A clean pipe is a type of DDoS mitigation solution that protects against volumetric DDoS attacks. The clean pipe service blocks network flood attack traffic before it enters an organization’s network and ensures that the organisation’s services are available to their legitimate users.
The REDtone Clean Pipe service secures all backend network elements, including the origin of applications, network infrastructure and backend IPs typically associated with proxy solutions. It is highly suitable for organisations that cannot afford any downtime of assets running their own network
Implemented via tunneling and making use of BGP-anycast routing, REDtone Clean Pipe guards network resources against all volumetric and protocol-based DDoS attacks, such as UDP, SMTP and SYN floods.
How Does It Work?
All incoming traffic must pass through a cleaning center, also known as “scrubbing center”, where malicious traffic is identified and separated, permitting only legitimate traffic to get the server.
Features & Benefits
Allows for continuous processing of all incoming (asymmetric) and outgoing traffic (symmetric) in order to take immediate action
Enables a precise and speedy response to attacks via automatic mitigation and traffic policing
Remote DDoS Monitoring and Detection
Provides coverage for clients who lack DDoS detection capabilities with remote DDoS monitoring and detection
Secure GRE Tunnel
Forwards clean traffic to the Origin IP and returns outbound traffic from applications to users through a secure, two-way GRE tunnel
Ensures superior redundancy in mitigation
Preserves a significant number of IP addresses since the same pool is shared by multiple locations
Subnet and Individual IP Protection
Protects the entire Class C subnet as well as services and protocols running on individual IP addresses
