Access three DDoS case studies that recreate real life attack scenarios to gauge business readiness & understand improvement strategies. 

Case Study 1 - DDoS Testing Case Study - British Library

The British Library had recently deployed an on-premise DDoS mitigation appliance to protect critical IP assets. These assets were held within multiple data centres each with separated high capacity Internet links. This mitigation solution represented a significant investment in protection against the threat of DDoS, but the system was unproven in the deployed environment and its performance under attack had not been verified.

Cast Study 2 - DDoS Testing Case Study- Dutch Retail Bank

As part of normal operational procedure this Dutch retail bank sought to test the capability of each data centre within a single long maintenance window. This would test both the ability to repel a range of DDoS attack types and confirm whether it had the ability to continue operation to internet based customers in the live active configuration it had adopted.

Case Study 3 - DDoS Testing Case Study - Leading DNS Provider

This company was looking to set up new service clusters within alternate hosting centres and wanted to make sure that the new infrastructure being put in place could cope with both the maximal expected load, and a DNS based DDoS attack, before the service went live. The DDoS attack testing service was commissioned to ensure that the relevant mitigation, reporting, and monitoring tools in place worked.
