DDoS mitigation

Unanswered Question
Jan 8th, 2009

Hi everyone

On the Cisco ASR1002 spec sheet it mentions 'advanced DDoS' protection, but there isn't any more detail. Is this a substitute for a Guard or Guard module?


I have this problem too.

Cisco Guard DDoS mitigation appliances from Cisco Systems contribute to the industry's most complete and powerful family of solutions for detecting and defeating today's highly complex and sophisticated distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

The Guard is a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack mitigation device that diverts suspect traffic from its normal network path to itself for cleaning. During the traffic cleaning process, the Guard identifies and drops the attack packets and forwards the legitimate packets to their targeted network destinations

I believe Cisco Guard is EOL (?)

Also, a 6500 with Guard Module is overkill in terms of price and specifications for us.
