Disruptions to internet services can cause major financial losses for companies and chaos for customers. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks disrupt services by flooding a network or server with enough packets or requests to crash it or seriously diminish its capability. Originally, DDoS attacks targeted networks, but like other tools at a hacker’s disposal, they are evolving in both quality and quantity.

AhnLab DPS is the product of years of ongoing research into DDoS attack patterns and expertise in analyzing and detecting malware. It ensures business continuity and resource availability with an inclusive security layer that detects hybrid DDoS attacks and effectively deals with rapidly escalating volumes of traffic.

AhnLab DPS: The Optimum DDoS Attack Protection System
DPS is designed to defeat today’s highly complex and sophisticated DDoS attacks with an intelligent defense strategy. To overcome the limitations of typical DDoS mitigation solutions and network devices such as IPS and firewalls, DPS employs multi-layered mitigation filters to identify and block all types of attacks, while allowing legitimate transactions to pass through without false-positives. Concurrent session overloads and connections-per-second capacities are not an issue with DPS’ stateless approach.

The More, The Better
DPS is designed to defeat today’s highly complex and sophisticated DDoS attacks with an intelligent defense strategy.

Accurate and Discreet
Typical DDoS attack mitigation solutions are struggling to keep up with the emergence of hybrid attacks.

These solutions give off false positives routinely, which cause unnecessary interruptions and misdirect important organizational resources. DPS, on the other hand, minimizes service disruptions caused by false-positives, due to accurate detection of malicious TCP and HTTP requests. In addition, DPS protects systems against targeted, small-scale HTTP attacks that slip in below the threshold of typical solutions.

Quantity Means As Much As Quality
The outstanding scalability provided by the DPS clustering capability provides simultaneous management for up to 20Gbps/30Mpps of traffic.

A list of trusted IP addresses is synchronized with all the other devices within the cluster, to ensure that legitimate traffic can pass, even during a DDoS attack. Clustered devices function seamlessly as a single unit, to respond effectively to volumetric DDoS attacks, while providing scalability to protect all sizes of networks. DPS can simultaneously configure up to 64 different zones with unique protection policies for each zone.

The protection policies define filters and traffic thresholds for the zone and allow in-depth protection where needed.

The Expectations
Organizations need an effective, comprehensive approach to ensure the continuity of services and resources. With its clustering technology and multiple protection layers, DPS effectively mitigates both volumetric and small, targeted attacks. DPS provides the optimal defense for Internet resources and services.

  • Maintains Business Continuity: By preventing business disruptions, DPS reduces the risk of lost sales, inconvenienced customers, or damaged reputations.
  • Reduces Human Resource Costs: With its multi-layered mitigation filters and autonomous learning capability, DPS can reduce the need for hands-on monitoring and changes to configuration settings that are required by typical DDoS mitigation solution.
  • Monitors 24/7: DPS shows the status of traffic and filters on the network, including system resource usage and network port connections. It can be accessed from mobile devices, which provides unparalleled visibility of network security.
  • Minimizes aftershocks: As soon as new attack patterns or methods are detected, DPS responds promptly, which minimizes the time and effort required to deal with aftershocks of the incident.
