Always On vs. Always Available

Are you an "Always On" or "Always Available" customer?

This is very important to know, because it determines how we set up your Silverline service.

  • With Always On, all of your inbound traffic is always going through Silverline.
  • With Always Available, traffic continues to flow through your normal carriers with Silverline on standby. If you are under attack, you or the SOC switch your traffic to flow through Silverline scrubbing centers for mitigation.

  • For Always Available customers, your options for switching traffic over to Silverline.
