DDoS Attack Mitigation - FortiDDoS

The FortiDDoS family of purpose-built appliances provide real-time network visibility in addition to detection and prevention of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. FortiDDoS helps protect internet-facing infrastructure from threats and service disruptions by surgically removing network and application-layer DDoS attacks. It defends critical on-premise and cloud infrastructure from attacks while relying on sophisticated filtering technologies to allow legitimate traffic to continue to flow. These scalable, high-performance appliances deliver proven DDoS defenses, and are completely interoperable with existing security technologies and network infrastructure.

Fortinet has allowed us to bring our network security services in-house rather than spending money for an outsourced vendor to manage the network. A unified security solution works best for us, as we have a relatively small technical team. The FortiGate solution helps us to manage our time, skills and on-going costs more effectively. Because of our Fortinet deployment, we are expecting to save $1.5 million in network security costs over the next three years.
