5 Ways IoT Threats Can Crumble Your DDoS Defenses

March 12, 2018

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attackers have mastered the art of control when it comes to unsecured, connected devices, causing chaos and breeding fear. Weaponizing the Internet of Things (IoT) allows these threat actors to exploit millions of these vulnerable IoT devices to create sophisticated, malware-based DDoS botnets to launch devastating attacks. We call this phenomenon the DDoS of Things (DDoT).


If you’re one of the many companies currently relying on a legacy system for protection from these attacks, you will likely find yourself unable to withstand the scale, sophistication and breadth of these DDoT botnet assaults. Botnets like Mirai and its variant, Reaper, have caused massive disruption, financial losses, and brand damage.

Webinar Details

In this webinar hosted by A10 and NimbusDDOS, you will learn the following:

  • The 5 ways IoT-based attacks have forced changes in DDoS defense strategies
  • Proven methods to better prepare against high-intensity DDoS attacks
  • Multi-vector threats and how Linux is not immune
  • Fresh new approaches for IoT-DDoS resilience

This webinar will also feature a live test of A10’s DDoS Protection solution. You’ll be able to watch the attack as it takes place, and see just how quickly the A10 solution responds and protects against the attack.
