This webinar will focus on examples of high profile, multi-vector attacks that use stealth components and application vulnerabilities to shut down or infiltrate an enterprise's network. Attendees will learn which types of attacks cloud providers and service providers are stopping and which types need to be handled on the internal enterprise network. John Trollinger and Dave Shackleford will also recommend a framework that will help organizations move toward a more secure stance against denial of service attacks.

There was a time when distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks threatened business operations by simply "flooding the network pipe" with traffic congestion. But that has all changed. Today's sophisticated and targeted attacks use a multitude of vectors to overwhelm and infiltrate websites and online services -- disrupting an enterprise's online presence and the customer's ability to do business with the company under attack.

While enterprises once could rely solely on their cloud service providers, ISPs, and perimeter security to protect against these attacks, many are just now learning they are vulnerable to the new types of denial of service attacks. Some of these highly targeted attacks are taking down online services while others are being used as a diversionary tactic to distract from an advanced malware attack.

This webinar will review the evolution in the denial of service landscape, discussing best practices for protecting enterprise networks from these stealthy and complex denial of service attacks.
