"Outdated information and limited customer visibility into a vendor's DDoS mitigation efforts can increase downtime due to a DDoS attack," said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. "Web portals are a strategic decision-making tool, and businesses need to be rigorous in evaluating the offerings of DDoS mitigation providers."

The DDoS mitigation portal infographic recommends that businesses focus on six key areas when evaluating a mitigation provider's web portal:

  • Access from mobile devices
  • Log-in security
  • Data refresh rate
  • Network visibility
  • Real-time analytics
  • DDoS forensics and intelligence

  • According to Scholly, a high-quality web portal should play a critical role in DDoS mitigation vendor selection and DDoS defense. "A robust DDoS defense requires the mitigation provider and customer work together in a coordinated way. When the customer can see the same network and DDoS attack data as the mitigation provider at the same time, it allows for more informed decision making and faster mitigation," he said.
