Secure DDoS protects the network and enhances resilience and availability under attack. Contact Cisco Security Sales today to add Cloud DDoS Protection to your Secure Choice Enterprise Agreement (EA).
Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks continue to become more frequent, more powerful, and more damaging. With the growing online availability of attack tools, the variants of possible attacks is now larger than ever.
Cisco DDoS protection solutions defend organizations against today’s most sophisticated DDoS attacks using advanced behavioral-based and machine learning algorithms to rapidly detect and mitigate both network-layer (L3/4) and application-layer (L7) attacks. Cisco DDoS mitigation solutions protect against encrypted SSL-based DDoS attacks without adding latency and use automatic, adaptive real-time protection to defend against zero-day attacks. Multiple deployment options, including cloud-based, CPE, and hybrid deployment options, offer solutions for every customer.
Learn how Cisco Secure DDoS Protection enhances business resilience, protects the network, and ensures availability under attack.
In today's digital economy, your online business must be available 24x7x365 to customers, partners, and employees.
Adaptive, behavioral-based algorithms block never-before-seen attacks with the lowest false positive rate in the industry.
Accurately distinguishes legitimate from malicious traffic, enabling advanced SLA and increasing service availability.
Comprehensive protection eliminates anomalous flows that consume network resources and impact application availability.
Choose the DDoS Protection coverage that suits you best.
On-demand, always-on, or hybrid? We give organizations the widest security coverage from today's DDoS attacks.
Options include WAF, threat intelligence, advanced analytics, SSL traffic inspection, cloud signaling and hybrid DDoS protection.
Protects against application layer attacks. Limited protection against volumetric attacks.
Best solution for customers that are at high risk of attacks and/or very sensitive to downtime.
Good for customers who have not yet been attacked and can tolerate brief outages.
Best overall solution for protection against application layer and volumetric attacks.

WAFs protect websites from application vulnerability exploits like SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery, session hijacking, and other web attacks. WAFs typically feature basic bot mitigation capabilities that block bots based only on IPs and fingerprinting.
Unfortunately, most WAFs often fall short when facing advanced, automated threats. Sophisticated next-gen bots mimic human behavior and often go undetected, abusing open-source tools or generating multiple violations in different sessions.
Against today’s sophisticated threats, standard WAF solutions just don’t get the job done.
