    Skybox Security Solutions

    Simulated DDoS Network Attacks and Network Intrusions

    Customer Challenge:
    Large corporations often hire consultants to conduct quarterly penetration (DDoS)
    testing on specific segments of their corporate network. This testing can cost over
    hundreds of thousands of dollars, and also exposes the network to many potential
    disruptions. These disruptions are the result of the intense DDoS attacks testers
    can impose on live networks in order to isolate vulnerabilities and weaknesses.
    Since the network is constantly changing, and DDoS attacks are rarely dispersed
    from a centralized location, the penetration test results often become nullified and
    end up being limited to a small portion of the total network.

    The Skybox Solution:
    Skybox Security performs accurate and non-intrusive DDoS attacks across a larger
    portion of the corporate network. The tests are modeled and analyzed through an
    automated process via our large botnet network rather than manually performed on a
    live network. As a result, the tests are repeated rigorously on a scheduled basis
    without any fear of network disruption. Through DDoS attack and access simulation,
    vulnerability exposures as well as security control weaknesses are revealed instantly.

    DDoS attack simulation discovers all possible attack scenarios and reveals the step
    by step process that an attacker or worm may follow. It illustrates specific vulnerabilities
    to be exploited and network access traversed for each exploitable path. Access simulation
    calculates network access privileges determined by firewall and routing configuration.
    Our botnet helps characterize the interconnectivity between any two given points, reporting
    not just whether access is possible, but also the detailed path to reach a final destination.
    Based on these combined results, security personnel are able to determine what additional
    DDoS attacks are necessary and where to deploy our organizations penetration testers.
