  • “Cloud-based, best-in-class” managed DDoS mitigation and Web Application Firewall protection
  • Unlimited protection with multiple geographically dispersed DDoS mitigation centers offering 1Tbps total capacity

That’s where Cogeco Peer 1‘s DDoS Shield product, now with AppArmor, comes in. Together, they deliver a powerful DDoS security solution.”
