The activeDEFENCE DDoS Testing platform provides organisations at risk of attack with a real-time, controlled DDoS attack simulation. The impact of a DDoS attack is far-reaching and can paralyze a business‘ operation with significant loss in revenues and company reputation. There is only one solution to mitigate these type of threats and that is realistic DDoS testing.
World-class DDoS attack simulation team at your service
activereach’s elite DDoS testing team prepare your business for advanced DDoS attacks, before and after they happen. Many organisations today are spending significant amounts of their security budget on DDoS mitigation systems, but cannot prove how reliable these systems are until they have been attacked. The activeDEFENCE DDoS testing platform will help alleviate any uncertainties by probing network vulnerabilities with advanced cybercrime scenarios and attack vectors.

activereach will walk you through a short customisation and verification procedure.
The DDOS simulation will be done at a time convenient for you with the activereach Testing team on the line real-time to guide you and highlight where the weaknesses in your network and servers are. Our DDoS Testing Services offer either a standard template test pattern for a simple 90 min baseline test or a more advanced bespoke test scenario that can last for up to 6 hours.
The activeDEFENCE DDoS Testing platform utilises a globally managed legitimate botnet that is capable of generating an extensive range of attack types. These can range from small DDoS attacks under 1Mbps to large multi-gigabit DDoS attacks that can scale up to in excess of 100Gbps. The Botnet does not use anonymous infected computers, but instead a global testing network using dedicated co-located and cloud-based servers to generate the traffic. Of course we can also do multiple tests concurrently, from separate botnets.
activereach will work with you to choose the optimal and most relevant DDoS attack simulation that can include the following layer 4 and layer 7 attacks:

“We learnt a huge amount as a result of doing the DDoS test simulation. It was better doing this in a controlled manner instead of waiting until we are hit for real. We now understand a lot more about our systems and our people have gained useful experience, which has only improved our readiness for a real attack. “
Mark DawsonHead of Service Assurance, The British Library
“Starting the test with a UDP based attack, almost immediately it was discerned that no mitigation alerts were being sent to us and as traffic levels increased it was apparent that no mitigation had been brought into play by our service provider. Thanks to activereach’s testing service, we are now getting the MSP protection that we paid for.“
Head of Operations, Dutch Retail Bank
“activereach was very thorough in the scoping of the project and the way they conducted themselves was very professional. We greatly benefited from the test and the confirmation that our deployments carried minimal risk even when under significant load.”
Head of Information Security, Leading DNS Provider
The DDoS Testing control dashboard provides our security engineers performing the test with the ability to define targets, set test type, set parameters, select attack agents and gather important test results.
