Fortinet has introduced the FortiDDoS product family for enterprises, Web hosting and cloud service providers. The new FortiDDoS-100A, FortiDDoS-200A and FortiDDoS-300A are appliances that are designed to detect and help protect against DDoS attacks. The appliances feature custom ASICs that are capable of mitigating DDoS attacks.
“DDoS attacks aren’t just an annoyance and minor inconvenience. They are a serious problem that could cause significant liability to businesses today. The damage from a DDoS attack can include loss of revenue, loss of customer confidence, loss of brand equity and potentially huge legal liabilities. A FortiDDoS appliance installed in front of a network infrastructure can act as a shield against DDoS attacks,” said Michael Xie, Chief Technology Officer & Vice-President, Engineering, Fortinet.
“FortiDDoS appliances are easy to deploy and manage, and are designed to recognize today’s attack vectors and deliver hardware-accelerated performance to block attacks quickly,” said Hemant Jain, Vice-President, Engineering, Fortinet.
