Kentik DDoS Detection and Defense


Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have been a continuous threat since the advent of the commercial internet. It’s an asymmetrical war where $30 attacks can cost companies thousands, or be a smokescreen for something worse. In addition to ever-larger traffic volumes, attackers are also increasing their target diversity, with attack traffic simultaneously spanning data, applications, and infrastructure to increase the chances of success.

Legacy tools cannot provide deep network details or real-time forensic visibility; as threats escalate, your best engineers are bogged down by blind manual interventions that contribute no positive outcomes. Kentik DDoS Detection and Defense leverages powerful network analytics and insights to deliver a detailed picture of your traffic, serving to identify and mitigate DDoS attacks in real-time. This service protects organizations’ networks and ensures business continuity.
