Introducing disBalancer: Decentralized DDoS Protection

Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks are one of the largest security concerns for internet-based businesses, with the cost to small and medium-sized enterprises reaching an average of $120,000 per attack in lost revenue, data, and reputation.

DDoS attacks work by overwhelming a website with a flood of traffic generated from malware-infected devices. The attack quickly breaches the server capacity of the host target, causing regular visitors to be met with a denial-of-service error. Such attacks can also act as cover for data infiltration and theft, taking advantage of the misdirection and leading to even greater losses. Implementing robust DDoS protection measures is therefore vital for modern businesses.

While insurance policies are now available to cover the liability risk of such attacks, compensating for losses, they don’t stop the attacks in the first place, and the damage in terms of public relations and future revenue potential is already done. Now, there’s a way to leverage the unused computing power that fuels these attacks against them — enter disBalancer.

Fight Fire With Fire

In a market first, the disBalancer network will allow businesses that previously could not afford adequate protection or those that overpay for services they infrequently use, to access a cheaper alternative where they only pay for what they need.

Decentralized and Incentivized Solution

If a business then wants to use the solution, it simply adds network nodes to its DNS records, and all traffic starts circulating behind the nearest ones available. Each node can then redirect traffic to others nearby to increase capacity as required. This decentralized network can therefore circulate the load and traffic, solving denial-of-service problems.

Two-Phase Roadmap

The goal of the second phase is to fully refine the network so that it becomes commercially viable on a large scale. disBalancer will then be capable of serving thousands of sites simultaneously in the run-up to full launch.
