A business using Astaro’s protection can keep this damaging stream from impacting them directly and causing damage to their machines. Resources such as Web and Mail Servers are frequent targets of attacks that want to cripple them by sending many requests or large amounts of data which “Deny” them the ability to serve up other requests to valid users.

This type of Denial of Service (DoS) attack can bring down a server, even damaging it in the process, while making the Internet unavailable to employees trying to work.
