ZCorum officers, Scott Helms, Vice President of Technology, and Rick Yuzzi, Vice President of Marketing, will explain how DDoS attacks are launched, as well as the impact that attacks can have on a network. They will also outline strategies which can be used to protect servers from being targeted, and how BCP-38 source address filtering can be used to stop attackers from using a network.
