There was a time when distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks threatened business operations by simply “flooding the network pipe” with traffic congestion. By overwhelming the connection to the Web server, these high-bandwidth volumetric attacks can take a Web property offline. In response, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) launched managed security services that provided enterprises with cloud-based DDoS protection. For nearly a decade, these services remained an effective strategy for DDoS defense.
Since 2010, there has been a dramatic shift in DDoS attacks as attackers have developed more sophisticated and targeted tools. Today, the application-layer is the most popular target for attacks, specifically Web services. These types of attack generally consume less bandwidth and are stealthier in nature when compared to volumetric attacks, making them harder to detect. What’s more, they can have a catastrophic impact on business availability by threatening critical HTTP, DNS, VoIP or SMTP applications and services.
This webinar will discuss defense mechanisms enterprises can use to defend against these targeted, complex and multi-vector attacks using a combination of on-premise and cloud-based DDoS solutions.
