SiteProtect Next Generation DDoS Mitigation Service
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks represent a constant and persistent threat to the operations and security of every organization that has a digital presence. According to our 2017 research, an organization’s chance of suffering a DDoS attack is 80 percent, and when attacked, that same percentage can expect repeated assaults. But the damage doesn’t end there: Nearly half of reported attacks are conducted in concert with a breach, often leaving behind virus infections, data theft, malware activation, and now – ransomware attacks.
Mitigating the DDoS attacks of today and tomorrow requires more than just technology. SiteProtect Next Generation (NG) provides you with powerful analytics, top-tier DDoS mitigation, and layer 7 protection that allows you to suppress threats before they become attacks. Neustar NG is relied upon by companies of all sizes to keep their infrastructure and proprietary information safe and available.
More Than Bits and Bytes, It’s Business
In addition to business disruption and brand embarrassment, attackers can have many motives for launching assaults. DDoS assaults are commonly used to obscure and obstruct attempts to figure out who’s attacking, and what they’re going after. Such activity is referred to as a “smokescreen,” and in today’s world with so much at stake, you can’t take chances – it’s imperative to detect and defeat DDoS attackers as quickly as possible.
Neustar SiteProtect NG is the DDoS protection that your organization needs. Built on a massive global mitigation platform using best-of-breed technologies, time-proven best practices, and unparalleled expertise, Neustar delivers a top-tier solution leveraging three proven principles of DDoS protection.

Neustar SiteProtect NG is a purpose-built DDoS mitigation solution with deployment options to fit the needs of all organizations. Whether your requirements demand on-premise hardware, cloud-based, or hybrid mitigation capabilities, Neustar offers the broadest and most flexible array of DDoS protection services to fit you.
Compared to previous investment responses, it’s clear that organizations are realizing value in preparing before the strike. With options that include appliance, cloud, WAF, or hybrid combinations, Neustar SiteProtect NG provides effective DDoS mitigation.
SiteProtect NG Detection and Alerting
Avoiding the costly impact from DDoS attacks requires constant vigilance. To help alleviate the burden off of you and your team, Neustar offers quick Detection and Alerting capabilities. Detection and Alerting monitors and informs you of potential DDoS attacks and can automate mitigation based on alerts. Or, depending on your preference, you can automate the mitigation process to deliver high-velocity protection when you need it most.
A high-capacity, cloud-based DDoS protection service, Neustar SiteProtect NG scrubs malicious traffic away from your infrastructure, defusing the large, complex attacks that make headlines every day and threaten your operational stability. Powerful automation allows you to activate on-demand cloud protection through means that include DNS Redirection, BGP Redirection, and API-triggering. The result is incredibly fast response against DDoS trouble when you need it most.
Neustar offers several options to keep your traffic in an always-ready state, Always-Proxied, Always-Routed, and Always-Hybrid. Neustar SiteProtect NG Always-Hybrid features the best-inbreed Arbor APS DDoS mitigation appliance, which combats attacks locally, without a moment’s delay. When attacks exceed local capacity, Neustar fails over your traffic to the SiteProtect NG cloud and manages the response until the danger passes. Best of all, it is a fully managed service, including remote management of your Arbor box. Neustar monitors, detects and responds to DDoS attacks for you, so you can commit resources to higher priorities.
Neustar Web Application Firewall (WAF) and SiteProtect NG provide a true cloud-based Always-On approach to quickly stop the largest DDoS and most sophisticated web application threats without reducing network performance or adding additional levels of complexity to your existing security strategies.
The Neustar Advantage – Automation and Flexibility
Automation is the key to speed and it’s crucial to gaining an advantage against DDoS attackers – especially those with an appetite for breach. Flexibility is the ability to right size the DDoS protection investment. Since no two organizations have the same requirements, the Neustar combination of automation and flexibility helps tighten and exact defenses that mold to specific defense strategies – all while avoiding expensive customization and long deployment periods.
DNS/BGP Customer Triggered Mitigation
Standard configurations that allow a SiteProtect NG customer to automate mitigation in either DNS redirection or BGP connection service configurations. Attack traffic will spark mitigation for the targeted host reducing the time-to-mitigation and improving reaction times.
Available with Neustar’s standard on-demand BGP service and allows customers to call the SiteProtect NG API to begin their mitigation without intervention from Neustar. The ability for this API to be leveraged with other security services creates new potential stable state improvements and protective actions automatically.
Detection and Alerting Automated Mitigation
Customers direct their NetFlow data to Neustar for constant analysis and mitigation triggers automatically when an attack is detected. For those short on expertise and staff, this defense option provides a valuable extension to stretched security operations.
Cloud Signaling Triggered Automated Mitigation
Endpoint detection based upon bits per second and/or packets per second thresholds that, when exceeded, automatically initiates BGP redirection mitigation. The time to mitigation is instantaneous and throws back attackers the moment they strike.
