What Enterprise IT Teams Need for DDoS Protection

Businesses have never been more connected and dependent on the availability of websites and online services.

At a time when availability has never been more important, a DDoS attack has never been more innovative, dynamic or consequential. It won’t come as any surprise to security professionals that the modern DDoS attack is increasing in sophistication, scale, and frequency.

So what changed? We’ve seen a renaissance in DDoS attack tools and techniques that has led to tremendous innovation. The barrier to entry has been obliterated by new tools that enable anyone with an Internet connection and a grievance to launch a DDoS attack. This is a true game changer in terms of the threat landscape and what businesses should consider themselves a potential target of attack. It used to be certain verticals would be likely targets for a DDoS attack; finance, gaming, and e-commerce at the top of the list. Today, any business, for any reason, any real or perceived offense or affiliation, can become a target of a DDoS attack.

Beyond the democratization of DDoS are the advancements in attack techniques and targets. A DDoS attack today is in fact a series of attacks that target not just connection bandwidth, but multiple devices that make up your existing security infrastructure, such as Firewall/IPS devices, as well as a wide variety of applications that the business relies on, like HTTP, HTTPS, VoIP, DNS and SMTP.

DDoS attacks will generally fall into one of three categories:

Volumetric DDoS Attacks

This type of DDoS attack is an attempt to consume the bandwidth either within the target network/service, or between the target network/service and the rest of the Internet.

TCP State-Exhaustion DDoS Attacks

This type of DDoS attack attempts to consume the connection state tables which are present in many infrastructure components such as load-balancers, firewalls, and the application servers themselves.

Application Layer DDoS Attacks

This is the most deadly kind of DDoS attack. It can be very effective with as few as one attacking machine generating a low traffic rate (this makes these attacks very difficult to proactively detect and mitigate).

Infographic - DDoS Attack Types Across Network Layers of the OSI Model

A Denial of Service (DoS) attack attempts to deny a user access to a network resource or service. A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack originates from multiple sources, making it far more difficult to defend. Here, a range of attack types are mapped against the layers in the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model.
