Gamers have zero tolerance for lags and jitters, not to mention downtime—the worst nightmare ever. But even a small, stealthy DDoS attack, which easily goes undetected, can cause noticeable latency and drive the players away. That said, Nexusguard has a solution for gaming service hosting providers to prevent these from happening.
With the rise of eSports and digital entertainment, it is obvious that gaming services have become a key revenue source for CSPs. Protecting them from cyberattacks is a must.
While latency is the most important parameter, other factors such as packet loss and delay variation (jitter) are also the criteria that gamers don’t compromise on.
Owing to the gaming industry’s hypercompetitive nature, strong profitability and players’ zero-tolerance for downtime, game hosting servers are, unfortunately, very attractive to DDoS attackers.
Rather than firing off a large volume of junk traffic, attackers now prefer using stealthy techniques to cause network crashes and session interruptions frequently.
Designed for game hosting service platforms, this multitenant solution not only protects the core network from increasingly stealthy attacks, but also enables the service provider to extend DDoS protection services to its gaming tenants.Learn More
