Fortinet is proud to announce that BGP Flowspec has now been incorporated into FortiDDoS This new functionality enables Service Providers to provide an effective solution to customers when a DDoS attack saturates their Internet links. Flowspec automates the coordination of traffic filtering by providing service providers with information that identifies specific packets to be dropped during a flood. Such a hybrid solution, combining a cost-effective FortiDDoS at the customer premises providing the first level of mitigation, with and a cloud-based scrubbing center providing volumetric attack mitigation, provides important benefits to customers impacted by these sorts of attacks.
