The application traffic intelligence and automation provider NS1 announced DDoS Overage Protection, which prevents unexpected cost increases in the event of usage spikes due to distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against NS1’s Managed DNS.

The number of DDoS attacks has jumped by 200% since last year and attack intensity grew by 300%. 

“Business resilience is synonymous with business success and this includes not only seamless operations but also cost control,” said Danielle Russell, director of product marketing at NS1. “Hundreds of innovative companies trust NS1 to keep them online, secure, and performant, even when facing large-scale attacks against infrastructure. Now with NS1’s DDoS Overage Protection, customers can also have peace of mind that they won’t be caught off guard by unexpected overage charges due to DDoS attacks. They can focus on their businesses without worrying about disruptions or costs.”

The latest security measure joins the lineup of other security features such as Dedicated DNS to make redundancy push-button easy and DNSSEC with online signing for security without compromise. 

NS1 offers technologies for cloud-native network services, edge-to-cloud networking, and application traffic optimization.
