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 DDoS Network Security FortiDDoS protects from both known and zero day attacks with very low latency. It’s easy to deploy and manage, and includes comprehensive reporting and analysis tools. FortiDDoS includes 100% security processor (SPU-based Layer-3, Layer-4, and Layer-7 DDoS protection application-aware traffic management. Behavior-based DDoS protection to eliminate need for signature files, minimal false-positive detections through continuous threat evaluation, and ability to monitor hundreds of thousands of parameters simultaneously. Defense against every DDoS attack — bulk volumetric, Layer-7 application, and SSL/HTTPS and attack protection for DNS services via specialized tools.
Distributed Denial of Service (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 FortiDDoS has the technologies used traditionally to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks, how they evolved and why the state-of-the-art technology must rely on Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), inline symmetric or asymmetric deployments, a wide-spectrum of analysis methods covering from Layer-2 to Layer-7 of the OSI model, and why this must be done with high-performance, hardware-based architectures.
Fortinet DDoS Network Security — FortiDDoS
DDoS attack mitigation appliances — Fortinet FortiDDoS. Fortinet DDoS Network Security 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. Unmatched DDoS detection and mitigation performance with less than 50 microsecond latency. Easy-to-deploy and manage with automatic learning tools and intuitive GUI. Lowest TCO compared to other hardware and service-based DDoS mitigation solutions. Best false-detection avoidance with sub-minute blocking and attack reevaluation. FortiDDoS uses a 100% heuristic/behavior-based method to identify threats, compared to competitors that rely primarily on signature-based matching. Instead of requiring predefined signatures to identify attack patterns, Fortinet DDoS Network Security FortiDDoS uses its massively-parallel computing architecture to build an adaptive baseline of normal activity from hundreds-of-thousands of parameters and then monitors traffic against that baseline. Should an attack begin, FortiDDoS sees this as abnormal and immediately takes action to mitigate it.
A Different And Better Approach To DDoS Attack Mitigation
Only Fortinet DDoS Network Security uses a 100% SPU approach to its DDoS products without the performance compromises of a CPU or CPU/ASIC hybrid system. The SPU-TP2 transaction processors inspect 100% of both inbound and outbound Layer-3, Layer-4 and Layer-7 traffic, resulting in the fastest detection and mitigation, and the lowest latency in the industry.

Flexible Defense Mechanisms
Fortinet DDoS Network Security FortiDDoS protects against every DDoS attack including Bulk Volumetric, Layer-7 Application, DNS, and SSL/HTTPS attacks. From the oldest trick in the book to the latest in advanced application layer attacks, FortiDDoS has you covered. Bulk Volumetric Attacks were the first DDoS attack types and continue to pose significant threats today. While ISPs may prevent simple attacks of this type, the attacks are increasingly used to mask more complex application-level attack methods. The easiest way to deal with these types of threats is to simply block all abnormal traffic until the attack stops. The FortiDDoS IP Reputation scoring system continues to let “good” traffic in while mitigating Source IP addresses that are causing the problem. This process not only provides the protection you need, but also minimizes the effects of a “false positive” match from halting good client traffic.
