Why knowing the location of your attacker is key in defending against DDoS
Distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are more frequent today than they’ve ever been, according to the latest report by Verisign. In the final quarter of 2015, DDoS attacks globally rose by 85% compared with the previous year – and 15% on the previous quarter alone. Not only that – they’re also getting more dangerous, deploying higher volumes of packets than ever before.
DDoS attacks aren’t just an annoyance; they can be extremely damaging. Offline websites and networks are non-trading websites and non-operating networks, which can lead to substantial revenue losses.
