The scale and sophistication of DDoS attacks has evolved. Unfortunately, this means today’s complex attacks are:
- Much more difficult to guard against
- Even harder for a business to recover from
In addition, the sheer scale of a typical attack can rapidly overwhelm the target’s infrastructure. With today’s attacks often running at 80 – 100 Gb per second, the bandwidth of typical corporate networks can be saturated in just a few seconds.
All of this means that the simple prevention techniques – that were still effective only a few years ago – no longer offer adequate DDoS attack protection. Businesses are no longer able to defend against attacks, without using specialist defense services. The threats have become more devious… so your protection measures have to be even more capable.
