Finding the root cause of DDoS and brute-force attacks

Relentless brute-force attacks and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against enterprises continue to be on the rise. The skyrocketing volume of global IP traffic is a root cause problem. Out of control IP traffic volumes also contributes to increased risk and overall cybersecurity costs.

Time continues to demonstrate that reactive cybersecurity is an insufficient defense plan against these types of attacks. Many security teams look to PacketViper to help them go on the offensive and be more proactive in their network defense.

The Answer: Dynamic Perimeter Defense

Endless reconnaissance scans on your network coupled with ever increasing volumes of global IP traffic continue to overwhelm traditional perimeter defense solutions, creating an increased risk of a successful DDoS attack and resulting in unmanageable volumes of logs and alerts.  PacketViper allows users to easily geo-target and perform precise filtering based on business intelligence, threat intelligence and custom rules. With ‘point & click’ simplicity PacketViper can take up to 70% of the load off the network, establishing IP filtering rules at the port level, both inbound and outbound, specific to countries, companies and networks.

How It Works

PacketViper sits outside of the firewall as an undetectable in-line bridge that combines the IP data with the logging and alerts, and ties all of that to a reporting and rules engine. The result is the ability to easily configure filtering rules to create flooding protectors and triggers that identify anomalies in network traffic.

The granular functionality of the triggers permits organizations to automatically block unwanted traffic and/or notify network administrators of an increase in traffic to specific ports. The result is a cost-effective perimeter DDoS solution that stops the attack before it even hits your firewall.
