The Need for On Premise & In-Cloud Collaboration

Due to the increased tenacity of cybercriminals and the growth in complexity of DDoS attacks, the foundation for a comprehensive DDoS protection posture begins with an on-premises, always-on, purpose-built DDoS attack mitigation solution. Any selected solution should automatically identify and stop all types of DDoS attacks and other cyber threats before impacting the availability of business-critical services. 

Perimeter Defense Best Practices Using Arbor Edge Defense

Although traditional cloud-based DDoS protection solutions, including those provided by ISPs or CDNs, are designed to stop large volumetric DDoS attacks, they struggle to eliminate other types of DDoS attacks designed to evade their efforts.   

Cloud-based mitigation is an augmentation of on-premises protection. On-premises DDoS attack protection has capabilities intended to identify and mitigate those attacks designed to circumvent cloud-based solutions.   

What’s more, due to the dynamic, multi-vector nature of the modern-day DDoS attack, the Best Practice is to employ both on-premises and a cloud solution with an intelligent and automated integration that offers the most comprehensive protection.

Arbor Edge Defense is an Essential On-Premise DDoS Solution, Use Case

Why On-Premise Protection Should Be The Foundation of a Comprehensive DDoS Protection Strategy

Stopping Application Layer Attacks

Because application layer attacks are typically made up of lower volume traffic, they do not automatically trigger volumetric monitors employed by cloud scrubbing solutions and require on premise devices like Arbor Edge Defense (AED) to automatically detect and mitigate.

Blocking C2 Communication from Compromised Internal Devices

Once an attacker breaches your network, compromised internal devices will communicate with their command-and-control infrastructure for further instructions. Deployed outside your firewall, Arbor Edge Defense (AED) blocks Indicators of Compromise (IoC) acting as a last line of defense for your organization.
