Denial of service attacks grew larger and more complex in 2021, with peak attack bandwidth now more than five times larger than it was in 2020. From disgruntled customers, to organized cybercrime and even modern-day cyber warfare, DDoS attacks are still a go-to for many threat actors, with effects ranging from temporary disruption of an online event to outages of critical infrastructure. Increasingly, cybercrime gangs also use DDoS attacks to coerce payments for ransomware demands.
While DDoS mitigation services are getting better at deflecting large volumetric DDoS attacks, the shift in tactics to focus on protocol and application DDoS makes mitigation more complex. This webinar will take you through the recent F5 Labs DDoS Trends report, which analyzed thousands of attacks over the past two years to uncover how DDoS attacks are changing.
In addition to the focus on the report, this webinar will also cover DDoS mitigation best practices for Silverline customers, including some useful tips and tricks to get the most out of your service.
