As the size, frequency and complexity of DDoS attacks increase, security and availability are quickly becoming top business concerns. Yet, traditional security products such as firewalls or intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are inadequate when it comes to stopping today's volumetric and application-layer DDoS attacks. The solution? A layered Intelligent DDoS Mitigation System (IDMS).
This paper examines some of the latest DDoS attack trends and provides service providers with best practices for delivering layered DDoS protection services that can help maintain customer availability and security. It also highlights solutions that can provide a comprehensive, layered IDMS solution that extends from the data center edge to the ISP cloud.
