Distributed Denial of Service attacks or DDoS attacks involve the master cracker or attacker who plans the attack and executes it through the aid of botnet, a network of compromised computer systems or zombies. Collectively these systems create an attack which involves high traffic flow, increased bandwidth usage or overflow of packets or connections to overwhelm the victimized server.
The targeted server is bombarded with bogus information requests, hence disabling the main system and depriving genuine users of access to the targeted website. This attack inhibits the smooth functioning of the target system disabling them temporarily or permanently.
Effective DDoS protection services practice various mitigation techniques some of which are mentioned here. The DDoS mitigation software and hardware should be constantly updated as hackers also attack using the latest technology. With obsolete protection tools, the latest mode of attacks cannot be inhibited and the attackers can access your system to carry out malicious purposes with ease.
With high end DDoS mitigation services, offered by providers such as Sharktech.net, all traffic to the userâ€™s network are centrally monitored. Along with monitoring the traffic, the recent tools make analysis of network traffic up to the minuscule level possible. These devices also help recognize the normal traffic patterns and this information facilitates early threat detection, alerts and reporting.
An efficient alerting mechanism provides timely warning of any potential threat which helps combat DDoS attack before damage can be done. A database of top attackers, top attacks and destination also helps users to be aware of and avoid such potential dangers. Â
