In today’s threat landscape, “Denial of Service (DoS)” attacks are increasing in number, speed and complexity. Denial of Service and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are relatively easy to carry out, and can cause serious damage to companies who rely on web services to operate. Multiple (more than 50) DDoS attack “toolkits” are readily available on the Internet, and an increasing number of attacks are initiated in over 230 countries. DDoS attacks are often profit-driven: in 2011, cyber criminals earned a whopping $12.5 billion dollars. 2012 shows an alarming surge of DDoS threats to the financial services industry. However hacktivisim and political motivations are fast becoming the most popular forum to launch Denial of Service attacks. Anonymous successfully spearheaded numerous attack campaigns against individuals, organizations, governments and countries in retaliation for actions or statements they didn’t agree with. Many DDoS solutions are deployed by an Internet Service Provider, offering generic protections against network layer attacks. However today’s DDoS attacks have become more sophisticated, launching multiple attacks at networks and applications. Successful DDoS solutions will offer companies the ability to customize their protections to meet changing security needs, fast response time during an attack, and a choice of deployment options.
