DDoS Appliances Gaining Traction

Fortinet recently launched four new appliances, and other companies are entering the space, including Defense.Net and its cloud-based Anti-DDoS capabilities. IPS vendors will claim DDoS protection, but the protection is often limited, he said. There are key industry verticals that need to invest in appliances, while others can solve the problem by going upstream to their ISP.
