http://pixvid.me/ANHostingConDDoS Carlos Morales, Vice President of Global Sales Engineering and Operations at Arbor Networks, takes part in a roundtable discussion at HostingCon2012. HostingCon is a top industry conference for web hosting and hosting services. DDoS attacks are a prevalent way for hackers to shut down a network's functionality for any number of reasons, often times in order to access specific data or intellectual property. Destributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS) consist of a network taking many requests at once, effectively exhausting that network's resources in order to shut down the system. Small businesses, Enterprises, and Government entities are all susceptible to DDoS attacks, making it important for any CIO, CTO, or web master to understand the various techniques and options for DDoS protection.
