Cyber attacks continue to be a large problem for companies and organizations. They often involve multiple compromised systems attacking a single target system, usually multiple web servers. In a cloud environment, a DDoS attack can reduce the performance of cloud services by shutting down servers, disrupting operations and websites, and leading to unauthorized access and data theft. Traditional firewalls and intrusion-prevention systems are no longer enough to thwart these attacks. By collaborating with security partners, Sycomp notifies organizations when an attack occurs, directs malicious traffic away from the infrastructure, blocks and removes it before it reaches a network, and keeps business—as well as revenue streams—flowing.
