Length:  9 pages

In this white paper, we’ll look at Distributed Denial of Service  (DDoS) attacks, why they pose a threat to hospitality networks, and how to protect against them. As we are expected to host more information on our network, we increase our risk for an attack that can shut down vital services or serve to support a malicious actor out to steal private data. Customers expect to be able do everything online, and won’t tolerate any interruption in service. This expectation inhibit a situation where an attacker is holds your web services hostage, and you have to choose between paying them off or apologizing to a lot of angry customers.
