For years denial-of-service (DoS) attacks have been one of the most common and dangerous types of attack on companies – but their quality and quantity is now at an all-time high.
These days, attackers systematically scan the web for potential targets. Into their sights may come any company that depends on a functioning Internet connection – be it because their website and mail server have to be online at all times, or critical applications require remote access or mobile employees are working via the cloud. If a target is found, the cybercrime industry converts its Achilles heel into money, usually through blackmail or carrying out contract attacks on behalf of competitors. The Internet connection often suffers total failures which, within days and depending on the business model involved, take on critical dimensions.
Providing complete protection against DoS and DDoS attacks is difficult, but it can be done.
To do so, Controlware uses appliances run on-site or in the cloud – the so-called scrubbing centre – which ensure full, stable connectivity, and we can help you to plan, install and operate the appropriate solution.
