DDoS protection in detail –
Cyber weapons in action
Systematic attacks via hijacked computers and servers aim at smothering the target’s unprotected infrastructure. The resulting downtime damages the reputation and the business. Some attacks even serve as a distraction while a major data theft is under way.
Protection from such attacks plays a significant role and is usually readily available.
DDoS attacks are capable of paralyzing web servers or entire networks. Unlike simple denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) have an enormous impact. With this method, multiple computers attack a web page or an entire network infrastructure concurrently and as an array (bot networks).
This can quickly cause a server outage. Typical DDoS attacks aim at overloading the access link, the firewall resources, and the web and database servers.LEARN MORE ABOUT DDOS ATTACKS
