Purpose-built ASIC mitigates DDoS attack at line-rate without affecting performance. This has been proven by an independent testing lab and during our PoC. I find this product the best on-premises (in-line) DDoS mitigation solution that suits my current and future requirements. It can be also deployed off-ramp if the user has the know how. Layer 3, Layer 4, and Layer 7 DDoS attack mitigation including encrypted DDoS attack. All-in-one DDoS mitigation solution. Minimal to zero false-positives. Differentiate DDoS attack traffic from non-DDoS attack traffic from the same source IP and blocks only DDoS attack traffic. This has been proven during our PoC. Zero-day DDoS attack mitigation. Mitigates current and future DDoS attacks as it doesn't use signature. View full review »

* Detects and mitigates DDoS attacks at L3 to L7 - DDoS attacks are not only ICMP (L3) and UDP (L4). * Protection from Zero-day DDoS attacks - I don’t have to worry whether my current solution is relevant in the future. * Negligible to zero false-positives - With a high-rate of false-positives I would have to have a 24x7 NOC which would increas TCO and decreas customer confidence. * Ability to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks while allowing legitimate traffic from the same source IP. * Does not rely only/mainly on signature because a signature-based DDoS solution cannot detect many DDoS packets; and worse, they are the cause of false-positives. * Purpose-built CPU. * Generates and sends reports without the need for an expensive third-party solution - Such solutions for generating and sending reports would increase TCO.
