Over the past several years, the industrialization of attacks and the rise of hacktivism have resulted in an explosion of powerful and destructive DDoS attacks. Using off-the-shelf toolkits, criminals can quickly build botnets of thousands or even millions of computers. Malicious users can rent these botnets to unleash destructive DDoS attacks on virtually any victim. The DDoS mitigation techniques presented in this paper are just a few of the measures that organizations can undertake to combat DDoS attacks. Imperva Cloud DDoS Protection, a powerful, comprehensive cloud-based security service, offers organizations a cost-effective and easy solution for stopping DDoS attacks.
