Today’s DDoS attacks are an easy way to interrupt businesses. From holding a website hostage for a ransom, to blocking access to an application to make a political statement, or simply deflecting attention while other threat vectors steal information, DDoS is a growing concern for enterprises. Yet even in today’s dynamic threat landscape, many enterprises still hold the belief that a dedicated DDoS protection solution is not important when their existing security solution may protect them 80 percent of the time. Others believe that what they adopted two years ago—let alone five years ago—still works today. In these instances, enterprises are gambling with their network.
It’s time to debunk some outmoded myths. There are five common mistakes that enterprises make when addressing DDoS. This white paper will shed some light on these failed practices, and provide insight into why they do not work.
