New DDoS Secure and MX Solution for the Network Fabric Enables Enterprises and Service Providers to Stop DDoS Attacks Farther Out in the Network
SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 17, 2014) - Juniper Networks (
Businesses today demand more sophisticated protection as attacks on the network become more complicated and difficult to identify. Leveraging the information and intelligence that is inherent in the network is critical to building a secure High-IQ Network and Juniper Networks is enabling this capability with the developments that are described in today's announcement. These new enhancements allow attacks detected by DDoS Secure at the network and application-layer to be stopped closer to the source by using networking protocols to make the Juniper MX Series routers function as enforcement points.
This approach provides enterprises and service providers a more efficient way of stopping the volumetric attacks that can potentially cripple a network. It also mitigates other popular DDoS attack methods, including inside-out Domain Name System (DNS) reflection and amplification attacks, as well as the negative effects that botnet-infected devices can have on the user experience for a service provider's customers. According to Infonetics Research, new varieties of amplification attacks are pushing the boundaries of mitigation performance and driving increased investment in DDoS prevention. Examples include the 2013 DNS amplification attack aimed at Spamhaus that topped 300G, and the NTP amplification attack earlier this year that exceeded 400G.(1)
Juniper Networks is introducing improvements to its Juniper DDoS Secure solution to provide tighter integration into routing and service provider infrastructures with BGP Flowspec and GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) protocols. This approach enables new forms of protection that can more effectively and efficiently mitigate a variety of DDoS attacks without restricting or impacting normal service.
"More than ever, businesses need to protect themselves against massive and complex DDoS attacks. With these new capabilities in an intelligent mitigation system, we are equipping companies to engage key network capabilities to coordinate advanced protection simply and giving them the intelligence to adapt defenses actively and extend enforcement to the edge, allowing businesses to protect their critical services even under extreme attack conditions. By leveraging the intelligence and information inherent in the system, DDoS Secure is providing yet another capability in helping our customers build High-IQ Networks."
- Paul Scanlon, director of product management, Juniper Networks
"Demand for non-stop business services via high-availability networks is growing -- this includes protection from ongoing cyber attacks that can disrupt critical resources and threaten profitability. With new enhancements such as the MX integration to Juniper Networks' DDoS protection solution, Netrix is expanding our portfolio and service offerings to keep our customers' businesses secure and operational 24/7."
- Vladimir Gotsev, director of engineering, Netrix, Great Lakes region, Partner of the Year 2014
"Leveraging a single provider for DDoS mitigation and DNS availability can optimize network operations, streamline remediation and improve customer experience."
