Secure Cloud DDoS available in Secure Choice EA

Secure DDoS protects the network and enhances resilience and availability under attack. Contact Cisco Security Sales today to add Cloud DDoS Protection to your Secure Choice Enterprise Agreement (EA).

Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks continue to become more frequent, more powerful, and more damaging. With the growing online availability of attack tools, the variants of possible attacks is now larger than ever.

Cisco DDoS protection solutions defend organizations against today’s most sophisticated DDoS attacks using advanced behavioral-based and machine learning algorithms to rapidly detect and mitigate both network-layer (L3/4) and application-layer (L7) attacks. Cisco DDoS mitigation solutions protect against encrypted SSL-based DDoS attacks without adding latency and use automatic, adaptive real-time protection to defend against zero-day attacks. Multiple deployment options, including cloud-based, CPE, and hybrid deployment options, offer solutions for every customer.

Why Cisco Secure DDoS Protection?

In today's digital economy, your online business must be available 24x7x365 to customers, partners, and employees.

Zero-day DDoS protection

Adaptive, behavioral-based algorithms block never-before-seen attacks with the lowest false positive rate in the industry.

Highest availability under attack

Accurately distinguishes legitimate from malicious traffic, enabling advanced SLA and increasing service availability.

Data center efficiency

Comprehensive protection eliminates anomalous flows that consume network resources and impact application availability.

The first stop in protecting your edge

Choose the DDoS Protection coverage that suits you best.

Cloud DDoS

On-demand, always-on, or hybrid? We give organizations the widest security coverage from today's DDoS attacks.

On-premises DDoS

Options include WAF, threat intelligence, advanced analytics, SSL traffic inspection, cloud signaling and hybrid DDoS protection.

DDoS on Firepower

Cisco Firepower 4100 Series and 9300 appliances have enterprise-grade DDoS mitigation capabilities with Virtual DefensePro (vDP).

Flexible deployment options


Protects against application layer attacks. Limited protection against volumetric attacks.

  • Behavioral real-time detection and mitigation
  • Deploy
    • Inline
    • Out-of-path
    • Smart tap
    • Scrubbing center
  • SSL mitigation


Best solution for customers that are at high risk of attacks and/or very sensitive to downtime.

  • Traffic always routed through Radware’s scrubbing center
  • Real-time attack detection and mitigation


Good for customers who have not yet been attacked and can tolerate brief outages.

  • DDoS detection based on:
    • NetFlow statistics
    • Arbor TMS messages
    • AWS and Azure telemetry
  • Traffic diverted only in case of volumetric attacks


Best overall solution for protection against application layer and volumetric attacks.

  • ntegrated: On-premises mitigation appliances with on-demand cloud protection
  • Real-time detection and mitigation
  • Traffic diverted to cloud upon pipe saturation

WAFs protect websites from application vulnerability exploits like SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery, session hijacking, and other web attacks. WAFs typically feature basic bot mitigation capabilities that block bots based only on IPs and fingerprinting.

Unfortunately, most WAFs often fall short when facing advanced, automated threats. Sophisticated next-gen bots mimic human behavior and often go undetected, abusing open-source tools or generating multiple violations in different sessions.

Against today's sophisticated threats, standard WAF solutions just don't get the job done.

Collective bot intelligence (IPs, fingerprints, behavioral patterns) Yes No Yes
Customized actions against suspicious bot types Yes No Yes
Protection for OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities No Yes Yes
Protection from API vulnerabilities Limited Yes Yes
Protection for Layer 7 denial of service (DoS) Limited Yes Yes
HTTP traffic inspection No Yes Yes
Masking of sensitive data No Yes Yes
Compliance with HIPAA, PCI Limited Yes Yes
Integration with DevOps No Yes Yes
Blocking of malicious sources at the network level - access control list (ACL) No Yes Yes
