DDoS attacks are evolving. The new preferred method of DDoS attack is a multi-vector dynamic direct path attack that adjusts vectors and methodologies to continually evade existing DDoS defenses. Add to this the ransomware, phishing attempts, and compromised IoT devices and you can see how organizations are under constant risk from all types of advanced cyber threats. To address these evolving threats, security teams need solutions that can dynamically adapt to the changing attacks - both entering or leaving their networks. Just as importantly, these solutions must also be able to integrate into an organization’s existing security stack and/or consolidate functionality to reduce cost, complexity, and risk.
NETSCOUT Arbor Edge Defense (AED) is uniquely positioned on the network edge (i.e., between the internet router and the firewall) to provide an inline, always-on, first and last line of defense. Using stateless packet processing, continuous global threat intelligence, decades of DDoS protection and mitigation expertise, and patented adaptive DDoS defense technology, AED can automatically stop inbound, dynamically changing DDoS attacks and outbound communication from internal compromised devices communicating with threat actor command and control (C2) infrastructure. Arbor Enterprise Manager provides a centralized and scalable single-pane-of-glass console for managing all AEDs.
