Hackers want to disrupt your business, harm your organization’s reputation, and keep your enterprise from performing its mission. If they succeed, they win and you lose. By being prepared for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and working to eliminate vulnerabilities before an attack, you can prevent DDoS hackers from damaging your brand and interfering with your organization’s mission.
A range of industries is commonly targeted by DDoS attackers – financial services, e-commerce, online gaming, travel and hospitality, healthcare, media and telecommunications, government agencies, and cloud-based software and services. Organizations in these industries and others with much to lose from a website outage need to have a plan in place for DDoS prevention and mitigation.
