    Clean pipe Internet connections provided by ISPs offer a false sense of security. On-premise DDoS defense solutions installed immediately in front of application and database servers are required to provide a granular response to flooding-type attacks, as well as to detect and deflect the increasingly frequent application-layer DDoS attacks. For optimal defense, on-premise DDoS protection solutions should be deployed in concert with automated monitoring services to rapidly identify and react to evasive, sustained attacks.

For optimal defense, on-premise DDoS protection solutions should be deployed in concert with automated monitoring services to rapidly identify and react to evasive, sustained attacks.

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.
