Mike Geller from Cisco’s CTO office and Ehud Doron of Radware’s CTO office presented at Cisco Live Berlin 2016 the revolutionary concept of Network-as-a-Sensor to fight DDoS attacks.

There are two approaches to detect against DDoS attacks: on-premise (also sometimes called in-line) and Cloud (out of path). When a DDoS protection solution is deployed on-premise, organizations benefit from an immediate and automatic attack detection and DDoS mitigation solution. Within seconds from the start of an attack, the online services are well protected and the attack is mitigated.
