DOSarrest releases new Simulated DDoS Attack platform
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DOSarrest Internet Security announced today that they have released a new Service offering called Cyber Attack Preparation Platform (CAPP). This new service allows customers to login to the CAPP portal and launch DDoS attacks on their own internet assets to see how they’re existing defenses stand up to real world attacks.
This new service enables anyone to choose from a wide variety of stock TCP and HTTP attacks some developed in house and some taken from the wild by DOSarrest over it’s 11 year history in protecting against DDoS attacks. There are over 40 different attacks to choose from, some TCP attacks can generate up to 80 Gb/sec of malicious TCP spoofed traffic, others offer more complex HTTP attacks.
Other major capabilities include;
- Choose from any or all 5 attack source regions
- Control the intensity of every bot in the botnet
- Control the size of the botnet from every attack source region
- View real time traffic to and from the source and target
- Other variables include specific target URL’s, packet size, TCP or HTTP port
- Instant kill button, stops any attack in progress in seconds
CEO of DOSarrest, Mark Teolis states, “We have been using a simulated DDoS attack system for a few years now but our present customers and non-customers alike want to operate the system on their own and see the results. Now they can.”
DOSarrest CTO, Jag Bains comments, “It’s interesting to see how different systems react to attacks, CAPP not only shows you the traffic to the victim but also shows you the traffic response from the victim. A small attack to a target can actually produce a response back that’s 500 times larger.” Bains adds, “This is the best tool I’ve seen to fine tune your cyber security defenses, if you fail you can make changes and launch the exact same attack again, to see if you can stop the attack.”
