Corero SmartWall DDoS Protection Solution
The SmartWall DDoS Protection Solution can be deployed in a number of ways to best fit your infrastructure and protection needs.
There are two main deployment models for the core SmartWall components:
- SmartWall Threat Defense System (SmartWall TDS) – SmartWall TDS uses appliances deployed at the edge of your network to protect your internal resources from DDoS attack traffic. It comprises of three main components: Defense devices (with optional zero-power bypass protection), the SmartWall Central Management Server (CMS), and SmartWall SecureWatch Analytics (SWA).
- SmartWall Threat Defense Director (SmartWall TDD) – SmartWall TDD works together with Juniper Networks® routers to filter out DDoS attack traffic at the edge of your network, without needing to deploy additional appliances at every protected location. It comprises of four main components: Edge routers, Defense devices (acting as Detection Engines for the routers), the SmartWall Central Management Server (CMS), and SmartWall SecureWatch Analytics (SWA).
The following Corero components are also available and can be deployed with a SmartWall TDS or SmartWall TDD solution:
- SmartWall Threat Defense Cloud (SmartWall TDC) – SmartWall TDC enables your inbound traffic to be automatically routed via a cloud scrubbing center when an attack becomes large enough that it could overwhelm your available internet bandwidth.
- SmartWall Service Portal (Service Portal) – The Service Portal enables you to offer DDoS-Protection-as-a-service to your customers, providing each with their own portal access to view only their attack information. Each customer can be assigned a specific mitigation level and receive attack alerts and scheduled reports.
Note: Some of the documentation you receive will be tailored to your specific solution, but as some applications are generic you may see the options for other solutions shown in the guides. There are other non-Corero components that can be attached to the Threat Defense System.
