They allow for immediate, automatic identification and reaction to short, frequent attacks, while delivering the power to deal with even the most massive assaults. The front-line system will generally handle smaller attacks (under 2 Gbps, such as small floods or application-layer attacks), but can off-load the traffic to the scrubbing center in the case of larger attacks.

Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have been on the rise in recent years. These attacks can easily elude and overwhelm most common defenses, paralyzing their targets. Investing in some type of dedicated DDoS defense is now a must for many businesses. The best way to effectively deal with these attacks is with a multi-tiered defense. This includes on-site detection and mitigation devices, combined with the power of an off-site scrubbing center.

Vann Abernethy, senior product manager of NSFOCUS, and Jeff Lyon, founder of Black Lotus, present six ways a multi-tiered security strategy benefits businesses.
