page views
Number of times compared to another product
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is DDoS?

DDoS solutions are an ever-evolving and highly specialized area of network protection, now a necessity for large organizations to provide 24/7 essential, unmitigated protection. The top DDoS Protection solutions mitigate the threat of a Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS). DDoS refers to illegally targeting computer resources to cripple user accessibility and/or completely shut down a computer or computer system. In a DDoS attack, the malicious actor typically hijacks multiple computing resources and sets them to send so many service requests to the target device or network that it cannot sustain the volume and shuts down.

Targets and motives can be varied. The best DDoS solutions are usually intended to permanently take down a website, cause sufficient downtime or disable a service. The perpetrators or Bad Actors can be lone wolf hackers, terrorist organizations, and criminals with various motivations or even business competitors.

IT and DevOps experts know that in order to fight DDoS attacks, special systems and training are essential to keep their systems safe. A large organization will utilize high-capacity, secure and stable Internet channels, specialized software solutions and the most recent technology and hardware.

Well-informed IT and InfoSec specialists require the best integrative technical support to engage and align the services of network security companies, which concentrate on the development and distribution of round-the-clock DDoS Protection. The key, of course, is proactivity. This requires a financial investment, sometimes a substantial one to protect information, assets, and personnel. Global security services often cite what could have been a relatively reasonable financial investment in DDoS Protection before millions had to be spent trying to restore and save sometimes irretrievable or compromised data in a system takedown.

In order to react to critical alarms and attempted system break-ins with actionable solutions, an IT Department must have instant information, pre-arranged permissions and communications across all platforms. IT must be supported by the most updated resources on a daily basis, in spite of organizational boundaries and silos that may impede communications between areas that would crash and fall like dominos without full, internal cooperation. DDoS Protection providers have core competencies and protecting both mobile and web platforms are non-negotiable. Revenue streams, critical data, personal information and essential connections to the “outside world” can all be eliminated or abused without DDoS solutions.
