Cybercriminals know that an attack on the data center can bring an organization to its knees. Whether they are intent on stealing valuable corporate assets or committing acts of espionage, they focus on data center vulnerabilities and use various techniques to exploit those weaknesses. Take control of your data center security by understanding attack methods and by implementing countermeasures.
One of the most effective things you can do is deploy an application delivery controller to protect your servers and applications. Our White Paper, Data Centers in the Crosshairs: Today's Most Dangerous Security Threats, delineates how a next-generation ADC can lock down your data center against the top five threats:
- DDoS attacks
- Web application threats
- DNS server attacks
- SSL blind spots (encrypted attacks)
- Stolen credentials and brute force attacks (due to weak authentication)
