With Arbor NetworksPeakflow7.0, service providers can now detect Fast Flood DDoS attacks in as little as one second and initiate mitigation in less than thirty seconds says the official release of the company.

When you’re under attack, every second counts. Time to mitigation is critical for service providers because Fast Flood attacks can ramp up to multi-hundred gigabits in size in a matter of seconds, and have the potential to cause significant collateral damage across a provider network. In 2014, the DDoS landscape has been dominated by these very large attacks that leverage reflection/amplification capabilities within such network elements as DNS, NTP and more recentlySimple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP).Through the end of the third quarter, Arbor has seen more than 130 attacks larger than 100Gbps, a dramatic spike in the frequency of volumetric attacks compared to previous quarters.

“The majority of the world’s service providers rely on the Peakflow SP platform for network intelligence and DDoS protection. More than sixty providers utilize the Peakflow SP platform to also offer DDoS managed services to their customers. Our continued innovation in the area of DDoS attack detection and mitigation has duel benefits for our service provider customers, helping protect their own infrastructure while also improving their ability to deliver DDoS managed security offerings,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.
