The facts are clear – DDoS attacks continue to rise in size, frequency and complexity. Modern- day DDoS attacks are a dynamic combination of:

  1. Volumetric
  2. TCP State Exhaustion
  3. Application Layer Attack
  4. Encrypted Traffic Attack Vectors

Industry best practice for DDoS defense is a multi-layer, or hybrid approach that takes into
account the different types and targets of DDoS attacks. High volume flood attacks that
target internet connectivity must be mitigated in the cloud, away from the intended target
before they overwhelm local protection. Application layer, state exhaustion and encrypted
traffic attacks need to be detected and mitigated with on-premise solutions close to where
the applications or services reside.

Just as important, the solution must have an intelligent form of communication between these two layers backed by up-to-date threat intelligence to stop dynamic, multi-vector DDoS attacks.
