As you take advantage of cloud services to move more data and applications online, distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS attacks) become an increasingly dangerous threat. A DDoS attack targets a website, web application or other online service and seeks to render it unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources. Mitigating these threats requires fast, simple and effective DDoS protect capabilities to defend your online presence, preserve revenues and safeguard your brand.
