NSFocus: Micron21 Detects and Mitigates DDoS Attack Using Anti-DDoS System

August 28, 2014

NSFocus reported that its Anti-DDoS System (ADS) was instrumental in assisting Australian Data Center Micron21 in detecting and mitigating a DDoS threat, named by Micron21 as a Combination Distributed Reflective Denial of Service (CDRDoS).

According to a release from the company, CDRDoS takes DRDoS attacks to the next level: On August 2, Micron21 detected a threat that targeted one of its customers and reached speeds of 40+gbits internationally and over 1.2gbits domestically within Australia.

CDRDoS uses a combination of UDP attack vectors simultaneously, from a single attack tool. This includes NTP, DNS, SSDP and CHARGEN reflection amplification traffic that targets a single host. The company suspects the addition of SNMP will be added to further increase attack capacity in the near future.

In response to ongoing threats, the company said Micron21 expanded its portfolio to include a DDoS Protection as a Service program in early 2013. The company provides a variety of data scrubbing options for its clients and has integrated the ADS family of products into its service model to assist them in the detection and mitigation of DDoS threats.

Terence Chong, solutions architect, NSFocus, said, "In order to stay ahead of the ongoing threats perpetrated by aggressive hacker groups, hosting providers and Internet data centers are looking for solutions that not only protect customer data but also their own brand reputation. Micron21 is a perfect example of how data centers can supplement their offerings by incorporating DDoS Mitigation as a Service to increase ROI and ensure customer loyalty."

James Braunegg, managing director of Micron21 Datacentre, said, "By proactively monitoring our infrastructure and customer networks, we can provide around-the-clock protection and support to adapt to threats dynamically as they occur, with real-time visibility. The integration of the NSFocus anti-DDoS system into our platform allows our staff to monitor, react and resolve issues within seconds of being alerted to any threat across our network."

NSFocus is a global provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation solutions.
