In the DDoS it's difficult to validate what is a genuine request from an end user. We've started being able to do that with the logistics that they have set up. With the protection that they have provided, they are able to identify what is valid and what is not valid. We see that a person who is getting DDoS Neustar service is able to block that particular user. However, while they are doing that it doesn't affect other customers on the server.

Cons
The WAF features definitely have a lot of room for improvement. A lot of the WAF is really basic. For some products or some of our solutions, we need to run a second layer of more advanced WAF. If it had better layer seven protection then we would not need a second WAF.There are some issues with pushing configurations across a network. It still takes about 20 minutes and that means to retract it's another 20 minutes.

I would like to see a dashboard that shows you the data that is transferred from which end. It's where people start looking at abuse management. People keep questioning when the mitigation is on what service it is and how many GBs are passing through. An end user dashboard that will help you identify all of these questions and that can be visible in your entire organization is something that would make sense.

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.
