NSFOCUS Unveils New DDoS Mitigation Solution with Contextual Analysis

NSFOCUS, a leader in holistic hybrid security solutions, today unveiled Attack Threat Monitoring, which provides real-time insights and contextual awareness of the global DDoS threat landscape. Attack Threat Monitoring (ATM) provides attack insights from organizations with the smallest internet footprint to global businesses that own IP ranges all over the world.

This new solution allows users to see an in-depth analysis and assessment of the DDoS attack beyond a standard flow analysis. ATM features a Global Situation Dashboard that provides real-time awareness of the DDoS situation based on data received from the NSFOCUS Network Traffic Analyzer, a threat detection appliance that identifies malicious traffic or third-party data flow aggregators. To take it a step deeper, Attack Threat Monitoring provides drill-down capability into countries from the world map providing a better view of attack sources and targets on a hyper-local and global scale.

Historical information on DDoS attack data is also available within ATM to provide the user with insight into the size and scope of DDoS attacks to the organization. ATM integrates with NSFOCUS Threat Intelligence, a subscription service by NSFOCUS Security Labs that provides users with actionable intelligence to minimize risk and improve security posture across an enterprise. With this integration users are presented with contextual information about attack sources such as their IP reputation across ten categories, previous attack history, and commonality with other IP addresses in the sources ASN.

Last month, NSFOCUS released the Behavior Analysis of IP Chain-Gangs report which analyzed the IP Chain-Gangs attack types, volume, size of events, gang activities, and attack rates using Attack Threat Monitoring. By studying the historical behavior of the 80 gangs identified in the report, NSFOCUS built several unique gang profiles within ATM to analyze their preferred attack methodologies and how to develop a better defense system against future attacks.

"One of the most exciting features of Attack Threat Monitoring is the comprehensive analysis and reporting," said Richard Zhao, COO, NSFOCUS. "With the data available to users, organizations can develop strategies for mitigating future DDoS attacks. By building behavior profiles of their DDoS incidents, organizations can reference these and determine risk levels of the source traffic. This product will further help our customers reduce risk and save money using a security solution that is smart and simple."
