Deploy and Scale DDoS Protection in the Public Cloud

Until today, companies worried if their DDoS attack protection was powerful enough to absorb and protect against different sizes of DDoS attacks. Now, they can exhale with relief.

Thanks to new developments in AWS — the Gateway Load Balancer (GWLB)– companies can enjoy our DDoS protection for their public cloud workloads at scale and without having to worry about licensing requirements and sufficient computing powers.  This allows them to protect automatically against both low volume attacks and the largest volumetric attacks.

Why Cloud Security is Paramount

As network architectures get more complex, there is added pressure to secure the new points of attack vulnerability. Cloud environments introduce a significantly large attack surface that requires protection from cyberattacks.

To complicate matters, the onset of the pandemic forced companies to fast-track the migration of digital assets to the cloud. In doing so, they also inadvertently increased the attack surfaces from which hackers can try to disrupt and DDoS attack their data and applications.

Indeed, organizations face a multitude of threats and attacks daily. And make no mistake, it is a struggle to scale security infrastructures at the same pace as technological advances implemented inside networks, especially when timelines were accelerated by the pandemic.

The Benefits of At-Scale Protection

One of the biggest issues companies face when moving to the public cloud is the necessary calculation of their future computing resources usage (bandwidth) for their DDoS protection. In the best-case scenarios, they find themselves overpaying for unnecessary computing powers. And in the worst-case scenarios, they are unprepared and ill-equipped against large, disrupting attacks without having enough protection bandwidth.

GWLB’s new auto-scaling capability eliminates the guesswork related to licensing and reserving computer resources. So, customers benefit from better cost management, without needing to worry about overpaying, while also having the best protection for DDoS attacks, regardless of attack size. Our customers can now enjoy the full spectrum of DefensePro VA capabilities without assuming the future needed license.

Moreover, this at-scale capability also ensures availability and service delivery even when the worst happens. As with all online resources, sometimes they fail due to misconfiguration, load balancing faults, network congestions, and other unseen problems.

Exactly for this reason, DefensePro VA now has the capability of auto-recovery for continuous availability and the best protection service delivery, even when unpredictable errors occur.

So Let’s Cut to the Chase

With Radware DefensePro VA for AWS, companies can now get the best auto-scaled DDoS protection in the market for their public cloud workloads. Thanks to GWLB’s latest development, these companies enjoy auto-scaling capabilities to eliminate guesswork, remove overpaying and over licensing, and of course, constant DDoS mitigation capabilities against all attack sizes
