Why is DDoS important?
Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks are on the rise and have evolved into complex and overwhelming security challenges for organisations, large and small. Although DoS attacks are not a recent phenomenon, the methods and resources available to conduct and mask such attacks have dramatically evolved to include Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks and, more recently, Distributed Reflector Denial-of-Service (DRDoS) attacks - attacks that simply cannot be addressed by traditional on-premise solutions.
Capito’s advanced DDoS protection, provisioned as a service at the network edge, matches the sophistication and scale of such threats, and can be used to mitigate DDoS attacks of all forms and sizes. As the leading network availability solution for the vast majority of global Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and many of the world’s largest enterprises, Capito works in partnership with Arbor Networks to deliver the Networks Peakflow solution, which offers proven DDoS protection and broad network visibility.
Increased Network Visibility. Stronger Security. Improved Services
Peakflow provides comprehensive network visibility and reporting capabilities to help detect and understand availability threats and improve traffic engineering, peering relationships and service performance.
Comprehensive DDoS Detection and Analysis
Peakflow combines pervasive, cost-effective visibility with real-time reporting of critical network traffic, services and applications to proactively protect against DDoS attacks, including comprehensive protection for dual-stack IPv4 / IPv6 infrastructure.
Application Layer Intelligence and Protection
Peakflow provides the application-layer intelligence you need to secure and manage critical business applications such as voice, video, data, messaging, file sharing, web, email and more, against advanced threats. With the ability to instantly see what applications are running on your network, we can profile their behaviour, detect and report on application traffic violations. This in-depth, real-time intelligence enables us to accelerate problem resolution and minimise network downtime.
Intelligent Traffic Engineering
By modelling IPv4 and IPv6 traffic across the entire network, Peakflow allows us to make timely and informed decisions about routing, transit, partners, customers and quality of service. Peakflow also improves traffic engineering and capacity planning by correlating topology information with real-time and historic traffic data. With this rich insight into network traffic and customer-by-customer traffic matrices, we can make cost-efficient adjustments to network traffic operations and eliminate hot spots before they adversely impact services.
