• Service Provider Security: DDoS attacks


Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks are an increasing threat, growing in volume, frequency, and sophistication. Out-of-Path DDoS detection based on flow data is a proven, effective, and scalable method to protect against volumetric DDoS attacks. In case of attack, Flowmon's DDoS Defender injects a BGP route to the protected destination causing the router to send it through F5 Big-IP for further analysis and protection. Scrubbing device has visibility up to the application level and is capable of protecting from contrived attacks targeting L4 up to L7.
