Topic: Protecting the Cloud Computing Environment with CEP Shield against DDoS Attacks
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are emerging as one of the most concerning cyberthreats to cloud services. While organizations have benefited from cloud features such as the ability to store and process large volumes of data, increased efficiency, and reduced network latency, threat actors and cybercriminals are also leveraging sophisticated techniques to exploit cloud applications through DDoS attacks. Due to the massive data streams generated in the cloud, ongoing data monitoring is a crucial way to gain actionable intelligence that enables security issues to be detected and mitigated. Technologies like event stream and complex event processing (CEP) systems are designed to process, analyze, and monitor large volumes of data in real-time. CEP systems can be used to gain critical insights into DDoS-related security events, which can help cyber and IT teams detect and prevent DDoS attacks. This webinar will discuss the impact of CEP systems and how they can shield cloud applications and data against DDoS attacks.
- How adopting cloud technology impacts the DDoS threat landscape
- Various challenges associated with DDoS attacks in cloud environments
- The role of CEP systems in detecting advanced DDoS attacks
- How CEP systems correlate with elements of cloud environments to mitigate DDoS attacks
