Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks can be unleashed by anyone, but with a little preparation, you can prevent service disruptions caused by DDoS. Check Point DDoS-P (DDoS Protection) uses a hybrid of dedicated on-premises and cloud-based resources to defend against volumetric, application, reflective and resource-exhaustive DDoS attacks.
DDoS toolkits are relatively easy to obtain online and require limited technical experience or resources to initiate an attack – and the outcome can be devastating. A well-orchestrated denial-of-service takes a toll on productivity, customer service, reputation and revenue.
To combat DDoS effectively, organizations need endpoint monitoring tools to immediately and effectively halt flooding at both the network and application layers, before a successful attack can take hold.
Once they have identified a vulnerable target, hackers don’t let up. Eighty-seven percent of DDoS attack victims were attacked multiple times.
Attackers are also evolving their methods to make detection more difficult, often by favoring “low and slow” attacks that may not immediately raise the alarm. Others use DDoS as a smokescreen to draw the attention of the security team while data is stolen.
Block destructive DDoS attacks before they cause damage. Check Point DDoS Protector™ Appliances extend your security perimeters with multi-layered DDoS Protection against DDoS attacks and up to 40 Gbps of performance on its endpoint protection platforms.
Check Point Penalty Box, a feature of Advanced Networking and Clustering Software Blade, helps you identify and quarantine unwanted traffic quickly and efficiently, while minimizing processor utilization spikes. When traffic exceeds your policy violation threshold, Penalty Box quickly drops that traffic temporarily, then re-introduces and monitors it. Traffic is quarantined until it falls below the policy violation threshold.
The Check Point Incident Response Service provides additional resources to combat and remediate attacks. Our experts, available 24×7, will instantly respond to help you contain the threat, minimize your losses and return you to business as usual.
