The idea of an DDoS attack is simple: the attacker is trying to “overwhelm” the service (application servers, infrastructure, etc.). Lately, however, we have experienced a significant increase in these attacks. There is an increasing frequency of these attacks, in addition to their duration (globally, there even are users under permanent attack) and complexity (attacks are thoroughly prepared, often combining more than five different ways). The number of different goals is also increasing. We can say that these days virtually any company or a market segment can become a victim.
We need to realize that traditional security products (such as firewalls, IPS, next-generation firewalls, etc.) will not protect us from this type of risk. It’s not that they are bad – they are just designed for different types of security risks. From the perspective of security products, it is interesting that the customer can recognize whether DDoS protection works or not almost immediately. If DDoS protection does not work, the service is unavailable almost immediately. For customers that must be online, a specialized DDoS solution is the only logical choice.
Product DefensePro combines multiple technologies (NBA Syn protection, IPS, IP Reputation, SSL mitigation) with the option at any time to contact the Radware ERT (Emergency Response Team).
