Arbor Edge Defense – A First and Last Line of Defense
Watch this demo to see how NETSCOUT’s Arbor Edge Defense (AED):
- Is deployed on the network edge, inside the internet router and outside the firewall where it acts as a first and last line of network edge defense.
- Uses stateless packet processing technology to block inbound non-DDoS attacks such as reconnaissance, a brute force telnet attack, or traffic from a TOR Exit Node.
- Uses ATLAS or 3rd party threat Intelligence to block outbound Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) such as command and control traffic from a RAT, that has been missed by the entire network security stack.
AED Hybrid-DDoS defense on your customer's premises combined with Arbor Sightline and TMS in your network scrubbing center provides the most comprehensive form of DDoS protection.
Deployed on the network edge, inside the internet router and outside the firewall, Arbor Edge Defense is armed with ATLAS or 3rd party threat intelligence and uses stateless packet processing technology to block inbound and outbound threats – essentially acting as a first and last line of network edge defense.
What is hybrid-DDoS Protection?
Hybrid-DDoS protection is the intelligent and automated combination of on-premises and cloud-based mitigation. For smaller DDoS attacks such as state-exhaustion and application-layer attacks, the best method of protection is to deploy stateless protection on the premises.
For volumetric DDoS attacks that are larger than the internet pipe, cloud-based mitigation is the best/only form of protection. Since DDoS attacks use a combination of attack vectors, Hybrid-DDoS protection provides the intelligent and automated combination of on-premises and cloud-based mitigation.
