Microsoft prevent DDOS Attack, One of the common ways we’ve seen how hackers attack online services is through a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. This is essentially where the attacker sends a massive spike of data through the servers in an attempt to overwhelm it and force it to crash, which in turn will cause outages for users using the service.

In a recent blog post on Microsoft’s Azure website, he company detailed how they actually managed to fend off one of the largest DDoS attacks ever recorded, where one of their Azure customers was hit with a 2.4Tbps attack attempt. According to Microsoft, this is one of the largest attacks they’ve recorded, where the previous record holder was 1Tbps, meaning that this latest attempt is 140% higher.

In a way this post is Microsoft trying to highlight the security and stability of its Azure servers, so while it is impressive they managed to thwart the attack, it’s clear that Microsoft is trying to show it has the chops necessary to help maintain its servers and services despite massive attacks on it.

According to Microsoft, “However, Azure’s DDoS protection platform, built on distributed DDoS detection and mitigation pipelines, can absorb tens of terabits of DDoS attacks. This aggregated distributed mitigation capacity can massively scale to absorb the highest volume of DDoS threats, providing our customers the protection they need.”
