Tackling and Eliminating Technical Debt

Legacy applications, disparate platforms and processes, and outdated technology have caused organizations to amass technical debt that’s dragging down modernization initiatives. According to Forrester Research, maintaining older applications and technology typically consumes 70% or more of the technology budget – and ignoring it drags down modernization efforts.

In this webinar, we explore ways to reduce technical debt and how you can use DNS as a shortcut to eliminating decades of technical debt in your organization.

  • A Decline in DDoS Attacks: Not Necessarily A Good Thing Recorded: Jul 30 2019 12 mins
    Suomo Nandi, Solutions Engineer at NS1
    As the frequency of DDoS attacks follows a downward trajectory, their sophistication and size have spiked. A 2018 Nexusguard report shows a 500% increase in the size of DDoS attacks and Kapersky reports an increase in the duration of mixed and HTTP flood attacks; suggesting bad actors are turning to more sophisticated methods.

    NS1’s Domain Security Suite tackles the major headaches organizations face in the wake of a DDoS attack. DNS-layer protection ensures massive overcapacity and advanced filtering to block malicious traffic, and redundant DNS ensures your site never goes down even when under attack. Once the fire’s been put out, overage cost protection guarantees you won’t have to pick up a massive bill for the malicious traffic.
