    Global Network

    A global network for streamlined protection of critical assets reduces traffic backhaul, minimizes latency for legitimate traffic, helps conform to international data laws, and ensures that attacks are defeated closest to the source of attack.

Cyber-crime costs come from advanced cyber-threats and businesses' complacency when it comes to protection from distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. While many companies have attack-mitigation technology, they may not understand how critical a hybrid security model can be. A broad-scale and sustained DDoS attack can strain the capacity of on-premise appliances, and companies cannot afford to rely solely on cloud-based solutions. The ideal approach: Implement a hybrid solution that ensures network availability and access to mission-critical business functions. "The legacy approach for mitigation was to simply add network capacity to your infrastructure before it came under fire from DDoS threats, but this strategy stopped being sufficient long ago," said Alex Cruz Farmer, vice president of cloud services at NSFocus. "It is more important than ever to protect the enterprise network with a hybrid cloud protection model. This helps alleviate concerns over loss of revenue and customers, brand and reputational damage, service availability and the theft of vital data that is so often associated with DDoS attacks." Here, Farmer outlines capabilities companies should have in their hybrid cloud security model.
