What is a DDoS attack?
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to make an online service on internet unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. These attacks are always more complex and enterprises cannot protect themselves against these attacks. They have to trust their Internet Service Provider. Indeed, traditional security systems such as Firewalls, DNS do not stop all DDoS attacks. Only a dedicated service will protect your IT infrastructures and your Internet services, by mitigating your traffic: rejecting illegitimate Internet traffic and filtering legitimate traffic.
What are the consequences?
In case of a DDoS attack, the impacts are numerous for your company:
• Business interruption
• Loss of income
• Loss of notoriety
No industry is immune to these attacks. Attacks can target any entity with a network infrastructure connected to the Internet.
