Security, the OVH way
Guaranteeing the security and durability of our customers' online applications has always been a priority for OVH. Over the years, we have experimented with ways of anticipating, managing and counteracting these problems. As such we have been able to develop intelligent and robust tools capable of handling massive attacks. This tools features on our ranges of dedicated servers and Cloud products.
These tools have been adapted and transferd over to other products which required them, such as our Web Hosting services. Previously, we often had to suspend websites flooded with requests, in order to prevent the situation from damaging the entire service and affecting other customers.
To counter these attacks, OVH has now integrated a mitigation solution based on VAC technology. It's an exclusive combination of techniques which analyse your traffic in real time and at high speed. They detect and intercept attacks automatically, while letting legitimate requests pass through. In addition, the load balancing is even better with the introduction of PHP-FPM, enabling improved server responsiveness. As a result, there is no longer any risk of the service being saturated.
