Nexusguard Addresses Key Issues Concerning Next-Gen DDos Mitigation Solutions at CIO Roundtable

Business leaders share insights at "Distributed Denial of Service - An Industry Update" forum on current information security climate

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexusguard's CTO Reggie Yam and Researcher Frank Tse sat down with a group of C-level executives to discuss key issues in today's information security landscape at a roundtable hosted by CIO Matrix. These business leaders gathered at the "Distributed Denial of Service - An Industry Update" forum to share their insights on overseeing information security in their respective businesses, which included Fortune 100 companies in logistics, insurance, IT, finance and legal services.

While most of the companies already have an information security strategy, few of them had dedicated resources to defend against DDoS attacks. Some attendees were not aware that DDoS attacks posed a significant threat to a business' ability to provide services to customers; others admitted that DDoS mitigation requires significant resources, and consequently are not implemented. Although these executives saw DDoS defense as part of an integrated security compliance and assessment, few of them realized that DDoS has the potential to become the gravest threat for businesses reliant upon the Internet.

Discussions at this intimate event mainly revolved around the damage caused by complex DDoS attacks--including application layer attacks, 0-day attacks and 1-day attacks--and how difficult it has become for the "good guys" to catch up with the technology and techniques used by attackers. Most were surprised to learn that traditional anti-DDoS measures are becoming increasingly ineffective against sophisticated DDoS tools and techniques; many were intrigued by Nexusguard's next generation anti-DDoS technology, which is based on proactive monitoring and traffic profiling.

Yam explained that proactive monitoring is the first step toward an effective DDoS mitigation strategy. Information security covers a broad range of issues, so it is difficult to find a security service provider that can cover all aspects. Nevertheless, Nexusguard believes that information security is critical for any modern business, and that no component in the security chain should be taken lightly. After all, a system is only as strong as its weakest link. Yam proposed to attendees a framework for ensuring business continuity in the Age of the Internet: monitoring, mitigation, governance and user experience.

The event was a great platform for all parties to exchange ideas about the rising implication of DDoS on modern businesses. These discussions led to the consensus that DDoS attacks have become a pressing issue for any organization that values the security of its data and services.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
"We help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams – then teams of teams – have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization. In his session at DevOps Summit, Anders Wallgren, Chief Technology Officer of Electric Cloud, will discuss how DevOps and Continuous Delivery have emerged to help connect dev...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality. Experts estimate that internet connected cars will grow to 152 million, while over 100 million internet connected wireless light bulbs and lamps will be operational by 2020. These and many other intriguing statistics highlight the importance of Internet powered devices and how market penetration is going to multiply many times over in the next few years.
Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.
