Verifying Resilience to DDoS Attacks
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can target any application or service that isreachable from the internet . Web servers, DNS servers, routers, session border controllers, andmany other services are constantly subject to attack. Identifying and mitigating these attacks is done using on-premises solutions, cloud-based solutions, or a hybrid solution combing both.
DDoS mitigation is not static. With the power, sophistication, and frequency of DDoS attacks rising, DDoS mitigation must continually evolve in order to protect against the latest attack scenarios. But how can you be sure you are protected? Waiting for an attack to happen to test your resilience is a risky proposition. NETSCOUT’s SpectraSecure solution helps you eliminate that risk.
The NETSCOUT Solution for DDoS Mitigation Testing
SpectraSecure tests DDoS resilience in a controlled manner using configurable threat vectors that can mimic the malicious traffic launched by botnets. SpectraSecure utilizes test-botnets to simulate real-world attack scenarios in a customer’s controlled environment. Using SpectraSecure, you can validate the resilience of any potential target, including networks, applications, and services. Test attacks launched by SpectraSecure appear massively distributed, even when the test-botnet consists of a small number of Virtual Machines. A single test using a volumetric attack vector may appear to originate from millions of unique endpoints.
