Frost & Sullivan analyst Michael Suby will join Arbor Networks' Tom Bienkowski during this webinar, which takes place on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. ET.
Featured Presenter: Tom Bienkowski, Director of Product Marketing, Arbor Networks
Guest Analyst: Michael Suby, Vice President of Research, Frost & Sullivan
As a cloud service or hosting provider, the risk of a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is often higher than that of other online businesses because these providers, in effect, aggregate the risk of all their customers. An attack on one customer can affect others and potentially the entire hosting operation because of the heavy reliance on shared infrastructure. Given this looming threat, cloud and hosting providers need to proactively defend themselves to help ensure that their services remain available to all of their customers in the event of an attack.
In fact, according to the Arbor Networks 8th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, 45% of surveyed data center operators experienced DDoS attacks against their data centers, up 60% from the prior year and, of these, 94% are seeing DDoS attacks regularly. Furthermore, the most frequent target of DDoS attacks is the end-customer, according to 78% of data center operator respondents.
Join us for this webinar to learn more about:
- The latest trends in DDoS attacks
- Best practices for attack mitigation
- How to turn a major challenge into a new revenue-generating, value-added service opportunity
