As service providers shift to the modern cloud and network function virtualization (NFV) architectures to roll out 5G and edge computing infrastructures, new generations of hyperscale distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), threats are emerging. DDoS attacks are increasing in size, complexity, and severity as malicious actors look to further exploit new cloud-based technological shifts. To protect themselves, service providers need virtual security solutions that offer flexible, robust defenses.
Leveraging Intel FPGA PAC N3000 F5's BIG-IP VE for SmartNICs solution is capable of withstanding DDoS attacks up to 300 times greater in magnitude than a comparable software-only solution—ensuring cloud networks are adequately protected against evolving DDoS threats.
