Why Read This Report

Until recently, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks had been part of infosec lore: something you heard about but rarely experienced. With the rise of hacktivist groups and other cybercriminal organizations, DDoS has once again raised its ugly head. Today, these attacks are one of the most prevalent cyberassaults in our constantly changing threat landscape. Bank of America, MasterCard, PayPal, Sony, Visa, and many more of the world's largest companies have all been victims of DDoS attacks. These unpredictable attacks continue to increase and grow in sophistication by the day. The availability of an organization's critical systems depends on its ability to adapt and scale across its online infrastructure and protect it from these types of incidents. This report will provide an overview of the DDoS threat and provide insights into how to protect your organization from these attacks.
