DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks have become a major threat to a huge variety of businesses, from the smallest to the largest multi-national corporations. DDoS attacks can cause significant damage and disruption. They can adversely affect a targeted company’s reputation and result in lost revenue. It’s why many businesses now, as part of the investment to protect their network against DDoS attacks, are turning to threat intelligence feeds.
As a professional ADC administrator, you know how frustrating it can be to receive a call about application performance issues, especially on the weekend. Whether it's slow response times, connectivity failures, or other glitches, troubleshooting these problems can be a time-consuming and frustrating process.
Here are the first things that come to mind when many people think of a DDoS attack: Unsophisticated, the oldest trick in the book, not harmful, “I am not at risk”, and on and on. I am here to tell you it is all false. Our current DDoS threat landscape proves it. Although we see many attacks in the news that are related to political debates and extremists’ hacktivism, other targets, including high schools, e-commerce, and others, don’t necessarily make the news but are attacked as regularly.
As web applications become the core of business functions, application protection takes an ever more important role in protecting those applications, their availability and the customer data that is processed through them. However, as its importance grows, the domain of application security is also growing in depth and complexity, with a unique set of attacks, tools and mechanisms for mitigation attacks. As a consequence, it is becoming a dedicated discipline within cybersecurity, distinct from other domains or specializations.
A 2-tier DDoS solution combining on-premises and cloud-based protection is the best practice recommended by industry experts, such as Gartner. By utilizing both solutions, organizations can benefit from the strengths of each, including the ability to mitigate attacks closer to the source with on-premises protection and the scalability and flexibility of cloud-based protection.
DNS over HTTPS (DoH) is a protocol that allows for DNS resolution to occur through an encrypted HTTPS connection. Unlike traditional DNS resolution, which employs unencrypted UDP or TCP connections, DoH provides a heightened level of privacy and security and has been widely adopted by major web browsers and operating systems.
