Firewalls, VPN concentrators, IDS/IPS, load balancers, etc., all have one thing in common. They are stateful devices. That makes them very susceptible to DDoS attacks – more specifically, state exhaustion attacks. To protect these devices from DDoS attacks, you need dedicated, stateless DDoS attack protection technology deployed in front of your stateful infrastructure. Join Netscout and (ISC)2 on December 6, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern/10:00 a.m. Pacific as we examine:
· Why stateful devices like firewalls are susceptible to DDoS attacks.
· Why industry best practices (and firewall vendors) suggest deploying stateless DDoS protection in front of your firewall to protect it and other stateful devices.
· How and why organizations should prepare and defend around the first and last line of network perimeter defense to protect the availability and performance of firewalls and other stateful infrastructure from cyber threats.
