Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a very real threat to today’s corporations, financial institutions, government agencies, and service providers. Attackers can cripple the availability of the Internet resources of any entity – including very large companies – with relatively little effort using low-cost (or free!) tools. They attack networks for a variety of reasons – “hacktivism”, cyber warfare, and/or financial gain. Even short-term unavailability of a company’s Internet presence can be devastating to its business.
