Burlington, Mass. (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, is hosting an educational webinar this coming Thursday, August 29 at 12:00 p.m. ET. The webinar will look at the rise of ideological hacktivism and its impact on the DDoS threat landscape.

Featured Presenter: Gary Sockrider, Solutions Architect for the Americas, Arbor Networks

The motives behind DDoS attacks have broadened. The rise of ideological hacktivism, for example, has led to a wide range of organizations being targeted, as seen in frequent mainstream press coverage. DDoS attacks have also increased in size and complexity.

The average volumetric attacks (up 43% so far in 2013, over 2012) are now capable of saturating the Internet connectivity of many businesses. This reality is driving end-users toward cloud service and managed security service providers (MSSPs) for protection.

Join us for this webinar to learn more about:

  •     The motives behind DDoS attacks today
  •     The latest trends in DDoS attack activity and growth
  •     The importance of scalable service provider/cloud-based DDoS mitigation services
