Live webinar: DDoS high-volume vectors

How Memcached Reflection threatens IT security

Webinar topics in focus

The trend towards large volume DDoS attacks has grown massively since the appearance of memcached reflection attacks in the spring of 2018. The new high-volume vector by far exceeds the maximum attack volumes that were achieved in the past using reflected IoT attacks or DNS and NTP reflection/amplification. With an enormous amplification factor, Memcached reflection heralds the arrival of the terabit era, presenting companies with entirely new challenges in terms of their DDoS protection.
