Why Infrastructure DDoS Protection is important for you
Those who host their own infrastructure are increasingly being targeted by cybercriminals. At the end of 2021, the number and complexity of DDoS attacks on IT infrastructure providers reached a sad peak. The infrastructure risk factor will continue to play a role in the coming months, and there is no sign of the threat leveling off.
The following DDoS threats, among others, exist for your infrastructure:
- Blockage of the access line: Your way out is blocked by requests which, among other things, leads to faulty communication between the services.
- Unavailability of services: Under the attack load, the performance of your infrastructure can go to its knees and no longer correctly process the requests you actually want.
- Crippling the infrastructure: The entire infrastructure is negatively affected – this would result in disrupted servers or capped VOIP telephony, for example.
The consequences of a successful DDoS attack are sometimes massive and, in addition to high costs due to important service failures, also include sensitive image damage, since customers/users temporarily no longer have access to the services. Effective infrastructure protection plays a fundamental role, especially for financial service providers or critical infrastructure operators.
