Fighting Distributed Attacks (DDoS) with Distributed Defense
“Divide and Conquer” to Stop DDoS Threats in Their Tracks
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a particularly disruptive threat to our interconnected world and to the Internet as a whole. This was recently demonstrated when Dyn Inc., one of the largest DNS provider sites was attacked in late October 2016, disrupting access to an alarming number of websites and services for many hours, including Twitter, Reddit, and more than 60 others. A remarkable element to this attack is that apparently a vast number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices – IP cameras, baby monitors, residential gateways, etc. – were hijacked to become part of the botnet that initiated the attack traffic. Traditional anti-DDoS protection methods can have problems with scaling, and most do not address the emerging threat landscape where attacks may not originate from “outside” of the datacenter but rather from subverted insider machines.
In this webinar, we will discuss Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, and how the changing nature and scale of the threats is motivating new approaches to protection. Hybrid solutions that address volumetric attacks with cloud-based scrubbing, combined with distributed, disaggregated defenses inside the data center are effective even against insider attacks and scale to meet the needs of the largest cloud architectures.
