2021 was an exceptionally busy year for attackers. From some of the largest volumetric DDoS attacks launched by historically large swarms of botnets, to massive ransomware and ransom DDoS attack campaigns that interrupted aspects of critical infrastructure around the world, DDoS was the focal point of network security for many organizations.

As attackers continue to evolve their techniques and get more brazen with their attacks, how can organizations protect their network infrastructure to stay online with minimal to no impact on their business and operations?

Join this webinar to learn about:
* 2021 DDoS Trends
* Ransom DDoS attacks (incl. major attacks observed in 2021)
* What organizations can do to make the impact of DDoS attacks a thing of the past
