Distributed Denial of Service
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation is the process of protecting an organization’s network and web applications from DDoS attacks. DDoS attacks are a type of cyber attack that overwhelm a target network or server with traffic from multiple sources, making it difficult or impossible for legitimate users to access the network or application. DDoS mitigation solutions use a variety of techniques, such as traffic filtering, rate limiting, and intelligent routing, to detect and block malicious traffic and ensure that legitimate traffic can reach its destination. DDoS mitigation solutions are typically provided by third-party providers and can be implemented as a standalone solution or integrated with other security technologies, such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems.
