DDoS – WHAT IS IT?
DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) is a malicious attack that flood servers, firewalls, routers, and websites with an overwhelming volume of traffic, rendering them inaccessible to legitimate users. Mitigation techniques involve a combination of hardware, software, and network infrastructure adjustments to detect and filter out malicious traffic while allowing legitimate traffic to pass through. These measures help maintain service availability, prevent financial losses, and safeguard an organization's reputation by minimizing the impact of DDoS attacks and ensuring uninterrupted online operations. DDoS mitigation can be critical within a cybersecurity strategy. Time to move to the cloud? Cloud migration refers to the process of moving applications, data, workloads, and IT resources from on-premises infrastructure or other cloud providers to a cloud computing environment. Cloud migration offers numerous benefits, including scalability, flexibility, cost savings, and improved accessibility to resources. The migration process involves planning, execution, and ongoing management to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud. Cloud migration strategies can vary based on factors such as the complexity of applications, desired outcomes, and timelines. Common strategies include "lift and shift," partial migration, hybrid cloud deployment, and full refactoring to take advantage of cloud-native features.
