DDoS Attack Protection

Summary

+ Use multi-layered defense strategy to protect against DDoS attacks.
+ Keep your software and systems up-to-date and patched.
+ Monitor network traffic for anomalies and suspicious behavior.
+ Implement a content delivery network (CDN) to distribute traffic.
+ Use security tools such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDS), and intrusion prevention systems (IPS).
+ Utilize cloud-based DDoS protection services.
+ Have an incident response plan in place for when a DDoS attack occurs.
