Protection from Today's DDoS Attacks is Essential

In the world we are living in today, with constant advancements in technology, it has become even more important that networks are protected from threats and attacks through any of the myriad mobile devices currently available.  One forerunner in this industry is Huawei (News - Alert), which will be announcing the release of its new anti-DDoS (“Distributed Denial of Service”) solution at an upcoming conference. 

The company’s AntiDDoS8000 series includes advanced security abilities, 1 Tbps of performance and protection from multiple forms of attack—such as application layer, mobile device and outbound DDoS attacks.

AntiDDoS8000 can defend up to several hundred Gigabits-per-second of DDoS threats by employing industrial-level features of signature learning, behavior analysis, reputation mechanism and big data analytics.  With the several hundred Gigabits-per-second speed it is the fastest solution available in the industry and is able to handle a new service card with 160Gbps protection performance as well as a high-density line card with 10GE ports making the largest model able to support up to 960Gbps of performance.  There will be demonstrations at the RSA (News - Alert) Conference on February 25-27 in South hall booth number 2101.

Technology is continually advancing which potentially creates the issue of keeping up with advancements in order protect it.  Huawei, a global provider of ICT solutions, has been working to keep a step ahead in order to develop cutting-edge products. The company designs solutions with its customers’ needs in mind, and strives to offer solutions that are as effective as they are affordable.

 It will be interesting to see what is in store for the future of virtual security, and how far technology will take us.  But it is comforting to know that no matter what advancements may come, companies like Huawei are working with and embracing those changes to make sure that they cannot be turned against users.
