DDoS

What is a DDOS attack?

DDoS stands for “Distributed Denial of Service.” A DDoS attack is a malicious attempt to make a server or a network resource unavailable to users, usually by temporarily interrupting or suspending the services of a host connected to the Internet. Unlike a Denial of Service (DoS) attack, in which one computer and one internet connection is used to flood a targeted resource with packets, a DDoS attack uses many computers and many Internet connections.

What technologies do you use to mitigate DDoS attacks?

Unlike most DDoS protection service providers, who integrate third-party solutions over which they don’t have any control and are infrequently updated, Akamai’s DDoS Protection solution was built from the ground up using proprietary, self-developed technologies. This includes dedicated hardware (i.e., scrubbing servers) with the highest levels of scalability and resiliency, as required to handle the largest network DDoS attacks. Based on Akamai’s security expertise and using proprietary technology developed specifically for this purpose, these servers perform robust deep packet inspection (DPI) identify and block malicious packets based on the most granular of details. This new technology lets us inspect all attributes of each incoming packet, while serving hundreds of gigabits of traffic at an inline rate. By using our own best-in-class technologies, we have the flexibility to evolve our DDoS protection at DevOps speed, enabling us to provide customers with the best protection against massive volumetric attacks, as well as highly sophisticated application layer (Layer 7) attacks.

What types of DDoS attacks can be mitigated by Akamai?

Akamai will protect you website against all types of DDoS attacks, including volumetric network (Layer 3-4) DDoS attacks and Application (Layer 7) DDoS attacks. Akamai’s Anti-DDoS solution combines smart signature and behavior identification algorithms with a global network of high-powered servers. This multi-layer solution provides protection against all types of DDoS attacks.

WAF

What is a Web Application Firewall (WAF)?

According to OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project), a web application firewall (WAF) is an appliance, server plugin, or filter that applies a set of rules to an HTTP conversation. Generally, these rules cover common attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection. By customizing the rules to your application, many types of web attacks can be identified and blocked.

What types of web security threats does Akamai’s WAF protect against?

Akamai’s WAF secures your application from any type of application layer hacking attempt, such as SQL injection, cross site scripting, illegal resource access, and other OWASP Top 10 threats. Advanced client classification technology detects and blocks malicious bots that are often used for application DDoS attacks, scraping and vulnerability scanning.
