DDoS mitigation

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?

Thanks

Re: DDoS mitigation

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

Re: DDoS mitigation

I believe Cisco Guard is EOL (?)

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