The sophistication, volume and frequency of DDoS attacks have evolved into major network availability and security threats. In the past, DDoS attacks were simply considered brute-force network attacks. These volumetric attacks continue to exist; however the DDoS threat has become far more sophisticated and difficult to detect and protect against.

The toolkits that attackers are using to create massive IoT botnets or execute low-level targeted application layer DDoS attacks are more accessible than ever before. These attacks are the leading internet-based threats facing companies as well as the internet and hosting providers servicing them. Join this webchat to learn how to better prepare for the impending increase in sophistication and scale of DDoS attacks.
