Read the ebook for more details about DDoS attacks and how to protect your organization.
How often do DDoS attacks really occur?
Large attacks, like the 1.12 Tbps attack in the 1st half of 2020, get media attention, and are impactful. However, during the same time over 74% of attacks are less than 1 Gbps and 56% last less than 10 minutes. This makes it harder to defend against and means you must be able to detect and mitigate before damage is done.

What type of protection do we need?
The best practice in DDoS protection is a hybrid approach: a cloud service to manage the large volumetric attacks and an on-premise device to catch the state exhaustion attacks.
Why aren’t firewalls enough?
Any stateful device, including a firewall, is subject to state-exhaustion attacks. Having a stateful firewall fronting servers or your entire data center puts your environment at risk.
Let the firewall do what it was designed to do – protect confidentiality. Let dedicated DDoS protection products maintain availability.
