Denial of service (DoS) and worm attacks are some of the most menacing threats to companies in the digital age. They can cripple and shut down web sites and online services. These attacks are proving themselves to be the most expensive type of cybercrime, costing U.S. businesses and the government millions of dollars a year. Only a network-based DoS mitigation solution can provide realistic protection to enterprise resources and capabilities.
