Stay Up and Running. No Matter What.

Downtime is no longer an inconvenience. It can do serious harm to your brand, your productivity and your bottom line. Every minute your network is down is a minute you can’t connect with colleagues, customers or partners.

That’s why distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks must be prevented. And Level 3 can help.

With Level 3 DDoS Mitigation, we provide network-based, "always-on" and on-demand protection with 24 x 7 monitoring.


Scrubbing center mitigation techniques alone are not designed to manage today’s highly sophisticated and distributed attacks. You need to deploy a multi-layered security approach backed by extensive threat research to defend against a variety of attack types.

Only network-based DDoS mitigation solutions can provide realistic protection to enterprise resources. Let Level 3 help you quickly identify and mitigate the latest threats, so you stay connected – no matter what.
