Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are putting your business at risk.
DDoS attacks are a top concern for every IT organization. Regardless of company size or industry, a DDoS attack can tarnish your business’s reputation and severely impact the bottom line.
And DDoS threats are on the rise. According to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, DDoS attacks are the most-reported security incidents compared to all other types of cyberattacks.
What is DDoS?
A DDoS attack prevents users from accessing a service on the internet by overwhelming the service with more traffic than it can handle. These types of attacks are launched from compromised devices spread throughout the global internet. The high number of infected devices participating in an attack—and the high volume of traffic targeting the victim—makes DDoS attacks difficult to defeat.
DNS is a common target for DDoS attacks. Some attackers try to overwhelm your DNS servers directly. Others attempt to exploit your DNS systems to launch attacks on other elements of your IT infrastructure and other companies. Either way, DNS-based DDoS attacks can impair online applications and services and disrupt your business.
What is DDoS Mitigation?
DDoS Mitigation is a service that allows organizations to isolate and avoid artificial traffic flooding from DDoS attacks so that legitimate traffic can get through.
Oracle Dyn's View
Oracle Dyn believes that conventional firewalls and intrusion prevention systems can’t protect against today’s complex DDoS attacks on their own. Security experts agree that truly effective online security and threat mitigation requires an integrated, multilayer approach that includes protection for your DNS, networks, and web applications.
Oracle Dyn security experts work around the clock to proactively monitor your infrastructure and mitigate DDoS attacks.
