A botnet (a network of devices infected with malware) is used for DDoS attacks, spam, viruses and illegally obtaining users’ personal data. Unwanted activity gives providers a lot of trouble:
- hacking devices connected to the network;
- network overload;
- IP blocking.
Mini-Firewall as a VAS Experts DPI option solves at least two problems:
- preventing subscribers hacking on open ports which may be attacked;
- blocking harmful activity outgoing from a subscriber.
