DDoS Storm

DDoS Storm:
DDoS Attack Generator

Simulate DDoS Attacks at High Scale

Test and Measure Your Defense Against DDoS (Distributed Denial of Services) Attacks

DDoS attackers use botnets – a network of compromised devices – to bring down a targeted network or server using a large scale of valid requests. While many organizations rely on firewalls, load balancers and other devices to protect their networks, true DDoS attack mitigation requires constant monitoring, detection, and testing to maintain business operations and avoid disastrous losses.

Simulate DDoS Attacks

DDoS Storm generates DDoS attacks to test the performance of networks and cybersecurity devices like Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), shields, routers and switches in a secure environment.

Test against an extremely high scale of requests to identify security vulnerabilities. Use DDoS Storm to find the breaking point of your network devices before a real attack shuts down your entire operation.

DDoS Attack Testing Diagram


    • Perform DDoS testing to measure the effectiveness of your DDoS mitigation techniques and network security devices like Web Application Firewalls (WAFs).
    • Analyze the ability of devices under test (DUTs) to recognize and allow legitimate traffic amidst a flood of malicious requests.
    • Test your entire stack with one solution by simulating multi-vector, multi-stage attacks against layers 2-7.
    • Generate large volumes of legitimate and bot traffic from different regions simultaneously to identify potential points of entry for attackers.
    • Harden your defenses against DDoS attacks to reduce downtime and avoid losses.
    • Validate vendor performance claims and gauge he impact of new solutions on compliance and cyber insurance premiums.

Perform DDoS Stress Tests

DDoS Storm allows users to create realistic attack scenarios by configuring specific details of the attack including the regions it’s launched from, the number of compromised devices, how fast the attack ramps up, and how often it repeats.

Configure tests quickly and easily with DDoS Storm’s modern, wizard-driven user interface or automate testing using RESTful API.
