Deflect is a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) and cyber-attack mitigation platform that helps protect the websites of vulnerable civic groups. The service is made free to eligible non-profit civic and human rights organizations.


If you believe your organization or an organization that you support may benefit from DDoS protection, they might qualify for free protection under Deflect. Please contact NDI's DemTech team directly for support in applying for the program. DemTech can also answer question about use cases and timeline for implementation. You can read more about protecting websites from DDoS attacks in the Cybersecurity Handbooks for Civil Society Organizations and Political Parties as well.

If your website uses Wordpress, non-profit users of Deflect might also qualify for free hosting under eQualitie's eQPress program.
