Overview
Akamai's Kona Site Defender extends security beyond the data center while maintaining site performance and availability in the face of fast-changing threats. It leverages the power of the Akamai Intelligent Platform to detect, identify and mitigate Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks before they ever reach the origin.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are growing in size, complexity, and malice. Neustar offers flexible solutions so you can stay connected, reduce the threat of theft, and protect your bottom line:

  • Cloud-Based DDoS Protection: Neustar SiteProtect cloud is the optimal choice for attacks too big for on-premises hardware to manage. Rely on our massive global network and scrubbing capacity to defend your Internet presence.
  • Hybrid DDoS Protection: Get the best of both worlds: on-premises hardware to stop smaller attacks instantly, plus the Neustar SiteProtect cloud when attack volume and complexity explode. We offer the largest and most effective hybrid platform solution.
  • On-Premises DDoS Protection: On-premises Arbor Networks hardware, fully managed by the NSOC, monitors your appliance and mitigates attacks 24/7.
  • Contingency/Failover Service: Gain backup or parallel processing capacity to stop large attacks faster. For SaaS providers, large financial organizations, and carriers especially, it’s a cost-effective way to uphold service quality.
