DDoS Attacks Threaten Enterprises

Attackers are becoming more pronounced with their attacks with greater resources and monitoring of their targets, enterprises therefore are increasingly vulnerable if they go alone in building DDoS defenses. Almost half of the organizations polled are using on-premise solutions such as fire- walls and intrusion prevention to thwart DDoS attacks, and while the most sophisticated, specialized onpremise appliances are no match for the scope of today’s volumetric attacks. They are also costly to buy and operate, requiring constant attention to keep them current.

However Cloud-based services can provide advantages to keep enterprises up and running in the face of high volume assaults.
