Summary

In Forrester's 36-criteria evaluation of distributed denial of service (DDoS) services providers, we identified nine of the most significant companies — Akamai Technologies CenturyLink, CloudFlare, DOSarrest Internet Security, F5 Networks, Imperva, Level 3 Communications, Neustar, and Verisign — in a crowded field of competitors. We researched, analyzed, and scored them to determine which are best able to protect their customers' business. The DDoS services space is growing in importance because distributed denial of service attacks now represent a considerable percentage of the total number of threats against organizations of all sizes. DDoS has historically focused on disruption, but today it is more frequently an opening salvo for more complex attacks that result in theft of sensitive data or valuable intellectual property. This report details how well each vendor measures up against our criteria and against each other with their DDoS prevention services.
