With Internet Exchange (IX), you can connect with peers through peering sessions and save time by managing your ports directly. The portal takes advanced measures to ensure the security of the platform by using the Internet Routing Registry, and offering BGP-based remotely triggered black hole filtering to drop DDoS attacks before they reach your router.
