Fuelled by massive Internet of Things (IoT) botnets and new reflected amplification exploits, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks continue to grow in size and sophistication and have broken the one Tbps barrier.
The current pandemic has only increased the threat as cyber attackers find new targets in healthcare, government, online gaming and remote working services. Service providers, MSSPs and enterprises require a new generation of DDoS protection technology to protect their networks.
To respond to this threat, A10 Networkd is offering a leap forward for service providers with DDoS protection at the scale required to stop today’s cyber threats. The vendor has released the highest-performance DDoS protection appliance to help service providers and MSSPs mitigate the largest DDoS attacks.
The A10 Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) 7655 provides up to 1.2 Tbps blocking capacity and 380 Gbps scrubbing capacity. Combining zero-day automated protection (ZAP) powered by artificial intelligence (AI) via machine learning (ML) and advanced software mitigations, the Thunder TPS delivers unprecedented protection in a compact 1.5U form factor, enabling customers to efficiently scale-out their DDoS defences as the threat landscape expands. The Thunder 7655 TPS will be available in the third quarter this year.
