Understand the threat,
mitigate against harm

Ddos in the cloud

Corporate networks – and their users – are directly targeted by cyber attacks due to the increasing use of cloud solutions. But how present is the threat? And what measures should your company take?

Especially DDoS attacks (Distributed Denial of Service), in which excessive levels of traffic flood the bandwidth or resources of a targeted system, are growing in frequency and intensity. Not only are they increasingly frequent,  they are widespread and indiscriminate – which makes them harder to plan for and recover from.

800 Gbps – DDoS attack size increasing

The largest attack reported in 2016 was 800 Gbps, which is in excess of the level most ISPs can withstand without suffering infrastructure-level damage or dropping clients’ legitimate traffic. And while we’re accustomed to reading in the media about ‘sustained’ attacks, the truth is an attack lasting as little as one minute could still lead to many hours of unplanned downtime.

Arbor Cloud runs the largest purpose-built DDoS mitigation network available, with the capacity to mitigate against even the largest attacks. Arbor Cloud’s capacity is on target to reach 8Tbps. That’s 10 times the size of the largest attack reported in 2016 ...
