How does Magic Transit protect network infrastructure without impeding network performance?
Before Magic Transit, there were two primary strategies for protecting network infrastructure from DDoS attacks: on-premise hardware DDoS appliances and cloud-based scrubbing solutions.
On-premise hardware appliances do a fine job of protecting your infrastructure—to an extent. These boxes have limited bandwidth and they can become overwhelmed by larger or simultaneous attacks. Hardware also requires a large up-front investment and requires a lot of resources to manage and maintain.
