DDoS attacks are the most important security concerns facing customers that are moving their applications to the cloud. Discover what DDOS attacks are, why they're important, and how Cyclotron's offerings can protect your business and customer-sensitive data.

What is DDoS?

Distributed denial of service attacks, also known as DDoS attacks, is a cybercrime where the attacker floods a server with internet traffic to prevent people from accessing connected online services and sites. This is a very common cyber-attack that is bad for a company's reputation as it discredits their skills and frustrates potential/current customers.
