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.
Hybrid Cloud WAF is the answer. Now what was the question?
Let’s back up a minute. There is an ancient riddle which goes something like this:
You are walking down a path and come upon a fork in the road. One side is the good path and the other side is the bad path. However, you don’t know which one is which and both paths are guarded by identical twins. One guard tells the truth and the other, always tells lies. If you want to take the good path, what should you ask the guards? You would ask “which path would your brother go?” Then, take the path opposite from where they are pointing.
