Modern DMZ cyber-defense must defend against two critical security challenges: volumetric DDoS attacks and threats embedded in encrypted traffic.
• Today’s attackers are leveraging compromised IoT devices to generate large-scale DDoS attacks. A next-generation cyber-defense solution to defend from such massive and complex attacks requires a software-defined, scale-out architecture. Big Switch Networks and A10 networks have partnered on an SDN-driven security architecture, BigSecure, that leverages Big Monitoring Fabric and A10 Thunder TPS to deliver dynamic, scale-out mitigation for high-bandwidth DDoS attacks.
• In addition, to defend against attacks embedded in SSL traffic, the joint solution with A10 Thunder SSLi and Big Monitoring Fabric offers visibility into SSL encrypted traffic while providing seamless security service chaining and streamlining NetOps/SecOps change management workflows.
