Why Web DDoS Protection is important for you
Many digital service providers have their web applications hosted by external cloud providers in order to save the costs of their own infrastructure. The problem: protecting digital assets is often not a priority for many cloud providers. A concentrated DDoS attack can have serious consequences, especially for providers of web shops during large shopping events.
DDoS threats to your web applications include the following:
- Unavailability of services: Networks are overloaded with high numbers of attacks until performance degrades or your own offering is no longer accessible at all.
- Disruption of API interfaces: The Kubernetes clusters used by the service are disrupted, so that the services offered can no longer update as desired.
- Blocking of cloud services: The direct connection to linked services is disrupted to such an extent that no reliable synchronisation can take place – the loss of important data is imminent.
If a DDoS attack hits a target that is only inadequately protected, operators must expect noticeable damage in many cases. High revenue losses due to inaccessible services are the usual consequence, and the associated loss of image due to dissatisfied customers can have an even more serious impact in the long term.
