How Does Prolexic Routed Work?

Prolexic Routed is designed to stop DDoS attacks in the cloud, before they reach your applications, data centers, and infrastructure. Network traffic is redirected through Akamai scrubbing centers by making a simple border gateway protocol (BGP) route advertisement change. Akamai offers two deployment options ― always-on is ready to mitigate malicious traffic at all times, and on-demand allows you to redirect traffic when you’re under attack.

Prolexic Routed is built on a DDoS mitigation platform with 20 global scrubbing centers, closer to users and attackers to minimize performance latency and improve network resiliency. Traffic is routed through the closest available scrubbing center, and proactive mitigation controls are architected to drop attacks instantly. Akamai SOC experts analyze the remaining DDoS traffic to quickly and efficiently apply the most appropriate mitigation for every attack vector. Clean traffic is then forwarded to your applications and data centers, and outbound traffic returned directly to users.
