Disruptions to Internet-facing services due to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can cripple operations, impact customers and result in major economic losses. The SmartWall Network Threat Defense System (TDS) is an intelligent, always on appliance that inspects traffic, detects threats and blocks DDoS attacks targeting protected network resources. It allows Service Providers, Hosting Providers, and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to deploy centralized or distributed DDoS attack protection solutions via purpose-built network security appliances that provide advanced Layer 3-7 threat protection.
This next-generation slim line DDoS protection appliance delivers 10Gbps full duplex or 20Gbps unidirectional performance in a ¼ wide, 1 RU form factor. It is a member of the Corero SmartWall Threat Defense System (TDS), an innovative family of space-saving, modular security platforms that will change the rules for inspection performance, security intelligence and network forensics, while providing an unprecedented level of scalability for protection against DDoS attacks.
This groundbreaking new appliance provides configurable policies to selectively enable a broad range of specific protection mechanisms to defend critical network assets against suspicious or malicious traffic types while allowing uninterrupted service access to legitimate users and applications. The SmartWall TDS also utilizes the concepts of Flex-Rule and Smart-Rule technology to apply granular detecting and blocking filters to a very specific DDoS attack with ease. These rules, leverage heuristic and closed loop policy, allow for rapid creation and deployment, thereby providing customers with the ability to respond rapidly to the evolving nature of sophisticated DDoS attacks.
Each appliance has a dedicated management port and is assigned a unique IP address. This centralized management minimizes IT overhead, speeds deployments and streamlines provisioning. In addition, Corero offers multiple management options for configuring, controlling, and monitoring the appliances including a flexible Browser-based GUI, a full SSH CLI and powerful REST API that supports open integration with existing management frameworks.
Management is performed via secure connection to the Corero Management Server (CMS). The CMS includes a dashboard for monitoring threat activity and viewing key security events. The CMS is delivered as a virtual appliance to run on customer-provided hardware.
