Partner Mike Overly was quoted in a CSO
article, “DDoS Explained: How Denial of Service Attacks Are Evolving
,” covering how distributed denial of service (DDoS) attackers are now able to increase their reach by targeting organizations that depend on internet service providers and cloud providers.
“Businesses are no longer merely concerned with DDoS attacks on themselves, but attacks on the vast number of business partners, vendors, and suppliers on whom those businesses rely,” said Overly. “One of the oldest adages in security is that a business is only as secure as its weakest link. In today’s environment (as evidenced by recent breaches), that weakest link can be, and frequently is, one of the third parties.”
