DDoS Attacks on the Rise

DDoS Attacks on the Rise

The high volume, frequency and intensity of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks continue to grow at an alarming rate. DDoS attacks can shut down servers, disrupt operations, render websites useless, and lead to unauthorized access and even data theft. Since traditional defenses such as firewalls and intrusion-prevention systems are no longer enough, businesses need to need a more complex strategy for blocking attacks and keeping their web sites running without disrupting operations. graphic attacks

DDoS attacks are a real threat and can cause considerable damage to unprepared network infrastructures by:

  • Slowing down and blocking legitimate business flows
  • Downing and crashing servers
  • Causing data loss
  • Allowing Intellectual Property theft through combined DDoS/malware attacks
  • Infecting the users’ computers and making them part of their botnets — networks of compromised computers used to launch attacks.

Many businesses today are unknowingly at risk for major DDoS attacks because they lack the in-house DDoS expertise and hardware to identify and handle attacks.
