DDoS Attack and Mitigation Monitoring

DDoS attacks can severely cripple critical applications.
ThousandEyes gives you visibility into ongoing attacks,
mitigation strategies and external network performance.

Understand Attacks from an Outside-In Perspective

Whether you're using a cloud-based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation service or an on-site mitigation strategy, external visibility is essential. ThousandEyes visualizes the impact of an ongoing DDoS attack, shows the effectiveness of your response and records performance data for real-time sharing and detailed forensics.

Track DDoS Attacks from Start to Finish

Get an external perspective into your application's performance during a DDoS attack. Combining data from
Cloud Agents, locate which geographies have lower availability and which networks are stressed to their limit.

Track Your Mitigation Strategy

Verify the traffic handoff to your
mitigation service with visibility
into DNS or BGP.

Get Attack Visibility

During the attack, get deep insight into whether the mitigation techniques being used are working.

Speed Up Resolution

Collaborate with external ISPs and mitigation vendors in real-time to resolve any issues.

Understand Paths and Congestion

DDoS attacks put large strains on your network and the upstream networks that you rely on. Quickly locate
packet loss, high latency links and overloaded scrubbing centers that impact your application performance.

Find the Weak Link

Clearly see what is being stressed: DNS, ISP networks, edge routers or an overloaded app server. See the effects of the UltraDNS DDoS.

See Scrubbing Performance

Identify underperforming elements within your mitigation vendor, such as overloaded scrubbing centers or misrouted traffic.

Perform Detailed Forensics

Easily correlate this information against baseline behavior,
compare time periods and
save data for later forensics.
