Huawei announced the launch of its next-generation anti-DDoS solution at RSA Conference 2014.
Huawei’s AntiDDoS8000 Series offers industry leading security capabilities, including 1Tbps performance and protection from application layer, mobile device and outbound Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
It can defend from several hundred Gigabits-per-second DDoS threats by employing features such as signature learning, behavior analysis, reputation mechanism and Big Data analytics.
Huawei’s AntiDDoS8000 appliance can support a new service card with 160Gbps protection performance and a high-density line card with ten 10GE ports. Consequently, the largest model of the appliance can support upwards of 960Gbps performance.
Designed for carriers, data centers, large enterprises, and large Internet commerce providers, the AntiDDoS8000 appliance enhances the defense against application-layer attacks and the attacks in IPv6-IPv4 composite networking.
Feature highlights include:
- Detection and mitigation of 100+ DDoS attacks including Application Layer DDoS (HTTP/HTTPS/DNS/SIP, etc.)
- Accurate mobile DDoS attack detection mechanism and zero false positive to mobile traffic when protecting mobile Internet service
- Prevention of outbound DDoS from data center with a daily update botnets library of 5 million active botnet IP addresses.
“DDoS attacks have become much more varied. Today we’re seeing a rise in application-based attacks as well as attacks launched directly from mobile devices,” said Liu Shaowei, Huawei’s Networking Business Unit General Manager. “These new breeds of advanced attacks are hard to detect with traditional flow-based anti-DDOS solutions but can be detected with Huawei’s new AntiDDoS8000 appliance.”
The new AntiDDoS8000 is available now. The 160Gbps service card will be available in Q4 of 2014.
