Want to Combat the DDoS of Things? Use These Five Tactics

EDITOR’S NOTE: This webinar is now available to watch on demand. Register here.

The deluge of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks shows no sign of slowing. In the second half of 2016, DDoS attacks underwent an unprecedented swell in size, volume and scope.


This DDoS bombardment was fueled by threat actors taking advantage of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to build massive botnets to launch mammoth DDoS attacks – some of which exceeded the 1 Tbps threshold for the first time on record.

This DDoS bombardment gave rise to the DDoS of Things (DoT), where threat actors take advantage of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to build massive botnets to launch mammoth, volumetric DDoS attacks.

The DoT is reaching critical mass — recent attacks have leveraged hundreds of thousands of IoT devices to attack everything from large service providers and enterprises to gaming services, media and entertainment companies.

DDoS protection and mitigation is now a must-have if you hope to withstand this barrage of sophisticated attacks.

Register now for a live A10 Networks webinar (Thursday, March 30 at 8 a.m. PST/11 a.m. EST), “5 Tactics to Combat the DDoS of Things,” to hear how to actively defend against IoT-fueled DDoS attacks.
