Some attackers are hacktivists. Others are looking for financial gain. Some just want to cause chaos. But, when you’re under attack, motivations don’t matter. What’s important is detecting attack traffic, cleansing it from your network, and maintaining the service your customers expect.
Of course, it’s not that easy. Outdated scrubbing is too slow to keep up with the short, intense profiles of modern attacks. Meanwhile, the sheer volume of traffic involved in an attack could be too much for your existing protection to handle.
The Corero SmartWall Network Threat Defense System (TDS) gives you real-time detection and mitigation, designed around the latest DDoS threats. Incoming packets are scanned and analysed and, if they appear to be part of an attack, they’re blocked from entering your network.
Bot-nets are getting bigger. The sheer volume of traffic that can be targeted at your infrastructure has grown to astonishing levels. So you need to be prepared to fend off even the biggest multi-gigabit attacks.
Today, more and more DDoS attacks are short yet significant. According to Corero, 66% of attacks last less than five minutes, but use complex, multi-vector techniques. As a result, a fast response is essential.
A successful DDoS attack is a significant danger. Victims lose money. And reputation. And business.
So as attacks become more sophisticated, your defence needs to do the same.
SmartWall TDS is a 1-10Gbps full-duplex appliance, leveraging Smart-Rule and Flex-Rule technology to detect and filter attack traffic. It’s capable of defending your organisation against even the biggest, most sophisticated attacks.
But while it’s big on performance, it’s small where it counts. Compact enough to slot into your rack with a ¼ wide, 1 RU form factor. And available at an extremely competitive price point.
Since we put SmartWall TDS into place, we have not had one customer adversely affected by any DDoS attacks.
As new attacks emerge, I am counting on Corero. I know they have my back.
The Corero solution gives us this extra layer of defence that most other hosting providers don’t offer.
