Research: Organizations Need DDoS Attack, DNS Failure Safeguards
Urgent need for robust DDoS protection and reliable and secure DNS infrastructure demonstrated.
Two new research studies commissioned by VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN) show that a large number of organizations are ill-equipped to prevent and respond to web infrastructure failures caused by DDoS attacks and DNS failures. Sys Con reports that VeriSign will be sharing its research at Interop in order to demonstrate the urgent need for robust DDoS protection, reliable and secure DNS infrastructure, and advanced threat intelligence.
"This research illustrates the dire costs of insufficient web and network protection to businesses spanning all industries. When a DDoS attack or DNS failure hits a website or network, companies are losing significant revenue and employee productivity, and are likely seeing decreasing customer satisfaction and loyalty, said Ben Petro, senior vice president of Verisign's Network Intelligence and Availability Group. Businesses are facing a number of threats in today's economy. Implementing Verisign's suite of trusted network intelligence and availability services will help ensure that DDoS attacks and DNS failures are not among them."
