Comments from Arbor Networks - Mumsnet attack
August 2015 by Arbor Networks
“The attack on Mumsnet is another example of how effective DDoS attacks can be at disrupting Internet services. Any organisation that is reliant in any way on Internet services need to ensure that the availability of those services is adequately protected.
“The best-practice defence against DDoS is a layered solution compromising of both a cloud and ISP-based DDOS protection service, which has the capability to stop high-magnitude attacks, combined with an always-on on-premise solution, to deal proactively with even the most stealthy and sophisticated attacks. DDoS is a well-understood threat, and we can protect ourselves if we use the right solutions, services and processes.”
