Reduce downtime and business risk
Flow-based Monitoring is a monitoring service capable of detecting DDoS attacks on the first stages. Keeping a constant vigilance on accesses to your platform, this solution alerts you to traffic outside of the usual profile. Thus, you can seize the advantage of defending yourself from this kind of attacks before they can cause real damage.
Organizations increasingly interact with customers, employees, and partners through a myriad of web and IP-based applications. Disruptions to these applications can have a serious impact on the bottom line, making them attractive targets for attackers.
Whether planning for the inevitable or actively mitigating an attack, organizations need fast, simple, and effective protection from the broadest range of DDoS attacks in order to defend their online presence, maintain employee productivity, and safeguard their infrastructure.
Some of the biggest brands in the world – many of which are targeted for attack on a regular basis, trust Akamai’s Web Security solutions to protect their online presence.
Prolexic Flow-Based Monitoring provides early detection and notification of network-layer DDoS attacks by directly monitoring network traffic through your organization’s edge routers. With Prolexic Flow-Based Monitoring, organizations can rely on Akamai’s 24x7 security Operations Center (SOC) to detect anomalies, perform impact analyses, and proactively notify your staff of a potential DDoS attack.
How it Works
With Prolexic Flow-Based Monitoring, Akamai’s 24x7 SOC monitors your edge routers to build a profile of your normal network traffic and update that profile as traffic patterns changes over time. Drawing on that knowledge, SOC staff can immediately identify significant deviations from your profile as they occur, analyze anomalies, and alert you of any DDoS attack.
- Network-layer DDoS detection: Early detection and notification of volumetric network-layer DDoS attacks, including SYN floods, UDP floods, and ICMP floods
- Non-intrusive network monitoring: Directly monitor your Internet edge routers to avoid the need for additional hardware in the traffic flow and minimize any potential impact to services. View historical traffic levels for specified IP ranges.
- 24x7 Security Operations Center: Akamai continuously monitors your network traffic, analyze anomalies, and alert you of DDoS attacks from our 24x7 SOC
