There are different methods companies and organizations of all sizes can initiate to help protect against DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. It is important to stress, even with the best intentions and security measures, it is almost impossible to be 100% protected. The reason it is impossible to fully protect yourself has to do with technologies and the constant evolution of new ones.
One method businesses used to protect themselves in the past were firewalls and specialized coded scripts to attempt to filter out bad website traffic and only allow good traffic through. Another method some businesses have tried is installing devices on the front end of routers and servers. However, both of these methods are no longer effective against large-scale DDoS attacks.
One of the most effective methods you can use to protect your business is using DDoS mitigation services through your Cloud mitigation and remote desktop services provider. These types of providers have the mitigation capacity to weed out bad traffic before routing the good traffic to your website. Additionally, they have access to the latest technologies and equipment to help reduce the risks of DDoS attacks.
As a result, businesses have a cost-effective and efficient solution, which is scalable as needs change, to keep up with the ever-changing and evolving methods, techniques, and technologies used by DDoS attackers.
