Cyber security awareness is at all-time highs in the wake of record breaking data breaches, cyber espionage, cyber warfare, and sophisticated threats. While threats to data confidentiality and network integrity remain a top-of-mind concern, businesses are reminded daily of the importance of protecting availability as well.

Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) is a type of attack that leverages the massive stolen computing power provided by infected endpoints to flood targets with traffic. The goal of a DDoS attack is to disrupt the online operations of a target organisation by consuming available network bandwidth or server resources.

This white paper published by Frost & Sullivan and Cisco examines the role, capabilities, and advantages of service providers in the DDoS mitigation process, as well as how this role might develop in the future.
