Huawei and Nexusguard partner to offer DDoS protection

Huawei, a global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider in 170 countries and regions, and Nexusguard, the provider of DDoS security solutions, have partnered to offer a hybrid DDoS solution for Huawei customers. The solution was built specifically for Internet Service Providers and enterprises, as these types of business comprise the majority of Huawei’s customers. Huawei and Nexusguard’s hybrid solution will use on-premise equipment to handle smaller DDoS attacks while the cloud will be available for failover if an attack overloads the network. This ensures that all attacks are mitigated while the network suffers minimal latency and jitter.  The solution also boasts low false positive rates, the ability to mitigate a DDoS attack of any size, immediate protection, real-time attack monitoring and security across multiple layers.

Incapsula’s IP Protection Aims to Mitigate Direct-to-Origin Attacks

Incapsula, the provider of web security and CDN, has released a new security product aimed at protecting IPs that may already have a layer of protection through a CDN and the cloud. Though these CDN-based security solutions do handle DDoS and OSWAP top 10 attacks, they are not built to protect non-HTTPS traffic. Since attackers can use FTP, SMTP, MX and nearly all other non-web DNS records to learn the origin IP of the traffic, a DDoS attack can be launched directly at the origin, and firewalls will be unable to stop the attack. Flooding the network with this type of attack can cause intense congestion in the network and even take down the ISP. Incapsula’s solution is to add protection for single IPs through which traffic can be routed, screened and, if clean, passed through GRE tunnels back to the network. This is what their new IP protection provides to networks. This seems to be the best strategy at the time to handle and mitigate direct-to-origin attacks.
