When it comes to detecting DDoS and botnet traffic, you need to get it right. Right away.
Your security appliances are constantly on the lookout for traffic irregularities that could spell trouble. When monitoring networks for traffic anomalies, you need to be able to distinguish between malicious flooding and legitimate traffic spikes. Otherwise, you run the risk of over-blocking and angering your users. And when a bona fide attack is detected, it has to be neutralized right away, without blocking or limiting legitimate traffic flows that are sharing the same network resource, often behind a NAT IP. Allot’s advanced anomaly detection technologies – Network Behavior Anomaly Detection (NBAD) and Host Behavior Anomaly Detection (HBAD) – do both. These patented technologies power Allot DDoS Protection and Bot Containment solutions which are deployed in service provider and enterprise networks worldwide, where they provide a first line of defense against cyber threats.
