A recent TripWire study highlights the growing problem of cyberattacks, and whether IT staff feel that their companies have the right combination of skills and technology to cope with various types of cyber threats.
Several months after the now-infamous DDoS attack on DNS provider Dyn last October, the incident continues to make headlines. Earlier this month, reports emerged about the scale of customer losses that the company experienced in the wake of the attack.

Corero's new product, the SmartWall® Service Portal, enables Internet Service providers and hosting providers to offer DDoS Protection as-a-Service (DDPaaS) to their tenants in a flexible and economic model. A few years ago, such DDoS technology was not available; now, it’s the wave of the future.
