TYPES OF DDOS ATTACKS AND THEIR PREVENTION AND MITIGATION STRATEGY
DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. DDoS is a serious threat to businesses and organizations as it can be quite disruptive. According to the Verisign Distributed Denial of Service Trends Report, DDoS activity picked up the pace by 85% in each of the last two years with 32% of those attacks in 2015 targeting software-as-service, IT services, and cloud computing companies. So what are DDoS attacks capable of? They take websites and servers down by either bombarding them with a request that looks valid but isn’t or floods the site with data. DDoS attacks are concentrated and automated attempts for overloading a target network with a huge amount of requests that make it useless. Hackers do it by launching a series of data packets at a very fast speed to the target computer system until it begins to lag or completely reach its downtime.
