DDoS Testing Services

Realistic DDoS attack simulations to help you prepare for the worst. Babble’s DDoS Testing services help businesses to reduce their risk of attack, protect their websites and servers from outages, and improve their DDoS resilience.

In today’s digital world, no business is immune to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. The growing availability of DDoS-for-hire services, and the rise in unsecured Internet of Things (IoT) devices are heightening this risk. The impact of a DDoS attack can be devastating, resulting in lost revenue, reputation damage, and compliance violations.

That’s why it’s so important to be prepared. Babble’s DDoS Testing services can help you assess your defenses and identify any vulnerabilities before they’re exploited by attackers.

DDoS Testing: How it Works

Our world-class team of DDoS experts will work with you to develop a customised test plan that simulates a variety of attack scenarios. We’ll then launch the attack from our globally distributed botnet to see how your infrastructure and mitigation systems respond.

The State of DDoS Attacks

Key Benefits

Validate Mitigation Investment 

DDoS mitigation systems can be expensive, so it’s important to make sure that they are working as expected. Simulating a DDoS attack can help you to validate your investment and identify any areas where your mitigation systems need to be improved. You want to ensure you’re spending money in the right ways.

Identify Weaknesses 

Simulating a DDoS attack can help identify weaknesses in your network and infrastructure. For example, you may find that certain servers or applications are more vulnerable to attack than others. You can then use this information to strengthen your defenses and make it more difficult for attackers to succeed.

Inform Business Risk and Compliance 

The results of your DDoS simulation can inform your business risk and compliance assessments. For example, if you are in a regulated industry, you may be required to demonstrate having adequate DDoS protection in place. Simulating a DDoS attack can provide evidence of the effectiveness of your mitigation systems.

Prepare For the Event of An Attack 

Simulating a DDoS attack can help you to prepare for the event of a real attack. By understanding how your network and infrastructure will respond, you can develop more effective incident response procedures. This will help you to minimise the impact of an attack and quickly get your systems back up and running.

Protect Revenues and Reputation

A DDoS attack can have a devastating impact on your business, resulting in lost revenue and reputation damage. Simulating a DDoS attack within your business can help you to avoid this by enabling you to identify and fix any vulnerabilities in your network and infrastructure, and to optimise your DDoS mitigation systems.

Securing Upstream Services 

Internet services providers (ISPs) and providers do not always test their own DDoS mitigation capabilities. Many customers make assumptions about their provider’s capability to assist. This may mean the ISP or hosting company cannot provide the level of protection required, and a DDoS test would confirm this.

Expert Services and Consultancy

Babble is the perfect partner for any business that needs help with DDoS testing, consultancy, professional services, or training. Our team of experts have a deep understanding of DDoS threats and mitigation strategies and offer a wide range of experience working with businesses of all sizes and in all industries.

The first step is for us to assess your current DDoS readiness posture. This includes understanding your network infrastructure, mitigation systems, and incident response plans.

Once we has a good understanding of your current situation, we can then develop a customised set of recommendations for improving your DDoS readiness.

We help implement these recommendations. This may include configuring DDoS mitigation systems, or testing your incident response plan for example.

Client Testimonials

Clients we have helped

We learnt a huge amount as a result of doing the DDoS test simulation. It was better doing this in a controlled manner instead of waiting until we are hit for real. We now understand a lot more about our systems and our people have gained useful experience, which has only improved our readiness for a real attack.”

Mark Dawson- Head of Service Assurance, The British Library

Babble was very thorough in the scoping of the project and the way they conducted themselves was very professional. We greatly benefited from the test and the confirmation that our deployments carried minimal risk even when under significant load.

Head of Information SecurityLeading DNS Provider

Almost immediately it was discerned that no mitigation alerts were being sent and the ISP did not detect the attack. Now armed with the DDoS test results and a comprehensive report we have a good baseline for more targeted simulations in a subsequent round of testing.

Our Most Asked Questions

Is DDoS testing and simulation legal?

Yes, DDoS testing is legal, but only if it is conducted with the permission of the target organisation. It is important to note that launching a DDoS attack without permission is a crime in many jurisdictions, including the UK.

What are the ethical considerations for DDoS testing?

There are a number of ethical considerations to bear in mind when conducting DDoS testing, including:

Obtaining authorisation from the target organisation: It is essential to obtain explicit permission from the target organisation before conducting a DDoS test. This can be done by having a purchase order in place or by having multiple customer stakeholders on a conference call during the attack.

Minimising collateral damage: DDoS tests can potentially disrupt other services and networks that are not the target of the attack. It is important to take steps to minimise collateral damage, such as by using a variety of attack vectors and by keeping the attack intensity below the target organisation’s contractual bandwidth level.

Using ethical tools and methods: It is important to use ethical tools and methods when conducting DDoS testing. This means avoiding tools and methods that could exploit vulnerabilities in the target organisation’s systems or that could cause permanent damage.

Where is the attack being launched from and what jurisdiction applies?

DDoS attacks can be launched from anywhere in the world. However, the jurisdiction in which the attack is launched will apply. This means that if you are a UK company and you are attacked by a DDoS attack that was launched from the US, then US law will apply.

How can I choose a reputable DDoS testing provider?

When choosing a DDoS testing provider, it is important to consider the following factors:

Experience: Choose a provider with experience in conducting DDoS tests on a variety of systems and networks.

Expertise: Choose a provider with a team of experts who have a deep understanding of DDoS attacks and mitigation strategies.

Reputation: Choose a provider with a good reputation in the industry. You can read online reviews or ask other businesses for recommendations.

What are the benefits of regular DDoS testing?

There are a number of benefits to regular DDoS testing, including:

Identify and fix vulnerabilities: DDoS testing can help you to identify and fix vulnerabilities in your systems and networks before they are exploited by attackers.

Optimise your DDoS mitigation systems: DDoS testing can help you to optimise your DDoS mitigation systems to ensure that they are effective against a variety of attack vectors.

Improve your incident response plan: DDoS testing can help you to improve your incident response plan so that you are better prepared to respond to a real-world DDoS attack.
