Why was Deflect created?

  • The fundamental reason for Deflect’s creation came about because of this necessity: there is an urgent need for this service amongst individuals and groups who are under threat of cyberattacks yet are unable to afford commercial mitigation services.
  • Most DDoS attacks are rudimentary and can be mitigated by good technology. Many website administrators doing good work in potentially hazardous circumstances simply don’t have the time or resources to allocate for a dedicated technical team.
