Arbor Networks Defends Against Fast Flood DDoS attacks

The latest release of Arbor Networks' Peakflow distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) platform can now detect Fast Flood DDoS attacks in as little as one second and initiate mitigation in less than thirty seconds.

The Peakflow platform includes two main components, Peakflow and the Peakflow Threat Management System. Peakflow combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with the Peakflow Threat Management System’s carrier-class threat management, which automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic, while maintaining other business traffic. With the ability to mitigate only the attack traffic, customer-facing services remain available while providers actively mitigate attacks. The Peakflow platform also powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.

The Peakflow Threat Management System now includes an optional on-box SSL acceleration card to deliver an integrated, one-appliance solution to inspect encrypted traffic for DDoS threats. DDoS attacks are blocked in real time as normal traffic passes uninterrupted – all without forcing changes to existing network and application infrastructure.

Arbor noted that through the end of the third quarter, more than 130 attacks larger than 100Gbps have occurred, a dramatic spike in the frequency of volumetric attacks compared to previous quarters.

“The majority of the world’s service providers rely on the Peakflow platform for network intelligence and DDoS protection. More than sixty providers utilize the Peakflow platform to also offer DDoS managed services to their customers. Our continued innovation in the area of DDoS attack detection and mitigation has duel benefits for our service provider customers, helping protect their own infrastructure while also improving their ability to deliver DDoS managed security offerings,” said Arbor Networks President, Matthew Moynahan.
