“This strength and duration of these recent L7 DDoS attacks are not seen before. They show a disturbing trend that such attacks are escalating quickly and more difficult to defend than ever.” said Bin Ni, CTO of CDNetworks. “With over 2800 edge PoPs  deployed worldwide and its huge bandwidth reserve, CDNetworks can promptly identify and took protective actions against DDoS attacks of any level.”

The CDNetworks edge security system analyzes all the incoming traffic in real time to identify attacks. The majority of the attacks are blocked at L4 to most efficiently use the network bandwidth and computing power. Its CDN Pro user interface also allows configuration of custom rules to reject malicious requests at L7 and feedback the intelligence to the security system to benefit the entire edge product line. More innovative technologies are being developed to ensure the high availability and reliability of your business running on the CDNetworks edge.
