Netography Emerges With Autonomous Flow-Based DDoS Defense Service
February 07, 2019 / Sean Michael Kerner
Cyber-security startup Netography emerged from stealth on Feb. 7 with a new technology approach to help organizations defend against the risk of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. DDoS attacks typically involve large volumes of attack bandwidth that overwhelm services, rendering them unavailable. Defending against DDoS is, however, about more than simply having more bandwidth available than an attacker. Netography's approach brings together threat intelligence with a deep understand of network flow protocol data to help organizations identify potential threats and then implement the right types of Access Control Lists (ACLs) to limit risk. "The secret sauce of DDoS defense companies in general is all based on how well you can see the telemetry of your network and how well you can manage that information," Barrett Lyon, CEO of Netography, told eWEEK.
