Are you prepared for onslaught of DDoS attacks?

01/31/2013 | Security |

If you're setting up web servers this year, one of the things you're going to have to think about is what steps you need to take to minimise any potential disruption that may be caused by Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. This is set to be a growing area of concern for many companies, as the number of incidents is on the increase. In fact, a recent survey by Radware, reported by CNet, found DDoS attacks on businesses rose by 170% in 2012 compared to the previous year.

But despite this rapidly-increasing problem, many firms aren't doing enough to make sure they can defend against such attacks, which flood a web server with traffic, making it very difficult for legitimate visitors to find a connection and essentially bringing a website offline. The survey warned that the protections many organisations have in place are nowhere near sufficient to manage this risk, with Radware saying many companies can be compared to "someone who brings a knife to a gun fight".

Greater complexity of attacks
This is because the attacks businesses are facing are getting more complex all the time. The study found 58% of server-based botnet attacks last year were rated as at least seven out of ten for complexity - up from just 23% in 2011.

As a result, many of the basic security measures firms have in place are no longer sufficient, particularly when it comes to defending against prolonged assaults on a server - something hackers are taking advantage of.

It was noted few businesses have the resources or protection in place to withstand long-term, drawn-out cyber attacks, which is a growing problem as the number of attacks lasting more than one week doubled in 2012.

The report should therefore serve as a reminder to businesses that they can't afford to be complacent when it comes to protecting their web servers. Radware suggested that instead of implementing a 'pre and post' incident tactic, firms need to investigate 'on-demand solutions that can tackle threats head-on as soon as they appear.
