Logistics industry is a very delicate structure that depends on IT 100%, so when hackers do cyber-battle, there isn’t much to see. Maybe you’ll wind up on a crashed website, but the real carnage is happening behind the scenes, perpetrated by a diffuse army of computers a world away.

As you can pretty clearly see above, the DDoS attack force completely bombards the site with traffic at one specific checkpoint, leaving other legitimate requests to bounce away unfulfilled as the server struggles to keep its head above water.

AFILogistics will join its web-services with Google Project Shield :


Project Shield is an initiative to use Google’s infrastructure to protect free expression online. The service currently combines Google’s DDoS mitigation technologies and Page Speed Service (PSS), which allow websites to serve their content through Google to be better protected from DDoS attacks.

Project Shield is currently invite-only, and seeking additional “trusted testers”. Organizations with sites serving media, elections and human rights related content are invited to apply using the form below. Please find more information about the initiative here.
