What is DDoS

What are DDoS Attacks?

DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks are one of the biggest threats towards businesses today. And the threat is growing ever more complex and ever more damaging. A DDoS attack is when a ‘botnet’, a network of thousands of infected computers, targets a business or other organisation and makes a massive amount of requests. As the requests appear to be valid, the target site attempts to complete the requests and, as a result, becomes paralysed.

Our combination of advanced warning technology, trained and experienced security experts, and a massive, global infrastructure offers companies a fully adaptable solution that removes the need for costly investments with the future-proofing to enable it to cope with the kinds of scales of attacks that are likley to be developed in the future.

How DDoS attacks work

A distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack is usually categorised as an instance where attackers attempt to prevent genuine traffic/users from using a service.

In most cases, a DDoS attack occurs when varying numbers of attacking systems flood the network bandwidth or resources of the target system. When a system is overloaded with traffic and therefore connections, it can no longer accept new connections which cause the system to become unavailable to the legitimate users within the business network.

The reason why attackers are using DDoS techniques more regularly is due to the fact that the multiple system approach can generate a lot of traffic quickly, which makes the attacks a lot harder to mitigate than a single system attack. This is why DDoS mitigation solutions such as the one that Computrad provide have needed to evolve to become a match for these threats.
