Service providers (SPs) have always focused on utilizing tools and applications that provide insight into network performance and vulnerabilities. However, as the telecom domain moves closer to the cloud, visibility becomes even more important in a security context as the threat landscape and the very nature of threat vectors continues to evolve.
As a result, SPs need to adjust their security strategies to manage all types of attacks, including relatively low-volume attacks. Join us as Shai Haim, security product marketing manager at Radware, and Jim Hodges, research director at Heavy Reading, discuss hidden DDoS floods and why this is one of the key challenges in securing large-scale networks.
Attendees will learn how large service providers handle visibility challenges and how a tier 1 carrier was able to revise its security stance to address these visibility challenges. In addition, attendees will understand the limitations of traditional security solutions used today and what the future holds.
