Future DDoS Trends and Mitigation Strategies in 2020 and Beyond
How Managed DDoS Services can Help Achieve Scalable, Effective DDoS Protection
Varun Haran – Managing Director, Asia & Middle East, ISMG / Andy Ng, CEO, Nexusguard / Donny Chong – Product Director, Nexusguard
Cyber threats are constantly evolving, and DDoS is a vector witnessing tremendous growth this year. DDoS attacks remain a clear and present threat to enterprises – especially communications and internet service providers (CSPs/ISPs) – and are increasing in complexity, frequency, and impact. The unprecedented peak volume, of a record 2.3 TBps DDoS in the recent attack against Amazon’s infrastructure, is an example.
Starting and maintaining an Anti-DDoS service is both expensive and challenging, because protecting against DDoS is not just about buying a box. For a CSP/ISP, providing an effective DDoS service to customers can be prohibitively expensive when you factor in costs like integration, productization, support and training. Going beyond technology, a contemporary DDoS mitigation service must address effectiveness, scalability, and affordability.
How has the DDoS landscape changed and how is it evolving? As a service provider how can you develop a comprehensive and actionable plan to both mitigate DDoS attacks and monetize your Anti-DDoS solution – retaining existing customers and adding new ones?
Please join ISMG’s Varun Haran for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on new approaches and best practices relevant to CSP/ISPs to meet current challenges.
Discussion topics will include:
- The changing nature of the DDoS Landscape
- The challenges around offering effective Anti-DDoS products to the market
- The relevance and effectiveness on Managed DDoS mitigation, as a service
Joining Varun to provide expert insight and case studies are Andy Ng, CEO, and Donny Chong, Product Director, from Nexusguard.
