Vancouver, Canada-based DOSarrest Internet Security has released a new version of its Cyber Attack Preparation Platform (CAPP). CAPP is a serve yourself portal allowing customers to test their DDoS protection services they have in place or to stress test their website’s software capability under load.
The new service from DOSarrest has over 50 different types of DDoS attacks in stock. The latest version is a completely new software build of the backend to accommodate a larger and more powerful botnet along with resource management.
This version of the DOSarrest Cyber Attack Preparation Platform has a new “easy-to-use” Wizard to help customers navigate and launch multiple different DDoS attacks on multiple targets simultaneously. The customer interface is also integrated into DOSarrest’s customer portal along with all of their other Internet security services.
“It’s interesting to see how different systems react to attacks; CAPP not only shows you the traffic to the victim but also shows you the traffic response from the victim,” said Jag Bains CTO of DOSarrest. “A small attack to a target can actually produce a response back that’s 500 times larger. Every time a customer uses the service, they learn something new, sometimes it’s bad news; the good news is, it’s only a test.”
Simulated DDoS attacks Available
Some of the new DDoS attacks now available include: SSL Connection Overload, GRE Protocol Floods, Database Stress Testing, Variable ICMP Type Floods & Advanced TCP Table Exhaustion, Enhanced HTTP Attacks – Able to randomize User agents, URI’s, referrers and much more, all with a high number of concurrent connections.
“Pretty much all of the new attacks and enhancements are a result of customer feedback over the last few years of operating the service first launched in 2018,” said Mark Teolis, CEO of DOSarrest. “Customers know they have weak or overcommitted resources, and they want test them to make sure they don’t fail.”
