DDoS attacks are becoming increasingly smart and stealthy in their methods. Waiting for an application to become unresponsive before taking action is already too late.

For optimal defense, a DDoS early warning system should be part of a company’s solution. Continuous and automated monitoring is required in order to recognize an attack, sound the alarm and initiate the response plan.

According to Corero Network Security (CNS: LN), a leader in on-premises Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense Systems for enterprises, data centers and hosting providers, for all the pain and suffering DDoS attacks have caused, there are a number of best practices that companies can implement to reduce their risk. The most effective defense against DDoS attacks requires expert preparation of defensive resources, ongoing vigilance and a rapid, organized response.

“The cat-and-mouse game between IT administrators, criminals and hacktivists has intensified in 2011 as the number of application-layer DDoS attacks has exploded. Coupled with an increase in political and ideological hacktivism, companies have to be extremely diligent in identifying and combating attempts to disable their websites, steal proprietary information and to deface their Web applications, ” said Mike Paquette, chief strategy officer, Corero Network Security.

This slideshow features Corero’s top five recommendations for mitigating the effects of DDoS attacks.
