"The majority of today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are merely a smokescreen, designed not to deny service but to distract from the real motive — usually data theft and network infiltration. In addition to service outages, latency and downtime, short attacks allow cyber criminals to test for vulnerabilities within a network and monitor the success of new methods without being detected."
"As sophisticated threats continue to evolve, effective security analysis requires continuous visibility into the traffic flowing between the protected network and the Internet. A solution that identifies attack vectors, analyzes the digital fingerprint, and gathers intelligence to prepare against emerging threats takes your DDoS resiliency plan beyond just attack mitigation."
