Attack Mitigation System (AMS) is the first solution of its kind that detects and mitigates denial of service (DoS) and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that are SSL encrypted .. Today's anti-DoS security solutions do not effectively mitigate HTTP-encrypted DoS and DDoS attacks. Through patent-pending technology, Radware's AMS is the only network security solution with the ability to protect against high rate, SSL-based, Web-encrypted DoS and DDoS attacks, in both symmetric and asymmetrical network traffic environments that typify today's anti-DoS scrubbing and cleaning centers".
Avi Chesla (pictured), Radware's CTO, said: "Recently, we have seen some powerful DoS and DDoS attacks that took advantage of the encrypted SSL traffic, targeting firms that depend on secured online transactions such as financial institutions, government agencies, social networking companies and others. Any organization that relies on SSL-based traffic without a proper decryption engine working in synch with an attack mitigation solution is exposing itself to great risk".
