A10 Networks adds Zero-day Automated Protection(ZAP) capabilities to its leading Thunder Threat Protection System (TPS) family of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense solutions.

The ZAP capabilities automatically recognize the characteristics of DDoS attacks and apply mitigation filters without advanced configuration or manual intervention. This speeds the response to the increasingly sophisticated multi-vector attacks to minimize downtime and errors, and lower operating costs.

A10 Networks’ ZAP is comprised of two components: dynamic attack pattern recognition by a machine learning algorithm and heuristic behavior analysis recognition, to dynamically identify anomalous behavior and block attacking agents. ZAP works in conjunction with A10 Networks’ adaptive DDoS security model and its five-level adaptive policy mitigation engines to provide a complete in-depth defense system. This comprehensive approach blocks DDoS attacks while protecting legitimate users from indiscriminate collateral damage typically associated with traditional DDoS protection methods.

The ZAP policies can be enforced by a combination of hardware and software. Thunder SPE(Security and Policy Engine) appliances can serve up to 100,000 ZAP policies at line rate and the remaining ZAP policies can be served by software, claims A10 Networks.

The economics of DDoS mitigation and attacks are very much slanted towards the attackersnow, so we will need more efficient tools and advanced technologies to balance the equationto make DDoS defense more effective and economical.

Lee Chen, CEO, A10 Networks
In today’s climate with the dramatic increase in polymorphic multi-vector attacks and thechronic shortage of qualified security professionals, enterprises and service providers needintelligently-automated defenses that can accomplish tasks autonomously.
