When most people think of denial of service (DoS) attacks, they think of the large pipe-saturating distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks aimed at the network layer. However, attacks on website or application availability are not just volumetric in nature. Many attacks are designed to cause resource exhaustion somewhere in the application stack, the application servers, middleware, or back-end database.

Today, digital security is top-of-mind. From the boardroom to the backroom, everyone is asking the same questions, “How do we protect our digital experiences? How do we ensure our website is safe for our visitors? How do we make sure that no one can steal our content?” But safeguarding a digital experience isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It often involves multiple techniques and layers of security. From verifying your identity (with HTTPS) to encrypting sensitive data to restricting access and protecting multimedia content, you must approach security in a layered manner, employing multiple means and techniques to protect the digital content through which your audience interacts. This paper explores ten different methods and technologies that an organization can employ to protect its content. This multi-layered approach can effectively protect your digital content, ensure high availability, and maintain superior quality of experience for every digital visitor. You’ll learn: 10 s

You’ve probably heard about distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, or maybe you’ve even been hit by one. If you’re like most organizations, you’ve already been DDoSed. Perhaps the attack was minor, a wakeup call, but then the attack subsided without causing damage and you just left DDoS protection on your “to-do list.” If you don’t have a DDoS attack plan, it’s probably time to bump it up to the top of your list. That’s because DDoS attacks are getting bigger, persistent, and more harmful. They inflict serious cost in terms of lost revenue, damaged systems and lost consumer trust. DDoS is no longer just a web server problem; infrastructure is now a target. The attacker’s ambition is clear: Take down your online existence and harm your organization.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have become a fact of life for any business with a web presence. Whether you’re an enterprise, e-commerce business, local organization, or government offce—it’s merely a matter of time before you’re going to have to deal with the inevitable DDoS attack. The question is what can you do before an attack so you can have adequate defenses already in place. This handbook is a practical guide for planning and executing a DDoS response plan. It outlines pragmatic steps and best practices for choosing and setting up the right mitigation solution for your organization, how to authoritatively respond to an attack, and conduct a thorough post-attack analysis for developing follow-up defense strategies.

The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.

Die Cloud ist ein Servernetzwerk, das Daten, Software und Services umfasst. Auf Clouddienste wird für gewöhnlich über das Internet, und nicht lokal in einem Rechenzentrum, zugegriffen. Wenn es um Cybersicherheit geht, verlassen sich immer mehr Unternehmen auf die Cloud. Die zwei Hauptgründe: 1. Aufgrund der sich ständig ändernden Bedrohungslandschaft wird immer mehr Umfang, Genauigkeit, Erfahrung und kollektive Intelligenz benötigt. Diese Anforderungen können die meisten Unternehmen intern nicht erfüllen. 2. Lokale Appliances und Unternehmensrechenzentren haben prinzipiell ihre Grenzen, wenn es um Abwehrmechanismen gegen DDoS- (Distributed Denial of Service) und Webangriffe geht.

For cybersecurity professionals, 2016 presented a year of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that were unprecedented. Week after week, the public was inundated with news of hacks, attacks, and data leaks. It didn’t take long for everybody to realize the old axiom of cybersecurity still holds true - there are two types of companies: those who are hacked and know about it, and those who are hacked and soon will find out. As a key player in the war against DDoS attacks, Neustar has been on the front line, detecting, alerting, and mitigating strikes to keep companies and their customers safe.

Webanwendungs- und DDoS-Angriffe lassen sich nicht vorhersehen und treffen Unternehmen ohne Vorwarnung. Für die meisten DDoS-Angriffe (Distributed Denial of Service) ist nicht viel Know-how erforderlich. Angreifer können günstig Ressourcen mieten, die auf entsprechenden Seiten leicht zu finden sind. Trotz des geringen Preises führen DDoS-Angriffe zu vielen Problemen: • Betriebsunterbrechung • Verlust vertraulicher Daten • Niedrigere Nutzerproduktivität • Rufschädigung • Beeinträchtigung von Partnerschaften und Kundenbeziehungen • Umsatzverlust Je nach Branche können sich so schnell Schäden von Zehntausenden US-Dollar ergeben – in einigen Fällen geht der Schaden sogar in die Millionen. Nur 2 % der Unternehmen gaben an, ihre Webanwendungen seien in den vergangenen 12 Monaten nicht Opfer eines Angriffs geworden. Bei 98 % war das Gegenteil der Fall.

Web application and DDoS attacks hit enterprises without warning or reason. Most Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks require little skill to launch with attackers can simply rent resources from DDoS-for-hire sites at a low cost.. In comparison, DDoS attacks typically result in: • Operational disruption • Loss of confidential data • Lost user productivity • Reputational harm • Damage to partner and customer relations • Lost revenue Depending on your industry, that could add up to tens of thousands of dollars in damage – and in some cases it could be millions. Only 2% of organizations said their web applications had not been compromised in the past 12 months – 98% said they had.

As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents. However, increasing dependence on web and network services also makes government a tempting target for hackers. Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches, leaks, the risks can be enormous. Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.
