Building Resilience to Win the DDoS War by Mazebolt

Matthew Andriani, Founder and CEO, Mazebolt

All financial organizations have the challenge of providing the best customer experience possible, and 24/7 online service availability is essential to that experience. As an organization’s digital presence expands, so does its exposure to DDoS threats. Traditional DDoS mitigation services were unable to block many DDoS attacks, and in 2022, there were record-breaking successful DDoS attacks against financial organizations despite having leading DDoS mitigation services in place. In fact, threat actors know that many organizations are exposed because they rely on yesterday’s services and methodologies to combat modern DDoS threats. DDoS attack surface management is the only way to prevent successful DDoS attacks, however, some organizations have lagged in adopting a modern approach to tackle this threat and believe that their leading protection alone is enough; when attacked, they suffer significant losses and damages.

Matthew Andriani, founder and CEO of MazeBolt will delve into today’s DDoS threat landscape, the dynamic nature and enormity of the attack surface, and the steps organizations should take in order to tackle the hundreds or thousands of hidden vulnerabilities in all layers of their DDoS protection and maximize their DDoS resilience while ensuring exceptional customer experience.
