Corero strengthens DDoS protection for network edge and 5G with latest software release


Corero Network Security plc has recently announced the latest suite of enhancements to its award winning SmartWall Threat Defense Director solution.

These new capabilities make it easier than ever for Corero and Juniper customers to maintain business continuity with a cutting edge, automatic DDoS protection solution and deliver that as a value-added service to their downstream customers.

As DDoS attacks continue to grow in magnitude, frequency and sophistication, it is no longer good business practice to address this growing problem with traditional blackholing, out-of-band scrubbing centres, on-demand cloud services or manual intervention. To help bridge this gap, Juniper Networks and Corero Network Security continue their well-established, successful partnership, delivering a revolutionary new solution against DDoS attacks by leveraging Juniper Networks’ MX Series Universal Routing Platforms and SmartWall software intelligence.

This joint DDoS solution delivers an automatic, real-time, detection and line-rate mitigation solution which can scale from 100 Gbps to 40Tbps as a customer grows. It leverages always-on packet-level monitoring, automated machine analysis and high-performance infrastructure-based enforcement across the network edge.

Today we are highlighting some of the enhancements made to our SmartWall Threat Defense Director (TDD): 

  • Visibility into 5G mobile traffic for subscriber-side DDoS protection with GTP payload inspection
  • Attack source Geolocation and Autonomous System awareness IP intelligence Plug-in
  • DDoS protection as a service with multi-tenant Service Portal and Tenant-Awareness Plug-in
  • Flexible upstream Traffic Control with BGP policy for saturation prevention and multi-vendor support

“The newest enhancements to SmartWall TDD now make it easier than ever for customers to deliver automatic, real-time DDoS protection. Our partnership with Juniper allows both Corero and Juniper to deploy an industry leading DDoS protection solution, leveraging their SDN-enabled MX Series routers and Corero’s software intelligence. These software enhancements enable us to deliver leading protection against the growing threat of DDoS.” said Corero CTO, Ashley Stephenson.
