Clean Pipe

A clean pipe is a partial DDoS mitigation solution for online businesses and mission critical websites that require real-time protection against volumetric DDoS attacks. The primary goal of this anti-DDoS protection solution is to block volumetric attack traffic before it enters an organization's data pipe, enabling web services to remain available for legitimate users. Without such protection, a large volume DDoS attack can clog an organization's Internet pipe, consuming all of its available bandwidth. In order to maintain a clean pipe, all traffic must pass through a cleaning center or "scrubbing center" where malicious traffic is identified and separated allowing only legitimate traffic to get to the server.
