Google Anti DDoS Weapon - Project Shield

Google has begun testing a new distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection service, codenamed Project Shield, to help fight back against this growing cyber threat facing digital businesses. Google confirmed Project Shield is currently running on a trial basis and is open for use on an invite-only basis. "Project Shield is an initiative to expand Google's own distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation capabilities to protect free expression online. The service is currently invite-only. We are accepting applications from websites serving news, human rights or elections-related content." The service works using a variety of existing Google technologies, the firm explained: "Project Shield is a service that currently combines Google's DDoS mitigation technologies and Page Speed Service (PSS) to allow individuals and organisations to better protect their websites by serving their content through Google's own infrastructure, without having to move their hosting locations." <more>
