WHAT:    “DDoS Attacks and the Ostrich Mentality: How to avoid having a large egg on your face when you are hit by a DDoS attack”

DDoS attacks on data center operations and services have become both highly sophisticated yet easy to perpetrate. As a result, enterprises, hosting providers and cloud service providers are experiencing DDoS attacks on their data centers more frequently and with more severe business consequences than ever before. As its name implies, DDoS attacks are an attack on service availability. Their goal is to prevent the data center from functioning – whether that is transacting ecommerce; delivering email, voice, or DNS services; providing Web access; or offering other business-critical services.

The consequences can be enormous to the bottom line and the brand. How much will it cost your business if data centers or services go down for an hour? How about 24 hours? This webinar will help attendees gain an understanding of today’s availability threats, the complex nature of these attacks and how best to defend against them.
