DDoS Mitigation


In today’s threat landscape, DDoS attacks are nearly impossible to avoid, but AIS can help you aggressively resist attacks so you can carry on with business as usual, even while under fire.

According to a recent report, 42 percent of organizations experienced a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack in 2017. These attacks can take down a website or server with brute force, bombarding its target with a flood of traffic. Unfortunately, such attacks are increasing in volume, velocity, duration, and complexity.

Mitigation starts with the basics to ensure your network integrity: firewalls, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), and load balancers. Knowledge of the threat landscape improves your threat protection. Our security experts stay on top of the latest breaches and identify vulnerabilities in your network before cyber criminals do, patching and eliminating opportunities for attack.

In the inevitable event of a DDoS attack, AIS is able to scatter the attack traffic across our distributed network of servers, absorbing the impact of the attack to manageable levels and keeping you online. We can also create a blackhole route to funnel in unwanted traffic. Utilizing user identification technology, AIS differentiates between legitimate traffic and harmful bots, blocking malicious traffic from ever reaching your site.

AIS leverages next-generation tools and expertise to counter all variety of DDoS attacks:

PROACTIVE PROTECTION: AIS provides proactive protection against DDoS attacks with a multi-level cloud-based approach that stops attacks against any type of traffic (not just HTTP) without human intervention.

ABSORB: AIS absorbs attack traffic at the edge of the network, scrubs it and delivers clean traffic back to your systems via GRE, Proxy (DNS change), pseudo-wire (MPLS) or private interconnect.

MITIGATE: AIS mitigates the risk of DDoS attacks with a 24/7/365 security engine that analyzes raw traffic in real time for signatures, heuristics and policy-based reputation decisions. If a destination IP address is determined to be under attack, our on-premises appliances either mitigate the attack immediately or divert traffic for scrubbing and immediate remediation.

ANALYZE: For ongoing defense and protection of your network, AIS continually analyzes packet data for complex application attacks such as HTTP, SSL, DNS, Mail, FTP and many others. Legitimate traffic is allowed to flow freely without disruption.

Attacks will happen, but with the right partner in place with AIS, they don’t have shut you down.
