Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks increased by over 100% YoY. With nearly a quarter of the attacks aimed at the DNS layer and close to 80% not identified until they reach the DNS layer, it is no secret you should evaluate your Manage DNS provider critically as your first line defense in DDoS mitigation. Download this eBook to best equip your business against impending DDoS attacks including: • Common types of DDoS attacks and which layers of your infrastructure are most at risk • How to geographically isolate attacks and mitigate latency • How to get the best before, during and after attack protection

Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks. Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack. This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.

This whitepaper utilizes end-user interviews to better understand their DDoS defense plans, where they discovered a clear knowledge gap around the Denial of Service attacks in use and the defenses needed to maintain availability. The paper provides detail on the attacks in use, suggests realistic defensive architectures and tactics and explains the basic process required to have a chance of defending against a DDoS attack.

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.

Spam generates an enormous amount of traffic that is both time-consuming to handle and resource intensive. Apart from that, a large number of organizations have been victims of NDR spam that has an effect similar to a Distributed Denial of Service on the email system. In this paper we provide a technical explanation of NDR Spam and recommend solutions that can prevent or limit exposure to this kind of unsolicited email.

No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google. Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every type of attack, bad software, and bad actors—multiple times a day—and we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them. Google has published more than 160 academic research papers on computer security, privacy, and abuse prevention and has privately warned other software companies of weaknesses discovered in their systems. Within Google, we enforce a zero-trust security model, which monitors every device on the internal network.

Virtualization is moving to the mainstream and may soon be overtaking non-virtualized environments as a method for deploying applications. Does this broad adoption of virtualization, though, make network security easier or more difficult to achieve? While responses to this question are still highly varied, one thing is certain: most companies still have no clear and definite security policy for their virtual environments.

When was the last time you thought about your disaster recovery plan? Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, or floods can occur anytime and disable your data center, with little to no warning. Hacker activities like a denial of service attack can also take down your systems unexpectedly. Then you have the more mundane risks such as human error and hardware or software failures. The only predictable thing to say about these risks is that at some point, on some scale, you’ll have to recover your data center from downtime. When it comes to disaster readiness, proactive planning is the key to success. Every business, regardless of size, needs to have a well-tested disaster recovery plan in place. Every minute your systems are down, the financial implications grow. Take the assessment to see where your disaster recovery plan ranks. Then learn about next steps and more information.

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.

Small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB) are increasingly relying upon web-based applications and web-enabled services for running their business. Applications such as CRM, e-commerce transactions and other web-enabled applications are accessed both locally and remotely from outside the business facilities. These web-based applications are vulnerable to attacks from viruses, intrusions, and denial of service (DoS) attacks, as traffic comes into the network through various ports and firewalls without being inspected.

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
