Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber defense solutions provider, Corero, has announced the latest suite of enhancements to its SmartWall Threat Defense Director solution. The SmartWall Threat Defense Detector (TDD) has been updated to version 10.3 by Corero Network Security in joint cooperation with Juniper Networks.
The Juniper Networks MX Series Universal Routing Platform is used in conjunction with sophisticated software to counter DDoS attacks. The combined anti-DDoS solution provides automated, real-time detection and line-rate mitigation, scaling from 100 Gbps to 40 Tbps as a customer’s needs expand. Across the network edge, it uses always-on packet-level monitoring, automated machine analysis, and high-performance infrastructure-based enforcement.
“The newest enhancements to SmartWall TDD now make it easier than ever for customers to deliver automatic, real-time DDoS protection,” said Ashley Stephenson, CTO at Corero. “Our partnership with Juniper allows both Corero and Juniper to deploy an industry leading DDoS protection solution, leveraging their SDN-enabled MX Series routers and Corero’s software intelligence. These software enhancements enable us to deliver leading protection against the growing threat of DDoS.”
5G Networks, IP Intelligence Plug-In
Oversight of 5G networks with inspections of GTP network traffic and the IP Intelligence plug-in are among the new features and upgrades to this anti-DDoS solution. With a service portal and tenant awareness, services for defense against DDoS attacks are also accessible. With support for BGP rules and solutions from a range of vendors, the anti-DDoS solution would also allow for customizable network traffic control.
The latest SmartWall TDD version is capable of identifying DDoS attacks carried out by cell carrier users. This is made feasible by the new inspection function of the GPRS Tunneling Protocol communication. All mobile networks, including 5G networks, employ GTP. Mobile operators may now obtain the tunnel endpoint identification from the GTP header, bypass the GTP header, and analyze the network packets of encapsulated data using SmartWall TDD’s new functionality. Mobile carriers can use the IP Intelligence plug-in to determine the country and autonomous system number from which the DDoS attack originated.
Mobile carriers can identify malicious behavior, warn impacted customers, and stop DDoS attacks using the GTP payload and IP intelligence. As a result, providers can maintain their brand name while still providing DDoS protection to their customers.
