Mitigating DDoS Attacks

Prolexic has released a video visualization of how it mitigated a 160 Gbps, 120 million packets-per-second distributed denial of service attack which occurred earlier in the month against one of its clients.

Viewers can see how Prolexic routes malicious traffic through its scrubbing centers and sorts it by type of attack - be it on the infrastructure or at the application layer. The video shows how the DDoS mitigation service uses blocking signatures through automated mitigation gear and in real-time by engineers at the company.
