Get your servers tested and protected against Denial of Service attacks.
This service consists of a series of tests with the objective of verifying that the servers aren't susceptible to a denial of service attack. A window of time is defined during which, under complete supervision of the processes and resources, a wide range of different DoS attacks are performed.
The tests consist of the following:
1. Saturate the servers by sending a vast amount of requests to the web application.
2. Testing for DoS through the use of commercial tools.
3. Testing for DoS through the use of several public and private tools.
4. Testing for DoS based on the software and services running on the server.
Some of our tests include the same attacks and tools used by hacktivist group Anonymous. By using clients with connections to the Internet backbone, our Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) tests can be performed with up to 50,000 virtual users (200,000 virtual browsers), in which we show a visual geographic distribution of each unique connection made by the virtual users.
We additionally use other tools (both public and private), which in many cases can be more effective than the tools used by Anonymous.
Furthermore, we analyze the version of the software installed on the server to verify that there aren't any known vulnerabilities or faulty configurations that could result in a denial of service. In the event that a vulnerability of this kind was found on the server, it would be tested using the available proof of concept.
