Today, service providers such as cloud providers, web hosting services, ISPs as well as large enterprises require an environment that is highly available and secure, as the Internet is the main way to channel an organization's services to its customers. Over the last few years, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have grown dramatically in frequency, size and complexity. While organizations have existing security strategies in place that mitigate a range of security threats, they are not sufficient enough to address new breeds of DDoS attacks that leverage large distributed "botnet" networks of compromised "zombie" machines to simultaneously launch attacks using compliant protocols that are very difficult to detect and even harder to mitigate. It is clear that additional solutions are needed to complement existing security infrastructure in a layered defense model.
