Do you have an active layer in your cybersecurity strategy to defend against and defeat DDoS attacks? These attacks are a persistent and an ever-increasing threat!
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the normal traffic of the targeted server, service, or network by overwhelming that target (or its surrounding infrastructure) with a flood of Internet traffic.
DDoS attacks achieve effectiveness by utilizing multiple compromised computer systems as sources of attack traffic. Exploited machines can include computers and other networked resources such as IoT devices, (like smart TVs, smart locks, smart thermostats, smart lighting and smart security; or other IoT devices like sensors used to monitor an assembly line or other manufacturing processes)
From a high level, a DDoS attack is like an unexpected traffic jam clogging up the highway, preventing regular traffic from arriving at its destination. These attahttps://macny.my.salesforce-sites.com/Events/?id=a0B3s00000F908Pcks can cause downtime and prevent legitimate users from buying products, using a service, getting information, or any other access.
The digital shift over the past few years has only made DDoS attacks more common and manufacturers are among the top targets of cybersecurity attacks. Given the low barriers to entry and the high potential of monetary gains, low-level and novice threat actors find it easier to launch DDoS attacks and use it as a smokescreen for other malicious activities such as data theft or ransomware.
It is a vital practice for all businesses to include a form of DDoS protection as an active layer of their cybersecurity strategy. Find out how you can defend against and defeat this threat.
