Threat protection system introduces advanced DDoS mitigation

A10 Networks updates Thunder TPS
Jalan: More detailed threat analysis and updated tools help to combat the impact of DDoS attacks.

A10 Networks this week announced its Thunder TPS Release 3.1, which includes a fully programmable policy engine via the regex or enhanced aFleX commands, extends new advanced DDoS mitigation capabilities to block additional attacks such as the recent POODLE attack, and provides advanced rate-limiting for granular Layer 4-7 control to enable incident mitigation.

TPS 3.1 also includes detection capabilities, with access to over 400 global, destination-specific and behavioural counters, to eliminate false positives, according to A10.

"These granular forensics protect applications and networks while they remain highly available," the company said in a statement. "Significant visibility enhancements expose enhanced traffic details to provide a comprehensive understanding of regular and anomalous traffic patterns. The enhanced easy-to-use GUI provides dashboard, incident and rich report views, which can be analysed to improve any DDoS protection strategy."

The TPS series is aimed at organisations that are concerned about DDoS attacks, which have been growing in scale and sophistication, according to reports from several security vendors over the past year.

"More detailed threat analysis and updated tools help to combat the impact of DDoS attacks by preventing damage to critical online resources and the bottom line," said Raj Jalan, CTO, A10 Networks. "With these enhancements, A10 Networks sets the stage to provide additional correlated analytics and ease of administration, including centralised management and automatic traffic base-lining features in the near future."
