The Cisco® Traffic Anomaly Detector Module is an integrated services module for Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series switches and Cisco 7600 Series routers that helps large organizations protect against distributed denial of-service (DDoS) attacks or other network attacks by enabling users to quickly initiate mitigation services and block the attacks before business is adversely affected.
Based on a unique, patented multiverification process architecture, the Cisco Traffic Anomaly Detector Module (Figure 1) uses the latest behavioral analysis and attack recognition technology to proactively detect and identify all types of online attacks. By constantly monitoring traffic destined for a protected device, such as a Web or e-commerce application server, the Cisco Traffic Anomaly Detector Module compiles detailed profiles that indicate how individual devices behave under "normal" operating conditions. If the Cisco Traffic Anomaly Detector Module detects any per-flow deviations from the profile, it considers the anomalous behavior a potential attack and responds based on user preference-by sending an operator alert to initiate a manual response, by triggering an existing management system, or by launching the Cisco Anomaly Guard Module to immediately begin mitigation services.
