Adaptive DDoS Protection for Arbor Edge Defense® (AED) is NETSCOUT’s innovation to help you address the challenges of defending against dynamic DDoS attacks.

Step 1 Analyze – Adaptive DDoS Protection uses machine learning (ML) to continuously analyze new packets that have passed current countermeasures configured on AED.

Step 2: Detect – Then it detects any unblocked attacks and identifies the attack types and the services under attack.

Step 3: Alert – The third step is to alert users with specific attack details as well as recommendations for the implementation of protection actions.

Step 4: Update Blocking – The fourth step is to update countermeasure configurations to block the newly detected attacks.

Step 5: Repeat – This cycle repeats to make sure you have the latest defense in place.
