Businesses are moving more services to the cloud, making them highly dependent on network availability. A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack can quickly overwhelm a network, taking services offline. The potential impact of such an outage will be immediate and potentially severe, as customers and other users will be locked out, potentially for a significant amount of time.
IDE Group has deployed the A10 Networks Thunder TPS, into the fabric of our network. A10 TPS provides high-performance, network-wide protection from DDoS attacks, maintaining service availability against a variety of volumetric, protocol, resource, and other sophisticated application attacks.
Protection against all attack types
Hugely scalable to cope with any volume
Emergency mitigation while under attack
IDE Group’s carrier grade DDOS protection is designed to detect and alert suspicious activity, as well as mitigate its impact. All IDE Group customers with equipment and services deployed ‘On-net’ can add 24×7×365 DDoS monitoring and analysis.
High-speed detection and forensic analysis software analyses all IDE Group’s network traffic. When any system starts behaving unusually, IDE Group’s Network Operations Centre and the A10 TPS platform are alerted. The A10 TPS solution then mitigates the effects of DDoS attacks by automatically redirecting traffic.
The solution supports a huge set of features to validate, block or rate-limit the traffic entering our network. Service availability is maintained whatever attack type is employed, volumetric, protocol, resource or even application-level attacks. DDoS traffic is routed through the A10 TPS platform and ‘scrubbed’, to remove the malicious traffic. Clean traffic is then delivered, ensuring that your service is not impacted in any way.
