The IoT Botnets – DDoS Threat Landscape has Changed, Have you?
As you are seeing in today’s headlines, many businesses are under-invested and ill-prepared to handle modern DDoS attacks, such as those caused by the Mirai IoT botnet. Many organizations wrongly believe they are not being targeted by DDoS attacks, and are in fact experiencing outages due to DDoS attacks that are being attributed to equipment failures or operational error; still more rely on existing, more traditional, security devices such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS), or a single layer of protection from their ISP or content delivery network (CDN). In each case, these businesses are exposed and only partially protected.
In this presentation, Arbor Networks security expert will explain exactly how the stakes have changed, and what it means for the assumptions organizations have been making with regard to protecting the availability of their business-critical websites, services and applications.
