Belnet DDoS Mitigation offers your organisation tailored protection against DDoS attacks

The purpose of DoS or DDoS attacks is to disable your website, server or network. In particular, organisations with a critical IT infrastructure are often victims, such as banks, Internet service providers or hospitals. DDoS attacks have increased steadily in frequency in recent years. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing our schools, work and social life onto the Internet, they have increased considerably in number and scale. In Q1 2020, there were almost twice as many DDoS attacks compared to Q1 2019.

Belnet uses Belnet Advanced Mail Security to improve the security of your e-mail traffic

E-mail security is crucial, given that the vast majority of all malware is installed via e-mail attachments. E-mail is also the most commonly used gateway for ransomware. This is why Belnet decided earlier this year to replace ‘Antispam Pro’ with a more advanced e-mail security platform. To this end, it entered into a partnership with Fortinet, one of the market leaders in the field of security.
