An On-Premises DDoS Defense Should be a Priority
Industry analysts are coming to grips with the fact that due to today’s growing frequency and complexity of DDoS attacks, the need for a multilayer hybrid defense strategy is now a requirement. Furthermore, due to the creation of new attack vectors like Adaptive DDoS Attack which changes vectors based on the defense that is presented, the need for On-Premises protection with its inherent attack management agility and efficiency is a priority. It should be considered the foundation of a comprehensive DDoS protection strategy.
Excellent tool. Before installing NETSCOUT Arbor we were unaware of the amount of unwanted traffic hitting our network. Being able to block these has definitely given our firewall some breathing space.
Why On-Premise Protection Should Be The Foundation of a Comprehensive DDoS Attack Mitigation Strategy
NETSCOUT Arbor DDoS Attack protection solution is an intelligently automated, combination of in-cloud and on-premises DDoS attack protection that is continuously backed by global threat intelligence and expertise.
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.
Stateful devices within your network like NGFWs, VPN Concentrators and Load Balancers are common targets for state exhaustion attacks. Protecting them in an always on manner can only be accomplished with an On Premise stateless device like AED.
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.
When cyber criminals embed attacks within encrypted traffic the only way to detect them is through decryption. Unlike decryption in the cloud, a safer method is to utilize the on-premises, embedded decryption capabilities in Arbor Edge Defense (AED).
