Cloud integrated cybersecurity tools and services for DDoS mitigation
DDOS.NET is delivering the best cloud integrated cybersecurity tools and services that enable effective DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service Attack) defense strategies. A DDoS attack is when a network resource is flooded with traffic, often intentionally for malicious reasons, thus preventing legitimate users from accessing it.
He saw a clear need from his past business and consulting with engineers from Amazon’s market-leading AWS (Amazon Web Services) for expert level cloud mitigation, risk, and security tools that would bridge the gap between public and private defense strategies.
With DDOS.NET, we have created just that: real-time threat detection with personalized enterprise control.
The DDOS.NET beta launched in January 2016 and secured software architecture patents in May 2016. We’re currently in negotiations with beta test partners. How is DDOS.NET revolutionizing enterprise web security? Read on to find out!
Picture a DDoS attack like this:
- Null routing does not keep traffic flowing
- On-premise hardware is being replaced by cloud solutions of all types across all industries
- Hardware scrubbing is expensive and is only one component of the DDoS mitigation ecosystem
As enterprise cloud adoption continues to increase, there is significant opportunity to improve cloud-based security strategies that currently exist.
When customers move to the cloud they often lose capabilities that they once had with their own network. This occurs because the cloud provider is abstracting the network and is focused on automation and compute scaling. As a result, the customer cannot see the network as they once did and are trusting the cloud platform to deliver DDoS mitigation capabilities.
This same problem exists for customers who have not moved to the cloud but are using cloud-based DDoS mitigation services. They lose visibility into their traffic and are trusting a third party to detect attacks and deploy mitigation that will not interfere with normal traffic.
In our experience, we have found that customers want to drive their own DDoS mitigation and be in control of their own traffic. Additionally, customers want a specific guarantee of the architecture, capacity, and capability of the DDoS mitigation network and lose trust when this data is withheld, abstracted, or inflated.
This distinction is crucial as many networks optimize for incremental cost savings and efficient utilization of capacity which can limit the ability of the network operator to effectively mitigate larger DDoS attacks and inhibit performance for normal users. Enterprise buyers are astute, understand this distinction, and are looking for better solutions.
DDOS.NET is solving threat detection and automatic deployment of countermeasure challenges with largescale enterprise applications while bridging the gap between private and public cloud environments. Fully integrated with AWS, we provide a single overlay for total edge + origin protection, and assurance against the most dangerous threats.
AWS is the world’s largest cloud with over 1 million active customers, 81% YoY revenue growth, and 95% YoY compute growth. Gartner estimates that AWS has over 10 times the compute capacity of all other cloud providers combined. In 2012, Gigaom estimated that “virtually every Fortune 1000 company is running workloads beyond test and dev in Amazon’s cloud.” By tightly integrating and partnering with AWS, DDOS.NET will soon become the preferred DDoS mitigation service for enterprise applications.
Our focus at DDOS.NET is helping customers who operate large or complex applications in the cloud, at enterprise datacenters, and in hybrid environments. This includes enterprises and well-funded startups who are spending greater than $100,000 per month on cloud computing and datacenter services. DDoS mitigation should cost no greater than 10% of your total cloud/datacenter services.
The platform will be attractive to these customers due to our specialized focus and a cost structure that scales logarithmically. Our goal is to ensure that DDoS mitigation is not a technical or financial scaling limitation.
In other words, customers like Christian and Amir.
Christian runs engineering at a live streaming service provider that had more than 1.5 million broadcasters and 100 million visitors per month in 2015. 20% of his environments are within AWS, and 80% exist in private datacenters which they operate. Currently, no third party DDoS mitigation solution can address both environment types seamlessly. Also, detecting issues across environments is extremely time consuming and painful for Christian, resulting in customer impact and revenue/reputation loss. Christian is looking for a solution without millions of dollars in capital outlay or the requirement to outsource an entire security practice to a third party. DDOS.NET is the solution he’s been waiting for.
Amir is in charge of network and security at an entertainment development company which produces the best titles in video gaming and operates in dozens of countries. At least half of his infrastructure exists within AWS and they plan to continue to grow and increase this metric. Over the last
2 years, every title release has coincided with devastating attacks against their online service. They’ve tried on-premise solutions as well as third party networks. Amir is looking for something that integrates with their public cloud strategy as well as allows them to maintain visibility and control during these attacks. The perfect combination? DDOS.NET.
We launced the DDOS.NET beta in January 2016 but have remained in stealth mode until now. Over the past few months, we have initiated talks with two potential customers who have indicated they would pilot the beta and give feedback. We are currently negotiating Letters of Intent with a handful of multi-billion dollar companies. We intend to work with these firms to scope our product around the challenges they have and perfect the automatic response to threats.
We’re committed to continually making DDoS defense better. We have a very robust and thoughtful roadmap ahead, 90% of which comes from past customers and future customer’s feedback and wish lists.

Shawn previously co-founded Black Lotus Communications, one of the first to market DDoS mitigation network service providers. Over the venture, Shawn served as Network Engineer, VP of Operations, iCEO, and eventually Chief Security Officer before the company was acquired by Level 3 Communications in the summer of 2015.
Over the seven years at Black Lotus Communications, Shawn was at the forefront of the DDoS mitigation and defense field, having invented multiple new technologies that are now industry standards. His inventions have led to eight patents which are currently either pending, granted, or under prosecution.
One thing he and his team always wanted to do for their industry was build a platform like DDOS.NET. Customers and partners like Microsoft Azure, AWS, Twitch, Blizzard, Chevron, Dish Networks, and other have all asked for a solution exactly like DDOS.NET.
After a short break post-acquisition of Black Lotus, Shawn got together with one of his most trusted friends and engineers and we got back to work.
Robert is a startup swiss army knife. He was the Chief Solutions Developer at Black Lotus Communications. With over 15 years of experience in software development and 7 years in DDoS mitigation, he is listed as the inventor on over 7 patents in cybersecurity and DDoS mitigation.
He has personally developed automation tools that resulted in over 1.2 million automatic mitigations in 2014.
