Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are ever evolving and use a variety of technologies. To successfully combat these attacks, you need a dynamic, multi layered security solution. Fortinet FortiDDoS protects from both known and zero day attacks with very low latency. Fortinet FortiDDoS is easy to deploy and manage, and includes comprehensive reporting and analysis tools. Fortinet FortiDDoS achieves superior and faster DDoS protection with 100% ASIC based Layer-3, Layer-4, and Layer-7 DDoS protection. Behavior based DDoS protection to eliminate need for signature files. Ability to monitor hundreds of thousands parameters simultaneously for complete coverage. Optional cloud based monitoring. Minimal false positive detections through continuous threat evaluation. Defense against every DDoS attack — bulk volumetric, Layer-7 application, and SSL/HTTPS. Fortinet uses state of the art technology with Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), inline symmetric or asymmetric deployments.
DDoS attacks are some of the oldest of Internet threats. Despite that, due their simplicity and effectiveness, they continue to be a top risk for public services around the world. As protections have evolved, the technology used by hackers has adapted and become much more sophisticated. New attack types now target applications and services, and not only are bulk Layer-3 and Layer-4 DDoS events becoming more sophisticated but many times they are masked in apparently legitimate traffic, or combined in unique new zero-day attacks, making it very difficult to detect them. Fortinet is the only company to use a 100% custom ASIC approach to its DDoS products and uses a 100% adaptive behavior based method to identify threats. Fortinet offers unmatched DDoS detection and mitigation performance with less than 50 microsecond latency. Fortinet appliances are easy to deploy and manage with automatic learning tools and intuitive GUI. You will get the lowest TCO compared to other hardware and service based DDoS mitigation solutions.
Fortinet FortiDDoS — DDoS Attack Mitigation
The Fortinet FortiASIC — TP2 transaction processors provide both detection and mitigation of DDoS attacks. The FortiASIC — TP2 processor handles all Layer-3, Layer-4 and Layer-7 traffic types, speeding detection and mitigation performance resulting in the lowest latency in the industry. Fortinet FortiDDoS uses a 100% heuristic/behavior-based method to identify threats compared to competitors that rely primarily on signature based matching. Instead of using pre defined signatures to identify attack patterns, Fortinet FortiDDoS builds a baseline of normal activity and then monitors traffic against it. Should an attack begin, Fortinet FortiDDoS sees this as an anomaly and then immediately takes action to mitigate it. You’re protected from known attacks and from the unknown zero day attacks as Fortinet FortiDDoS doesn’t need to wait for a signature file to be updated. Fortinet FortiDDoS handles attack mitigation differently than other solutions. In other DDoS attack mitigation appliances, once an attack starts, it’s 100% blocked until the threat is over.
DDoS attacks continue to remain the top threat to IT security and have evolved in almost every way to do what they do best: shut down your vital online services. Never has a problem been so dynamic and broad-based without being tied to one particular technology. There is almost an unlimited array of tools that hacktivists and cyber terrorists can use to prevent access to your network. Sophisticated DDoS attacks target Layer-7 application services where they are much smaller in size making it nearly impossible for traditional ISP based mitigation methods to detect them. To combat these attacks, you need a solution that is equally dynamic and broad-based. Fortinet’s FortiDDoS Attack Mitigation appliances use behavior based attack detection methods and 100% ASIC based processors to deliver the most advanced and fastest DDoS attack mitigation on the market today. Fortinet FortiDDoS uses a more surgical approach by monitoring normal traffic and then using a reputation penalty scoring system.
