Although DoS attacks are not a recent phenomenon, the methods and resources available to conduct and mask such attacks have dramatically evolved to include distributed (DDoS) and distributed reflector (DRDoS) attacks that cannot be addressed by traditional on-premise solutions.
Cloudflare's advanced DDoS protection at the network edge matches the sophistication and scale of such threats, and can be used to mitigate DDoS attacks of all forms and sizes including those that target the UDP and ICMP protocols, as well as SYN/ACK, DNS amplification and Layer 7 attacks.

- Layer 3/4 attacks;
- ACK attacks;
- DNS amplification attacks;
