Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attackers have mastered taking control of unsecured, connected devices to cause chaos and breed fear. Weaponizing the Internet of Things (IoT) allows threat actors to exploit millions of these vulnerable IoT devices to create sophisticated, malware-based DDoS botnets to launch devastating attacks. We call this the DDoS of Things (DDoT).
If you’re one of the many companies currently relying on a legacy system for protection from these attacks, you will likely find yourself unable to withstand the scale, sophistication, and breadth of these DDoT assaults. Botnets like Mirai and its variant, Reaper, caused massive disruption, financial losses, and brand damage.
Join us at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 28th for a live Web seminar in which A10 Networks and NimbusDDOS will cover the following:
- 5 ways IoT-based attacks have forced changes in DDoS defense strategies
- Proven methods to prepare against high-intensity DDoS attacks
- Multi-vector threats, and how Linux is not immune
- Fresh approaches for IoT-DDoS resilience
This event will also feature a live test of A10’s DDoS Protection solution. You’ll be able to watch the attack as it takes place, and how quickly the A10 solution responds and protects against the attack.
