What is a DDoS attack and why everyone needs to know?

A denial of service (DoS) attack is cyber-attack where the perpetrator redirects a large volume of network traffic towards a particular organization's system or network.  The goal is to overwhelm the target in order to disrupt normal operations or make the target unavailable to intended users.  When it comes from more than a single source, it's referred to as a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. Such attacks have been a concern for a number of years, and continue to increase in both number and scale.

A well planned DDoS protection plan is an essential element of a comprehensive enterprise information security, business continuity and customer experience strategy. It ensures cloud-based apps remain available and accessible to their users/customers, even when threatened. And minimizes or eliminates the operational and financial impact of network and/or application downtime, which can become a significant threat to the livelihood of the organization.
