DDoS appliances (also known as DDoS protection appliances or DDoS mitigation appliances) are hardware-based scrubbing solutions that are installed in data centers to defend against DDoS attacks. In combination with automated attack detection via flow monitoring, DDoS appliances can react to anomalies in data traffic in the shortest possible time and filter harmful traffic before an impact occurs on the operating company's servers.
Depending on the setup, a DDoS appliance can initiate mitigation automatically or manually. Automated mitigation involves attack detection via flow monitoring. The data traffic is analyzed in real time and mitigation is triggered if predefined thresholds are exceeded – the limits are determined by bandwidth and packet rate. Manual mitigation can be initiated via the DDoS appliance's Web-GUI. In some scenarios, this procedure is advantageous: for example, in the case of announced attacks as part of blackmail attempts. Manual connection is also recommended if an event that is particularly worthy of protection (live streams, shopping events and the like) takes place at connected end customers.
The use of a DDoS appliance enables data center operators to provide dedicated DDoS protection via Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for all customers – regardless of their network size. Established BGP protection solutions such as Myra Cloud Scrubbing require at least one or more /24 networks for mitigation. External mitigation outside the provider network is therefore not conceptually possible for smaller customer networks. This limitation can be circumvented by using a DDoS appliance directly in the data center.
