Overview

Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks remain one of the most effective methods used by cybercriminals to cause significant financial, operational, and reputational damage to businesses worldwide. Meeting the challenges associated with DDoS attacks requires a comprehensive approach that addresses all threats at all layers. But enhanced security shouldn’t come at the expense of performance. While on-premise solutions can be part of the answer, more robust solutions integrate performance with scalable, cloud-based mitigation that works at the network edge to deliver maximum agility and unlimited capacity.

 

Join us in this live webinar and Q&A to learn about: 
– Common DDoS attack types

– Why your organization should have DDoS protection in place

– 5 critical considerations for mitigating DDoS attacks
