Our DDoS Papers Publish

by Anton Chuvakin  |  November 19, 2014  |  2 Comments

Our papers on Denial of Service (DoS/DDoS) protection have just published. Together with Patrick Hevesi, our newest team member, we have updated and expanded our DDoS coverage.

  • “DDoS: A Comparison of Defense Approaches” is our flagship DDoS document that states that “distributed denial of service attacks have risen in complexity, bandwidth and number of occurrences targeting enterprises. Organizations must architect their defenses with both cloud and on-premises defenses along with integrating DDoS responses into the current incident response process.” Now the document features much more vendor/provider coverage and updated architecture guidance, as well as more content on modern attacks and defenses.
  • “Blueprint for Mitigating DDoS Attacks and Protecting Data Centers and Hybrid Cloud” is a quick document that “defines a DDoS defense architecture for enterprises with a mission-critical website or e-commerce site and that have multiple ISPs connected into their data centers and corporate centers, and that use public IaaS.” This document features a sample DDoS defense architecture using cloud and on-premise components.
