Before evaluating DDoS protection solutions, it is important to assess the needs, objectives, and constraints of the organization, network and applications. These factors will define the criteria for selecting the optimal solution.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have entered the 1 Tbps DDoS attack era. However, Radware research shows that DDoS attacks are not just getting bigger; they’re also getting more sophisticated. Hackers are constantly coming up with new and innovative ways of bypassing traditional DDoS defenses and compromise organizations’ service availability.
Your Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a crucial component of DDoS defenses. It is your contractual guarantee outlining what your DDoS mitigation provider will deliver and their obligation to remedy in case they do not meet those guarantees.
This is the last part of the blog series exploring the various alternatives for protection against DDoS attacks, and how to choose the optimal solution for you. The first part of this series covered premise-based hardware solutions, the second part discussed on-demand cloud solutions, and the third part covered always-on cloud solutions. This final piece will explore hybrid DDoS solutions, which combine both hardware and cloud-based components.
This blog series dives into the different DDoS protection models, in order to help customers choose the optimal protection for their particular use-case. The first parts of this series covered premise-based appliances and on-demand cloud services. This installment will cover always-on cloud DDoS protection deployments, its advantages and drawbacks, and what use-cases are best for it. The final part of this series will focus on hybrid deployments, which combine premise-based and cloud-based protections.
This blog series explores the various options for DDoS protection and help organizations choose the optimal solution for themselves. The first part of this series covered the premise-based DDoS mitigation appliance. This installment will provide an overview of on-demand cloud-based solutions. Subsequent chapters will also cover always-on and hybrid solutions.
However, DDoS protection is not a one-size-fits-all fixed menu; rather, it is an a-la-carte buffet of multiple choices. Each option has its unique advantages and drawbacks, and it is up to the customer to select the optimal solution that best fits their needs, threats, and budget.
This blog series explores the various options for DDoS protection deployments and discusses the considerations, advantages and drawbacks of each approach, and who it is usually best suited for.
Evasive malware has become a key threat to businesses’ sensitive data. Stealing and selling sensitive data on the Darknet is a lucrative business for hackers, who increasingly rely on evasive malware to penetrate corporate networks.
A study by Verizon found that over 50% of data breaches involve the usage of malware in some capacity. Indeed, some of the largest and best-known data breaches on record, such as Target, Anthem Health, The Home Depot and the U.S. Federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM) were the result of evasive malware running undetected in the network over long periods. These organizations all have large security teams, massive IT budgets and multi-layered anti-malware protections. And yet, in each of these cases these defenses were all circumvented by evasive malware.
In the past five years, we have watched a rapid evolution in both sophistication and scale of DDoS attacks. Long gone are the days of the traditional Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Now, threat actors use massive IoT botnets to enslave millions of devices into global scale DDoS attacks. They confuse defenses by launching short multi-vector attacks in bursts, they multiply the force impact of their attacks by using TLS/SSL, and even destroy systems with Permanent Denial of Service (PDoS) attacks.
DDoS protection pricing is all over the map, and can get fairly complex. However, there are a few key questions to ask in order to make sure you’re not paying too much.
As DDoS attacks grow more frequent, more powerful, and more sophisticated, many organizations turn to DDoS mitigation services to protect themselves against attack. DDoS protection vendors range in all shapes and sizes, from dedicated DDoS mitigation providers to CDN vendors who add website DDoS protection, to ISPs who resell DDoS protection as an add-on. As a result, the quality and cost of such service can vary wildly, and many customers end up purchasing protection packages that are either inadequate, or too big for their needs, resulting in unnecessary costs.
