Manual thresholds are simple rules that alert when traffic with specific characterestics reaches undesirable point. Administrators are notified in advance so they can take appropriate actions and stay ahead of problems.
Flowmon DDoS Defender natively supports all the major vendors in the scrubbing centre market. The configuration itself is a matter of picking the vendor's name from a drop-down menu. Integration with the vendor is always kept up to date.
When an event has been detected, Flowmon creates attack partners and injects them as rules to routers, which can then redirect, forward, drop or rate-limit traffic and more. Rules can be manually adjusted at any given point and all the changes are automatically reverted back after the attack ends.
Clear the pipe from most illegitimate traffic with BGP Flowspec and then redirect the rest into your scrubbing centre. This directly lowers performance and bandwidth requirements on your scrubbing technologies.
All actionable scenarios may be triggered automatically under the full supervision of an engineer, who can decide to revert the changes or modify mitigation rules at any given point. The process can also be carried out manually.
