Overview: As the size and frequency of DDoS attacks continue to grow, so, too, does the diversity of these attacks. Internet-facing organizations are quickly discovering that they must protect themselves from not only traditional volumetric-based DDoS attacks aimed at their network infrastructure, but also from smaller, more targeted, stealthier application-layer attacks against well-known applications such as HTTP, DNS and VoIP.
This paper discusses the growing threat of application-layer attacks; the significant business impacts these attacks can have on revenue, profit, productivity and brand reputation; and the solutions available to help organizations detect and mitigate these evolving threats.
