Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) is a type of attack that leverages the massive stolen computing power provided by infected endpoints to flood targets with traffic. The goal of a DDoS attack is to disrupt the online operations of a target organisation by consuming available network bandwidth or server resources.
This white paper published by Frost & Sullivan and Cisco examines the role, capabilities, and advantages of service providers in the DDoS mitigation process, as well as how this role might develop in the future.
