You may or may not be familiar with the intricacies of a Denial of services attack. There is no need for you to become an expert on the many different types of attacks. But, if you are a business owner it is important for you to gain a basic understand of this attack and the effects that it can have on your business. It is also important for you to take precautions to prevent this kind of attack from hindering your businesses ability to function properly.
What is a DoS attack?
A DoS attack is an attack by a perpetrator on your businesses network or machine. The intention of the attack is to make your system indefinitely or temporarily suspended. The perpetrator’s intention is to paralyze your server making it impossible for you to send or receive information over the internet. As you can see, the effects of this attack are horribly debilitating to your business. If you and your employees cannot use the internet it is nearly impossible for you to get any work done. Also, if your clients or customers cannot reach you they will lose faith in your business and likely have doubts about your business’ functionality in all areas.
Who is susceptible to DoS attacks?
DoS attacks are most common in large businesses such as banks and credit card payment sites or in high profile internet companies. But, every business can be the victim of a DoS attack.
How is a DoS attack acted out?
Often times perpetrators make an attempt to overload your business system with an excess of false communication. Too many hits can cause your system to freeze or reload. This could result in lost information and a great deal of downtime. Also, obviously, your system will require repair.
How does a DoS Detection Service work?
DoS Detection Services prevent attacks with firewalls, switches, filters, routers, black holing, sink piping and front end hardware and software. This multi-pronged approach allows for DoS Detection Services to pick up on false harmful communication before allowing it into your server. The communication is rerouted and the attack is prevented.
