NaWas – the not-for-profit National Scrubbing Center against DDoS attacks

A DDoS attack. I’m sure you’d rather not think about it. But you really should think about it very carefully. You could buy the hardware yourself to effectively detect and mitigate an attack, or you could take the smarter approach: as an NBIP participant, you will have access to our NaWas service as and when you need it.


Cost efficient and powerful

The NBIP developed NaWas together with DHPA , AMS-IX and NL-IX. NaWas offers on-demand DDoS security for both small internet providers, and medium-sized and larger businesses, as well as for VoIP providers. NaWas is one of the largest DDoS internet traffic scrubbing centers in the Netherlands, and is now a well-known party on the market.

Together we are able to put up a powerful resistance against DDoS attacks.

The NBIP possesses equipment from well-known brands. We route traffic from a provider under attack through this equipment for a thorough “wash”, after which the clean traffic is redirected over a separate VLAN from AMS-IX or NL-IX.
