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.

High-Performance Visibility into SSL/TLS Traffic

Protection of your business’s confidential information and prevention of data breaches are crucial to supporting successful business operations. This necessarily involves taking that extra step to safeguard all forms of communication, including streaming videos, social media interactions, and email messages, against security threats. With SSL/TLS, you can establish secure communication with your business associates and customers. Unfortunately, cyber criminals use SSL/TLS as a tunnel to hide malware from security devices. That’s why even though you may be safeguarded by the most advanced firewall technology and your IDS/IPS is aware of a vast number of vulnerabilities, your existing defense mechanisms may still fail to see into encrypted SSL/TLS traffic. Therefore, you should deploy enterprise security solutions that have the capability to gain visibility into the encrypted traffic and prevent malware from gaining entry into your network.

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.

If you are like most people and myself, you do not go into a bank and have a conversation with a teller when you make a deposit or withdrawal. You probably do not write paper checks and sign them. You have an app on your phone to access your bank account and use one of the thousands of automated teller machines (ATM), around the world to move money in and out of your accounts.

People’s lives are at risk as the healthcare industry transforms patient care with modern IT technologies. Data security and application availability are essential when a patient’s medical information is on the network. Hospitals and medical practices are digitizing healthcare applications like x-rays, CAT scans, medication distribution and surgical procedures using interactive video. In addition, patient care staff are accessing all of this medical information on tablets, phones, and other devices in real-time.

2017’s 5 Most Dangerous DDoS Attacks & How to Mitigate Them (Part 1)

Throughout the history of mankind, whether in warfare or crime, the advantage has swung between offense and defense, with new technologies and innovative tactics displacing old doctrines and plans. For example, the defensive advantage of the Greek phalanx was eventually outmaneuvered by the Roman legion. Later, improvements in fortifications and armor led to castles and ironclad knights, until the invention of gunpowder made them obsolete. In the 20th century, fixed fortifications and trenches were rendered outdated by highly mobile armored forces. In all these examples, the common denominator is that one side’s tactical advantage spawned new ways of thinking among its opponents, eventually degrading that advantage or reversing it completely.

Businesses need to protect their assets when they are within their protective infrastructure AND when they are actively exposed or placed within the unprotected external world. The tools and procedures needed to protect the internal assets are different from the ones that protect the assets when they leave the confines of the secured network.

Recently Italian bank Unicredit suffered two security breaches. Data of 400,000 customers was stolen, including loan account numbers and Personally Identifiable Information (PII). There is a suspicion the breach had to do with interaction with a 3rd party. This incident is the latest reported in a long history of cyber-attacks against financial institutions. Every hack however, can teach us a lesson.
