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.
With the growing online availability of attack tools and services, the pool of possible attacks is larger than ever. Let’s face it, getting ready for the next cyber-attack is the new normal! This ‘readiness’ is a new organizational tax on nearly every employed individual throughout the world.
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.
SIP-enabled devices have gained widespread use in recent times. With more and more VoIP applications that use SIP as their signalling protocol being developed these days, the industry should put greater emphasis on safeguarding SIP assets against undesirable exploitations that may either degrade the quality of VoIP services or promote cyber-crime.
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.
Let’s take a journey through a real-life booter and stresser service to better understand the tools, the trade and pricing behind DDoS-as-a-Service.
I do declare, I do not know; if this guest be friend or foe…
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to turn away malicious network guests before they create havoc and bring all their evil friends to visit your applications, without having to worry about blocking legitimate guests from access to your applications?
