Denial of Service ProtectionBusiness protection for business as usual
Thwart DDoS attacks before they reach your network
Today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) are scaling in size and are capable of clogging the network with over 40GB of traffic.
AT&T DDoS Defense blocks and removes malicious traffic before it reaches your network to help thwart attacks -- regardless of size -- and keep business and revenue streams flowing. And all with the simplicity of a cloud-based solution.
AT&T DDoS Defense: Allowing clean traffic in, keeping malicious traffic out
With years of experience monitoring network traffic, AT&T is uniquely qualified to provide you with DDoS protection. Our security and network organizations work as a cohesive unit against threats to send only clean traffic to your site, as we:
- Detect the presence of an identified DDoS attack
- Block malicious packets in real-time, while allowing the flow of legitimate business traffic
- Stop denial of service traffic floods within the AT&T network, before they can choke your private network
- Notify you that attacks are occurring
- Apply proactive, not reactive, measures against malicious intruders and unauthorized activities
Avoid on-premises DDoS mitigation costs
Battling multi-vector denial of service attacks requires a full array of mitigation tools and security expertise, which could cost you millions to set up internally. As the network service provider delivering and managing your network traffic, and the owner and manager of the security infrastructure, AT&T can help you:
- Tap into a ready-made DDoS prevention environment to reduce CapEx
- Reduce labor costs with the support of more than 1,500 security experts in our Security Operation Center, who defend DDoS attacks every day
- Avoid "false positive" alerts that add to the cost and workload of internal staffs
Reduce bandwidth needs with cloud-based DDoS defense
Monitoring, analyzing and correlating security events requires large amounts of extra bandwidth. Instead of paying for that bandwidth capacity yourself, it may be more cost effective to turn over DDoS protection to AT&T. We can:
- Manage capacity-heavy DDoS protection in the AT&T network backbone
- Help avoid additional bandwidth costs each month just to accommodate "bad" traffic
- Provide flexible usage-based pricing tiers, based on hours of mitigation activity
