The Firewall Session Intelligence built into a typical TG8 firewall stops DoS/DDoS attacks at the network edge.
The typical firewall today, uses session tables to manage DoS/DDoS attacks, which can become saturated by the attack’s flood, bringing the firewall down. TG8, on the other hand, uses an innovative rules-based policy to manage DoS/DDoS attacks, making the firewall immune to these nefarious attacks.
Volumetric and Non-Volumetric
A DoS/DDoS attack can come in one of two forms: Volumetric, which aims to saturate your bandwidth to bring your network down, and non-Volumetric, which aims to overwhelm your firewall’s resources resulting in a network down situation. TG8’s firewalls are immune to non-Volumetric invasions including SYN attacks and DNS poisoning.
