Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks continue to increase in sophistication. The size of attacks is also growing. At the same time, DDoS attackers are shifting their focus from the network and transport layers to the application layer, where DDoS protection is more difficult to maintain.
Unfortunately, many companies lack the in-house expertise and resources to deploy, manage and scale their security programs to provide sufficient DDoS protection. That puts them at risk for costly downtime, as well as lost data, revenue, productivity, reputation, and user loyalty. Even those that do have DDoS protection may find their solution compromises web and application performance.
