Quadrant Knowledge Solutions Market Insights research provides detailed information about how using BGP FlowSpec in DDoS solutions is helping to enhance organizational tech security.
As organizations are moving towards digital transformation, they are increasingly dependent on the internet. This increased dependence on the internet is introducing organizations to challenges like DoS and DDoS attacks. A DDoS attack is one of the most common types of cyberattacks where the attacker damages organizations by targeting and crashing organizational networks, servers, websites, and IP addresses. The attacker employees’ random hosts and installs software into laptop to target any particular organization. BGP FlowSpec can help overcome these threats. BGP FlowSpec is an alternative and upgraded version of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), which is an essential networking protocol that helps to communicate between independent networks and enables organizations to mitigate DDoS attacks in less time.
Benefits of integrating BGP FlowSpec in DDoS Mitigation:
- One-click Access, Easy-to-use
- Fast detection and mitigation
- Granular control
- Real-time attack alert
- Superior defense performance
- Zero Packet Loss (ZPL)
According to Sachin Birajdar, Senior Research Analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, “DDoS attacks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated, leading organizations to adopt newer solutions like BGP FlowSpec. BGP FlowSpec offers comprehensive features for filtering, dropping, or redirecting traffic and reducing attack rates. It is considered highly effective in combating DDoS attacks and is integrated into products from major vendors like Cisco, Juniper, Arista, and Nokia. The integration of BGP FlowSpec and DDoS Mitigation is gaining popularity among organizations seeking improved security features.”
