DDoS Protection Needs To Be Verified and Measured
DDoS attacks can severely cripple business-critical applications and bring business operations down, impacting revenues and the brand. They put large strains on companies' global networks and their upstream ISP networks. Cloud-based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation services or an on-site mitigation strategy are two methods employed by companies to stop or lessen these unpredictable attacks.
Both internal and external network visibility is essential to understanding and ensuring that your user experiences are not impacted in the event your network experiences a DDoS attack. The first step in remediation is for you to continuously identify potential DDoS threats that impact your users and secondly to monitor how effective your internal mitigation or cloud-based mitigation services are performing during these attacks. ThousandEyes DDoS monitoring performs both of these DDoS attack responses and visualizes the impacts, while recording performance data that can be shared in real-time with internal IT teams or external mitigation services personnel, enabling detailed collaborative forensics.
