What is a DDoS Protection System

A DDoS system works by dynamically routing traffic from an instance when an attack is detected. Attack detection is fully automated based on proprietary detection algorithms filtering attack traffic while clean traffic can reach the servers.

How Can Ottomatic Help?

Ottomatic’s native DDoS mitigation system adds an extra layer of protection to keep our hosting infrastructure online and operating even when it is the target of attacks. We can secure our instances from DDoS attacks in minutes with automatic DDoS mitigation services, which are available in all our worldwide locations. The system monitors network traffic and routes malicious activity to the Attack Mitigation Farm (AMF) after a DDoS event is detected, generally within 60 seconds.

Ottomatic’s native DDoS mitigation system protects our instances without increased latency or routing our traffic to a third party. DDoS protection adds 10Gbps of mitigation capacity per instance and safeguards all attached IPv4 addresses. We are currently working on bringing this up to 25Gbps.


When a DDoS attack is detected, incoming traffic is re-routed to our Attack Mitigation Farm which filters traffic based on specific attributes of the current attack. Clean traffic is tunneled directly to the server in the same data center, ensuring that no packets ever leave our premium low-latency network as one might typically encounter with a 3rd party DDoS mitigation service provider.


The DDoS protection works against Layer 3 and Layer 4 attacks, protecting against both TCP and UDP attacks. This coverage is available in all worldwide locations.

DDoS mitigation is only performed for our IP addresses. Additionally, Ottomatic’s general IP space is eligible for automated temporary null-route protection if an attack exceeds specific heuristics.
