FortiDDoS Attack Mitigation appliances use 100% behaviour-based attack detection methods, compared to competitors that rely primarily on signature-based matching. Instead of using pre-defined signatures to identify attack patterns, FortiDDoS builds a baseline of normal activity and then monitors traffic against it. Custom ASICs stop more types of attacks.
