After all, DDoS attacks work because of the sheer amount of traffic they can throw your way, so your mitigation system needs to be able to handle large numbers of packets.
You should also keep the scalability of your analytics infrastructure in mind. For example, a flow samplin
HOW TO PREVENT DDOS ATTACKS
As you can see after examining the five most famous attacks, DDoS attacks aren’t going away. In fact, they’re only growing larger and more destructive. So, the best thing you can do to prevent being a victim of one yourself is learn from attacks that have already happened.
Here’s how you can start thinking about DDoS protection:
CHOOSE A DEPLOYMENT MODE
There are benefits to both proactive and reactive DDoS deployment modes, and which one you choose depe
THE SECURITY THREAT OF A DDOS ATTACK
More importantly, in many cases a DDoS attack is merely designed to distract from other criminal activity, such as data theft or network infiltration. The attacker keeps its target busy fighting off the DDoS attack, to then sneak in a piece of malware.
FIVE MOST FAMOUS DDOS ATTACKS
In recent years, DDoS attacks have only been increasing in both frequency and severity. Here, we’ll examine five of the largest and most famous DDoS attacks.
DDoS attacks are not only on the rise—they’re also bigger and more devastating than ever before. From independent websites to multinational banks, it seems like no one is immune.
In fact, a 2017 report from Cisco found that the number of DD0S attacks exceeding 1 gigabit per second of traffic will rise to 3.1 million by 2021, a 2.5-fold increase from 2016.
However, attackers aren’t the only ones who are capable of adapting. By examining five of the most famous DDoS attacks in recent his
