DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service)

Defending Against DDoS Attacks

A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack involves overwhelming a target's server, service, or network with a flood of internet traffic, rendering it unusable. These attacks can disrupt business operations and cause significant financial losses.

Types of DDoS Attacks:

  1. Volume-Based Attacks: Flooding the target with massive amounts of data.
  2. Protocol Attacks: Exploiting weaknesses in network protocols.
  3. Application Layer Attacks: Targeting specific applications or services.

Protection Tips:

  • Implement network security solutions like firewalls and anti-DDoS software.
  • Use content delivery networks (CDNs) to distribute traffic load.
  • Regularly update and patch systems to close vulnerabilities.

By preparing and fortifying your defenses, you can mitigate the impact of DDoS attacks.
