Partner Mike Overly was quoted in the IT World article, “DDoS Explained: How Distributed Denial of Service Attacks Are Evolving.”
Overly told IT World that DDoS attacks are changing and evolving, and those changes can impact organizations and expand their risk. “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,” he said. “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,” he says.
