DDoS Mitigation with Anti-DDoS Premium

For users who have business servers deployed outside the mainland China, Alibaba Cloud provides the Anti-DDoS Premium service to mitigate DDoS attacks.

1. Global DDoS Mitigation

Anti-DDoS Premium integrates capacities of all Alibaba Cloud scrubbing centers over the world as protection resources by using Anycast technology. With distributed technology, Anti-DDoS Premium automatically diverts DDoS attack traffic to the nearest scrubbing center to the attacking source for mitigation.

2. Unlimited Protection

Anti-DDoS Premium provides unlimited protection with full capacity to each user by comprehensively utilizing global near-source mitigation abilities.
In 2018, the total protection capacity of Alibaba Cloud International Anti-DDoS scrubbing centers increases to over 2 Tbps. Anti-DDoS Premium aims to defend against every single DDoS attack for you.

Please note that Alibaba Cloud keeps rights of actions when attacks against your business impact the infrastructure of Alibaba Cloud International Anti-DDoS scrubbing centers. Once the actions are triggered on your Anti-DDoS Premium instance, your protected business may be affected. The action includes but not limited to “black hole” of the IP addresses being attacked, or alteration to the routing of the traffic destined to the IP addresses being attacked.

3. Dedicated IP Resource

Anti-DDoS Premium provides a dedicated Anycast IP for each user. Each IP is isolated to avoid any impact by DDoS attacks against other users. This provides you a safer DDoS mitigation service.

4. Security Report

Anti-DDoS Premium provides detail traffic report and attack protection report in real time for you to have a clear view on the security of your business.

Advanced mitigation and Plans of Anti-DDoS Premium

Integrating all mitigation capacities of Alibaba Cloud Anti-DDoS scrubbing centers around the world, Anti-DDoS Premium defends against all DDoS attacks to secure your business.

In most cases, the chances of being attacked decrease significantly after you have successfully defended against DDoS attacks using the Anti-DDoS service. Typically, attackers launch DDoS attacks to cause financial losses to your business.

1. Insurance Plan

Each month, Anti-DDoS Premium Insurance Plan offers two advanced mitigations by default, featuring unlimited mitigation capabilities. This protects your businesses against DDoS attacks with full capacity within 24 hours after an attack has been detected, and consumes one advanced mitigation. The number of advanced mitigations is reset to two at the beginning of every month during the service period.

For example, a protected IP suffers DDoS attacks at 11:20:00 (UTC+8), September 12, and an advanced mitigation is triggered. Within 24 hours, Anti-DDoS Premium provides unlimited mitigation capacities for this IP. The protected IP suffers another DDoS attack at 18:50:00 (UTC+8), September 13, and an advanced mitigation is triggered again. 24 hours later, the advanced mitigation stops and the two advanced mitigation of the Anti-DDoS Premium Insurance Plan instance in September are exhausted. The number of advanced mitigations is automatically reset to two at the beginning of the following month, October 1.

Insurance Plan is a basic solution of Anti-DDoS Premium and applies to users who are less vulnerable to attacks.

Only when the DDoS attack against your business exceeds a specific threshold, namely the basic mitigation threshold, will the advanced mitigation of Anti-DDoS Premium be enabled.
