WanGuard and WanSight provide full network traffic visibility by using distributed Sensors ("probes"), able to analyze IP packets, SNMP data and flow records exported by Cisco NetFlow, Huawei Netstream, Juniper jFlow, cflowd, sFlow and IETF IPFIX. All collected data are accessible in a rich, web-based user interface with custom dashboards, real-time traffic graphs and top listings. You can easily generate complex analytics with aggregated data for hosts, departments, interfaces, applications, autonomous systems, countries and more. You can view extremely accurate bandwidth graphs for hundreds of thousands of IP addresses.
WanGuard Sensor uses an extremely fast and highly innovative traffic anomaly detection engine that detects volumetric attacks by profiling the on-line behavior of users and by comparing over 120 live traffic parameters against user-defined thresholds. You can automate reactions to threats using predefined or custom modules that send notification emails, announce prefixes in BGP, generate SNMP traps, modify ACLs, execute your own scripts with access to over 70 operational parameters through an easy-to-use API, etc. DDoS attacks are detected using multi-vendor flow-based technologies or by sniffing IP packets.
WanGuard Filter ensures zero downtime for customers and services during Distributed Denial of Service attacks, without operator intervention. It defends against DDoS attacks by complementary methods: it cleans the malicious traffic on-premise when the upstream links are not congested, and null-routes attacked destinations in BGP to prevent bandwidth saturation and the subsequent network outage. Attacks are blocked by applying intelligent, dynamic filtering rules for stateless software or hardware firewalls. Dedicated packet scrubbing servers can be deployed in the main data path, or can perform side-filtering through traffic diversion.
The Flow Sensor provided by WanGuard and WanSight is a fully-featured flow analyzer and collector that supports all major flow technologies: NetFlow version 5, 7 and 9; IPFIX; sFlow version 4 and 5. It contains a highly scalable traffic correlation engine capable of continuously monitoring hundreds of thousands of IP addresses. Flows can be stored for as long as you wish in a compressed binary format. You can generate top listings and almost any other aggregation report you can think of. The extensive flow filtering expression options allow you to quickly query individual flows for ad-hoc forensic investigation.
Andrisoft develops two innovative and affordable Linux tools that are essential to Network and Security Professionals from companies operating large networks (Telecoms, Internet Service Providers, CDNs, Cloud Hosting Data Centers, DDoS Mitigation Services, etc.):
• WanGuard adds advanced DDoS detection and DDoS mitigation capabilities. It protects networks and critical services against Distributed Denial of Service and other "volumetric" attacks by scrubbing off malicious packets, with dynamic filtering rules applied on software or hardware firewalls, for inline or redirected traffic.
