Richard Meeus“Successful mitigation of DDoS attacks is part of a continuous arms race against the attackers. Organisations and cloud providers need to ensure they have dynamic and flexible protection in place to ensure rapid mitigation against volumetric and application layer attacks. This can only truly be achieved by a fully integrated hybrid solution, engaging the granular controls on premise for layer 7 attacks but being able to leverage cloud-mitigation for the more common volume-based attacks. This ensures that the services remain available at all times.”
