24x7 Security Operations Center
Akamai’s 24x7 SOC provides global coverage for organizations around the world. In addition to detecting, analyzing, and mitigating developing attacks, Akamai SOC staff communicates and coordinates with organizations’ onsite staff and troubleshoots any abnormalities.
DoS and DDoS attack support
Kona DDoS Defender is a fully managed security service to help organizations respond to the threat of DoS and DDoS attacks. Akamai SOC staff augments adaptive rate controls to perform real-time analysis of ongoing attacks, tune existing rules and create custom rules as required, and adapt to changing attack vectors and multi-dimensional threats.
Broad DoS and DDoS attack protection
Kona DDoS Defender provides organizations with dynamic protection against a broad range of potential DoS and DDoS attack types, regardless of size and complexity, and even as they change over the course of an attack. Network-layer attacks, such as UDP and SYN floods, are automatically deflected, while application-layer attacks, such as HTTP GET and POST floods are absorbed at the network edge. In addition, Akamai SOC staff can help organizations mitigate zeroday Layer 7 attacks with custom rules.
