Partner Mike Overly was quoted in a CSO
article, “DDoS explained: How distributed denial of service attacks are evolving
,” about the growing strength and prevalence of denial-of-service attacks.
Overly said businesses are no longer merely concerned about DDoS attacks on themselves, but about attacks on the vast number of business partners, vendors, and suppliers on whom those businesses rely. “One of the oldest adages in security is that a business is only as secure as its weakest link,” he said. “In today’s environment (as evidenced by recent breaches), that weakest link can be, and frequently is, one of the third parties.”
