Automating Application Delivery in a Multi-cloud World

The ability to deliver applications consistently across hybrid and multi-cloud environments has become an important need for digital business. Network and infrastructure teams are turning to highly automated deployments to support aggressive application roll out schedules and CI/CD pipelines. But how do you automate across heterogeneous networks with different constructs and capabilities? What is the architecture needed for application delivery to support day-0 as well as day-n+ automation of services? In this PoC session we explore the foundation of decision automation and orchestration for load balancers and application services.

A Decline in DDoS Attacks: Not Necessarily A Good Thing

As the frequency of DDoS attacks follows a downward trajectory, their sophistication and size have spiked. A 2018 Nexusguard report shows a 500% increase in the size of DDoS attacks and Kapersky reports an increase in the duration of mixed and HTTP flood attacks; suggesting bad actors are turning to more sophisticated methods.

NS1’s Domain Security Suite tackles the major headaches organizations face in the wake of a DDoS attack. DNS-layer protection ensures massive overcapacity and advanced filtering to block malicious traffic, and redundant DNS ensures your site never goes down even when under attack. Once the fire’s been put out, overage cost protection guarantees you won’t have to pick up a massive bill for the malicious traffic.

Join us in conversation if you’d like to learn how our customers ensure business reliability and security by implementing a comprehensive, turnkey DNS security solution.
