How We Help

DDoS Attack Mitigation

Out-of-the-box protection against DDoS attacks without endless configuration and rule management

Busy teams with few resources need solutions that provide value fast and don’t require on-going maintenance. ThreatX is purpose-built to help you do more with less. Deploy in minutes, with protection from day one to immediately block attacks. 

Once ThreatX is in place, you’ll be able to leave those sleepless nights behind. As a fully managed platform, our experts will have your back and ensure your websites and services remain protected.

Fully Managed, With 24/7 Support

Leave the details to our experts so you can focus on your most important projects

ThreatX is available as a fully managed service, to any customer. Our team of experts are available 24/7 to support any issues you face or answer questions you have. In addition to consultation, our managed services team helps our customers by: 

  • Actively monitoring for threats in real-time 
  • Alerting you to suspicious or malicious-looking anomalies 
  • Proactively responding to zero-day threats 
  • Quickly deploying and configuring ThreatX protection 

In-Depth DDoS Prevention and More

Defend against any threat targeting APIs and applications without managing multiple products

Simplify your stack and protect your APIs and applications against DDoS attacks.  

You’ve also got more to worry about than DDoS. Attackers are constantly changing tactics and finding new exploits; you should have protection that meets this challenge. With ThreatX in place, you’ll also be protected against all manner of attacks, including malicious bots, credential stuffing, account takeovers, along with standard OWASP and OWASP API Top Ten attacks. 

Our fully managed protection platform will allow you to protect more with less, and ensure your team isn’t left scrambling in response mode from one incident to the next.

Key Benefits

Secure APIs and applications with confidence, not complexity

Block attacks in real time with API and application protection you can trust 24/7 (without having to manage it yourself).
Block botnets and advanced attacks in real time

The ThreatX platform is always monitoring, assessing, and blocking attacks – automatically. It learns what threats to your system look like and stops them based on their risk level, so you can keep sites available and business humming.

Get your nights and weekends back

Stopping zero-day threats requires more than just software. You need real live people – but it doesn’t have to be you. Our expert team takes it on for you, so you don’t have to manage signatures or worry about false positives.

Ward off attacks with zero hand-holding

Onboard sites in under 15 minutes, not weeks. Block threats in an instant. And use simple dashboards that make it easy to see what’s going on.

Why do you need Managed DDoS protection solutions?

Savvy attackers know that they can map your applications to understand which pages or API calls consume resources such as memory, session handles, or CPU cycles. Armed with that information, they can design a sophisticated, multi-mode attack to consume resources, degrade your app’s performance, and generally muddy the waters while trying more pointed exploits. This is the outline of the modern distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) which requires DDoS protection that never sleeps!

How does ThreatX work?

ThreatX provides attack protection against complex, multi-mode attacks including API abuse, distributed botnets, and DDoS attempts by delivering real-time protection on a scalable platform. ThreatX defends organizations from many forms of modern DDoS attacks and is one of the key pillars of an attacker-centric security solution.

Our attacker-centric behavioral-based detection protects organizations from today’s increasingly prevalent Layer 7 (application-layer) DDoS attacks. ThreatX also has many customers that rely on our platform to scale and power protection against large-scale volumetric (Layer 3 and Layer 4) DDoS attacks.

ThreatX DDoS Protection solution – Key features

  • Sophisticated bot detection driven by behavioral analytics, active interrogation, and application analysis
  • Automated blocking driven by risk-based scoring that ensures both extremely low false positives and low false negatives
  • AI and ML single risk engine that detects and correlates threats across all API and web app assets by analyzing attacker behavior
  • Managed services and security operations assistance, to ensure our customers get the highest protection possible from the ThreatX platform
  • Real-time detection and blocking, deployed in-line as a reverse proxy to instantly stop DDoS attacks

Comprehensive Multi Layered Protection against multiple DDoS Attack vectors

Attackers will often throw all these attack types together, into a sophisticated multi-mode attack, spanning tens of thousands of bots. You need protection that covers all the bases.

Legacy, low-level DDoS attacks, such as:

  • Reflected ICMP & UDP attacks
  • ICMP and Ping floods
  • UDP floods
  • Mixed SYN + UPD or ICP + UDP floods
  • Ping of Death
  • ICMP Echo attacks, aka Smurfing

Layer 3 attacks:

  • TCP SYN+ACK floods
  • Bulk TCP resets
  • TCP ACK floods
  • TCL ACK + PSH attacks
  • TCP fragment attacks

Layer -7 attacks:

  • HTTP flood attacks
  • Connection floods
  • Zero-day exploits
  • CVE exploits

Behavioral attacks, including:

  • Suspicious or malicious bot traffic
  • Brute force
  • Spoofing
  • Teardrop attacks

Why ThreatX for DDos Protection?

ThreatX uses a combination of entity analysis, active interrogation, and application analysis to distinguish bots from true human visitors. It starts by tracking an entity’s behavior across many attempts, and if activity seems suspicious, ThreatX will engage with potential threats via active interrogation techniques like injecting fake fields or tarpitting traffic to see how the threat responds.

Other detection techniques allow for detailed fingerprinting and analysis of the host, and ongoing tracking allows the ThreatX platform to differentiate legitimate machine-to-machine communication from suspicious or malicious bot traffic.

Lastly, application analysis tracks how a threat is attempting to interact with an application. To detect and protect against large-scale botnet attacks — a powerful tool in DDoS attacks — ThreatX continuously analyzes the intensity of traffic to alert staff of any significant influxes of suspicious traffic and deliver seamless but effective DDoS protection.

DDoS Protection FAQs

Does ThreatX provide DDoS Protection service?

ThreatX also provides additional DDoS services for customers with high-bandwidth or service-level requirements. ThreatX partners with multiple enterprise-class L3/L4 DDoS providers with extremely large infrastructures capable of absorbing multiple-terabyte attacks. ThreatX actively manages these services through our 24×7 SOC, working with partners to identify and mitigate even the largest attacks in real time.

How does ThreatX protect against new DDoS attacks?

DDoS attacks are often unpredictable and, by design, they strike at the most inopportune times. All ThreatX DDoS services are supported in real time by a dedicated team of highly trained application security experts. This means that even as situations and adversary techniques change, the ThreatX team is on the job to diagnose problems and respond in real time.
