Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks can be unleashed by anyone, but with a little preparation, you can prevent service disruptions caused by DDoS. Check Point DDoS-P (DDoS Protection) uses a hybrid of dedicated on-premises and cloud-based resources to defend against volumetric, application, reflective and resource-exhaustive DDoS attacks.
Preventing DDoS attacks just got easier
DDoS toolkits are relatively easy to obtain online and require limited technical experience or resources to initiate an attack – and the outcome can be devastating. A well-orchestrated denial-of-service takes a toll on productivity, customer service, reputation and revenue.
To combat DDoS effectively, organizations need tools to immediately and effectively halt flooding at both the network and application layers, before a successful attack can take hold.
As attacks evolve, stay one step ahead
Once they have identified a vulnerable target, hackers don’t let up. Eighty-seven percent of DDoS attack victims were attacked multiple times.
Attackers are also evolving their methods to make detection more difficult, often by favoring “low and slow” attacks that may not immediately raise the alarm. Others use DDoS as a smokescreen to draw the attention of the security team while data is stolen.
