Juniper Networks Teams With Verisign to Link On-Premise and Cloud-Based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection
|Juniper Networks Teams With Verisign to Link On-Premise and Cloud-Based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection|
SUNNYVALE, CA–(Marketwired – Mar 17, 2014) – Juniper Networks (
DDoS attacks continue to grow both in size and sophistication, making them one of the major cyber security risks for businesses of all sizes across all verticals. The unprecedented scale of high-volume attacks, which leverage massive amounts of traffic to overwhelm network resources — combined with targeted low-bandwidth attacks on applications — makes the DDoS threat diverse and difficult to protect against. While many organizations have started to adopt DDoS protection, they often find themselves needing to make a series of trade-offs in architectural deployment, capabilities and traffic thresholds that ultimately could lead to increased cost and reduced efficacy.
“The joint Juniper Networks and Verisign solution will help customers improve time to mitigation by quickly handling low-volume attacks with on-premise hardware, while still offering the added security of back-up in the cloud for large-scale and extremely complex attacks. Access to both approaches is important to ensure a comprehensive DDoS solution that is adaptable and can handle all types of attacks faster and more efficiently.”
“DDoS can happen anytime and can cripple an organization. Addressing today’s complex DDoS threats requires a different approach than the static and purely reactive methods of the past that are resource-intensive and operationally challenging. Companies today need high-IQ networks that are automated and adaptive and that can deliver real-time and efficient detection and mitigation to ensure their network and applications are ‘always on.’ No one can deliver on those requirements as well as Juniper and Verisign together.”
“In today’s network-dependent world, DDoS solutions must be able to detect and mitigate zero day threats and large-scale attacks to help businesses of all types and sizes stay secure, stable and available. Our hybrid approach makes this possible by helping to ensure immediate mitigation on-premise with Juniper and in the cloud with Verisign, thereby quickly addressing attacks while also providing the extra bandwidth needed for mitigation as those attacks ramp up.”
