Customers needing higher levels of visibility and protection against attacks can subscribe to Shield Advanced.

With Shield Advanced, customers can visualize, analyze, and protect the availability of Internet-facing resource essential to their business.

Customers are immediately alerted when attacks are detected and can use Shield Advanced analytics to understand their resiliency and automatic DDoS defense.

What challenges does the Shield team face?

  • 3) collect information about the attack type, size, sources and destination; (4) initiate automatic mitigations; and (4) build analytic reports to help customers visualize the attack and associated mitigations.

    Typical DDoS attacks involve thousands of source IPs transiting through thousands of routers, and this data must be quickly aggregated, analyzed, and reported to customers.

    The Shield team builds and maintains real-time and asynchronous data processing pipelines for continuous evaluation of the attacks.
