Top 20 DDoS2017 Tech Companies - 2017
The majority of today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are merely a smokescreen, designed not to deny service but to distract from the real motive — usually data theft and network infiltration. In addition to service outages, latency and downtime, short attacks allow cyber criminals to test for vulnerabilities within a network and monitor the success of new methods without being detected.
Disruptions to Internet-facing services due to DDoS attacks can cripple operations, impact customers and result in major financial impact, including loss of revenue. To curb the situation vast improvements to DDoS mitigation technologies and techniques are available to network operators. High performance, automatic DDoS mitigation engines can eliminate attacks in realtime, and provide continuous visibility and forensics into incursions on a network. The time from detection to mitigation of an attack has shrunk to almost nothing, because the need to manually analyse events and re-route traffic for cleaning has been virtually eliminated.
As sophisticated threats continue to evolve, effective security analysis requires continuous visibility into the traffic flowing between the protected network and the Internet. A solution that identifies attack vectors, analyzes the digital fingerprint, and gathers intelligence to prepare against emerging threats takes your DDoS resiliency plan beyond just attack mitigation.
