A premiere here, a rant-free post.
Just a bit of free advertising for a nice product. I’ve been using it for a while now and the only gripe I have with it is that the developer does not advertise it more.
In order to be able to respond to DDoS attacks in a timely manner you need to be able to detect them as quick as possible. If you ever need a really, and I mean really fast DDoS detection engine, try Packetdam (www.packetdam.com). No matter how much other vendors who wanted to sell us something tried to compete with it, they always failed at detection speed.
Don’t take my word for it, go grab a evaluation build and test it. If you have questions the supplier is nice and quick to answer.
