Oct 02, 2012

Download A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack against your organization�s network and systems can bring your online business to a grinding halt, costing you hundreds of thousands � even millions � of dollars, ruining your brand, and driving away your customers.

Far too many organizations are ill-prepared to deal with the effects of DDoS attacks and other Internet security threats. They rely on traditional security devices including firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and other technologies that are inadequate to defend their networks and systems against today�s DDoS attacks. This creates plenty of opportunity for cybercriminals, who include malicious competitors, extortionists, hacktivists and among others.

If you rely on the Internet you are a DDoS target.

This book explores real-world examples of DDoS attacks, the motivations of their perpetrators, and the operational and business risks to organizations. You also learn why traditional security solutions are ineffective and how Corero�s comprehensive DDoS Defense System, the first line of defense, protects enterprise networks against modern, advanced DDoS and malicious server targeted attacks.
