Despite years of headlines, many businesses today are under-invested and ill-prepared to handle modern DDoS attacks. Many wrongly believe they are not being targeted by DDoS attacks, and are in fact experiencing outages due to DDoS attacks that are being attributed to equipment failures or operational error because the companies lack DDoS visibility and defense. Still more rely on existing, more traditional, security devices such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS), or a single layer of protection from their ISP or content delivery network (CDN). In each case, these businesses are exposed and only partially protected. Firewalls and IPS are stateful devices that are often targets of DDoS attacks, while cloud-only or CDN protection does not provide adequate protection for critical business applications.

Join this web conference to understand exactly how the stakes have changed, and what it means for the assumptions organizations have been making with regard to protecting the availability of their business-critical websites, services and applications. In light of the recent attacks, we will expose the multiple attack vectors of the Mirai IoT botnet and provide best practices for mitigation.

In this web conference you will learn:
• About the evolution of DDoS attacks
• The implications for DDoS defense
• Current best practices in DDoS defense
