Radware Introduces New DDoS Attack Mitigation Platform

Radware, a provider of application delivery DDoS attack protection solutions, this week unveiled its latest attack mitigation platform designed to help carriers and cloud providers protect against high volume DDoS attacks.

Radware, a provider of application delivery DDoS attack protection solutions, this week unveiled its latest attack mitigation platform designed to help carriers and cloud providers protect against high volume DDoS attacks.

According to Radware, its new attack mitigation platform provides up to 300Gbps of mitigation capacity and can help protect against volumetric DDoS attacks such as UDP reflection attacks, fragmented and out-of-state floods.

Radware’s DefensePro x4420 has the ability to handle 230 million packets per second of attack traffic and was designed for multi-tenant environments with the ability to support up-to 1,000 active policies, separate processing capabilities and customized management & reporting per tenant, the company said.

“Cyber-attacks have evolved and reached a tipping point in terms of quantity, length, complexity and targets,” says Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions for Radware. “In 2014, one in seven cyber-attacks were larger than 10Gbps and we’ve seen attacks 100+Gbps in size. The attack landscape is changing and cyber-attackers are getting more and more aggressive with their tactics. It’s not uncommon for mobile carriers and cloud providers to experience extra-large attacks.”

“Soon enough, DDoS attacks will eventually reach the 1Tbs level, placing manufacturers in a frenzy to keep up with future volumetric cyberattacks,” Dan Thormodsgaard, vice president of solutions architecture for FishNet Security, said in a statement.
