"DDoS protection will not cause costs or prices to increase and will be available to all customers. Our system will detect DDoS attacks at all times, and its ability to recognize them will continually improve. Once an attack is recognized, the dynamic DDoS protection tools will immediately go into action and will filter out the attack. Your traffic will usually not be affected by the DDoS protection system due to its dynamic method of mitigating attacks. "
