Network solutions vendor Juniper Networks has announced enhancements to its DDoS Secure solution that help companies mitigate complex attacks by more effectively leveraging security intelligence throughout the network fabric, taking them one step closer to building a High-IQ Network.
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 would be enabling this capability with the product enhancements announced.
DNS Inside-Out Attack Protection
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 would provide enterprises and hosting 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 hosting service provider’s customers.
