Napatech Provides Insight Into Managing the Ongoing DDoS Threats Facing Network Security

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech, the world's leading supplier of network analysis adapters, today commented on reports from both Cisco and McAfee predicting a sharp rise in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks in 2014. Napatech is focused on addressing the security challenges facing enterprises today and proposes a holistic solution based on analysis of a combination of network and security information.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • As the use of cloud computing, big data analytics and mobility continue to soar, so will an increase in data traffic, changes in traffic patterns and the potential exposure of network vulnerabilities, including DDoS attacks. Cisco reports in its 2014 Annual Security Report that the occurrence of DDoS attacks have been increasing in both volume and severity, while McAfee reports that the deployment of cloud-based corporate applications will create new attack surfaces that will be exploited by cybercriminals.
  • Information from network and application monitoring appliances, already installed in the majority of networks, can be used to build a network profile of normal behavior. Through network behavior analysis and information on network and application usage, it is possible to detect anomalies in real time. This can be extended to include information from the network security appliances in a manner similar to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). In this manner, zero day threats can be detected and false positives verified.
  • As the leading OEM supplier of network adapter hardware, Napatech is in a unique position to enable flexible, scalable network application and security monitoring solutions. To ensure actionable, real-time information in the event of an attack on network security, Napatech has designed adapters that are able to scale with the number of CPUs supported, at speeds up to 40 Gbps. Additionally, multiple adapters of different port speeds can be installed on a standard server with all data merged to a single analysis stream. This data can then be distributed to multiple security programs—all of this accomplished without compromising CPU performance.

SUPPORTING QUOTE:
Dan Joe Barry, vice president of marketing, said:
"Cloud computing, big data analysis and mobility are fundamentally changing the way business is done with the promise of creating efficiencies. The ideal security solution must take into account the network vulnerabilities that are being introduced and defend against attacks without compromising efficiency. An effective, holistic security solution should identify where network security is lacking, monitor these critical points and ensure products can keep up with increasing speeds and data loads."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
