A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack prevents access to important information and blocks transactions, paralyzing the business and rendering its services unavailable. 53% of companies reported that DDoS attacks against them were used as a smokescreen to cover up other types of cybercrime, including malware, data leaks, and financial theft. Most of today’s modern DDoS attacks are actually diversions designed to take attention away from secondary attacks. Because of this shift, many organizations are ill-equipped to manage a modern-day attack.
DDoS attacks targeting our customers can be prevented by anti-DDoS technology deployed within PT&T’s network. PT&T DDoS Protect Services detects attacks and mitigates DDoS traffic, while allowing all legitimate traffic to continue to pass downstream.
