Many attack vectors, one objective.

DDoS attacks range from pranksters having fun to targeted acts of retaliation, protest, theft and extortion. Depending on their skills, attackers may use readily available DDoS tools or launch more sophisticated attacks. Ultimately, all DDoS attacks have one objective—to disrupt service availability and have a significant impact on businesses.



Suddenly, your applications aren’t available and you can’t do business with customers.



There are four main types of attacks, although they’re most often combined:

Volumetric—flood-based attacks that can be at layer 3, 4, or 7.
Asymmetric—invoke timeouts or session-state changes.
Computational—consume CPU and memory.
Vulnerability-based—exploit application software vulnerabilities.


The most damaging DDoS attacks mix volumetric attacks with targeted, application-specific attacks.
