The Increasing Frequency, Complexity and Severity of DDoS Attacks are Rapidly Changing the Face of Network Security
DDoS Attacks over the world

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks can cripple your online operation, whether the target is your Web servers, DNS servers, or application servers.

Even though DDoS attacks have been around for decades, the scale, frequency and sophistication of these attacks are increasing faster than the capacity of most organizations to absorb them.

Given the extraordinary and rapid changes in DDoS attacks, traditional DDoS mitigation tactics such as bandwidth over-provisioning, firewalls, intrusion prevention system devices and reliance on ISPs are no longer sufficient to protect an organization’s networks, applications and services.

In a world that is growing constantly more interconnected and complex, it can be difficult for companies to anticipate the next attack or malicious activity. While many companies assume that an attacker will never target them, a recent Verisign survey of IT decision makers revealed that the need to protect any network from this kind of disruption has never been greater:

  • 63 percent of respondents had experienced at least one DDoS attack in the past year
    • Of those attacked, 11 percent had been hit six or more times
  • 67 percent said that downtime of any kind affected their customers
  • 51 percent reported lost revenue from any downtime

Verisign’s DDoS Protection Services offers comprehensive monitoring and mitigation.

WHAT IS A DDOS ATTACK

Web Server
Website User
Website User
Hacker
Botnet

Your Website

Typical targets include Web Servers. DNS servers, application servers, routers, firewalls and Internet Bandwidth.

Normal Traffic

Users easily access your products and services.

Intent to Distrupt

A rogue attacker can target a web server with the intent to disrupt service.

Botnet

This attacker uses multiple hosts (such as compromised PCs that are part of a “botnet”) to carry out and amplify the attack.

DDoS Attack

Attackers usually create the denial of service condition by either consuming server bandwidth or by impairing the server itself.

DDoS Attack

The attack involves saturating the target machine with requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable.
