Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are internet connected businesses’ worst nightmare. A fair sized ISP could consider it a good month if they managed to go without receiving some form of a DDoS attack.
At Opsview, we understand that the first step in DDoS mitigation is awareness. For an enterprise, this could be an early alert being sent to the security incident team when the total inbound traffic hits 80% of capacity. Or for a MSP, it could be understanding the source of the attack by looking at which customer and what ports are running closer to capacity than they should be.
