Action description


Protection against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks is a standard feature in most professional hosting packages today. Nevertheless, severe web service outages occur every day as a result of DDoS attacks. But how does this dichotomy come about?
The reason is the trend for cybercriminals to distribute their attacks in an increasingly complex manner across different network layers. Even when organizations have valid network and infrastructure layer protections in place, their web applications remain vulnerable if no dedicated application layer protection is implemented.
Even on-premises protection solutions quickly reach their limit in the face of persistent attacks. Since the limits of cyber defense are defined here by the company's own hardware, scaling is only possible to a limited extent and is also cost-intensive. Reflection attacks enable cybercriminals to break through these limits with little effort. To do this, the attackers abuse the properties of network technologies such as DNS, NTP or TFTP to multiply the impact of their attacks.
In his presentation, Myra security expert Thomas Wagner goes into detail about the different DDoS attack methods and explains what companies need to consider for holistic protection of digital business processes.
