Radware DoS Secured Virtual Tenant Networks (VTN)
Enterprise data center IT managers, as well as IT managers in service providers, are moving services into cloud models that rely on virtual data center technologies to significantly reduce their overall costs while improving their business agility. Software Defined Network (SDN) technology removes legacy networking technology limitations while contributing to network abstraction, cost reduction, business agility and dynamic policy management – aligned with server virtualization trends.
In an era where DDoS attacks have become a major threat to online businesses and data centers, Radware and NEC join forces to embed DDoS protection service into SDN technology. The joint solution delivers an innovative breed of DDoS attack protection solutions with the following benefits:
• Fully virtualized, per tenant Anti-DoS solution service• State-of-the-art highly accurate attack detection and mitigation within seconds• Provisioned as a virtual service per tenant network
This paper introduces NEC ProgrammableFlow Network logical abstraction plane Virtual Tenant Networks (VTN), the evolution of DDoS attacks and Radware DefensePro attack mitigation solution. It then introduces an innovative solution for DoS secured VTN service that is based on Radware’s DDoS detection and mitigation engines integrated into NEC’s ProgrammableFlow SDN OpenFlow solution. Following a solution description, this paper summarizes the key advantages of the solution.
