AT&T DDoS Defense
Defend against DDoS attacks
Maintain business continuity and keep your network running smoothly by detecting DDoS attacks – intended to disable infrastructure resources, application, and business - and mitigating them within the AT&T backbone network before the attack reaches your site.
The benefits of AT&T DDoS Defense
Improved Security Posture
By having countermeasures in place, like DDoS Defense, you minimize the impacts of attacks and expedite recovery, if necessary. You can thereby reduce risks to your operations.
Protection against volumetric DDoS
DDoS Defense works within the AT&T IP backbone network to filter out malicious traffic, and as a global service provider that sees large amounts of traffic as well as mitigates malicious activities on a daily basis, AT&T is well-positioned to help guard against network attacks.

Features and options
|On-Demand and Automatic Mitigation
|We perform detailed traffic analysis and can identify anomalies in near real time. After detection, the malicious traffic can be sent to scrubbing facilities in the AT&T backbone and blocked. If at any point you believe you're under attack, you can contact us to launch a mitigation]. AT&T also offers an optional Platform-Initiated Mitigation (PIM) feature to detect traffic anomalies faster using an automated, machine-based trigger to activate mitigation.
|24/7 Monitoring by AT&T's Threat Management Team
|AT&T’s Threat Management Team monitors your targeted data flows and validates or escalates alarms for mitigation as appropriate.

|DDoS Defense capabilities are available to customers on non-AT&T internet circuits within the U.S. so you can protect all of your traffic.
|Web portal access
|Through the web portal, you can easily access alert and mitigation summaries, anomaly reports, traffic information, email trap alerts, and consolidated security information. Conveniently located through the AT&T BusinessDirect® website, you can also maintain IP addresses for mitigation or make adjustments to authorized contacts.
|Unlimited and Unmetered Mitigations
|There is no limit on the number of mitigations a customer can have or no limit on the bandwidth size of an attack
|AT&T's multi-tiered pricing model offers cost-effective protections to fit your organization's budget requirements.
|Flexible Mitigation Activation
|Manual and pre-authorized mitigation trigger options let you choose how to trigger the mitigation process. With the manual trigger, we get authorization from your designated contact before we initiate mitigation. If you choose pre-authorized mitigation, AT&T starts mitigation as soon as we investigate an alert and confirm it as a DDoS attack. This option can reduce response times to attacks
