ICT vendor Huawei today announced the launch of its anti-DDoS solution at the RSA Conference 2014.
Huawei said AntiDDoS8000 Series offers security capabilities, including 1Tbps performance and protection from application layer, mobile device and outbound Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
Liu Shaowei, Huawei’s Networking Business Unit General Manager, said: “These new breeds of advanced attacks are hard to detect with traditional flow-based anti-DDOS solutions but can be detected with Huawei’s new AntiDDoS8000 appliance.”
Huawei’s new AntiDDoS8000 appliance can defend several hundred Gigabits-per-second DDoS threats by employing advanced features such as signature learning, behavior analysis, reputation mechanism and Big Data analytics.
“Huawei’s anti-DDoS solution protected us from over 40,000 DDoS attacks last year — equivalent to over 100 attacks per day — at a maximum traffic rate of 100 Gbps. This is a powerful and user-friendly system that provides precise protection,” said Xinguo Wei, senior expert of information Security Center, Alibaba Group.
Huawei’s AntiDDoS8000 appliance can support a new service card with 160Gbps protection performance and a high-density line card with ten 10GE ports. Consequently, the largest model of AntiDDoS8000 can support upwards of 960Gbps performance.
Designed for carriers, data centers, large enterprises, and large Internet commerce providers, the AntiDDoS8000 appliance enhances the defense against application-layer attacks and the attacks in IPv6-IPv4 composite networking.
