2. Is it possible to prevent your organization from complex and sophisticated DDoS attacks?

Many hackers find new ways to carry out DDoS attacks, making it more difficult for companies to defend themselves and causing service disruptions. These DDoS attacks can cause serious damage to the company’s online services and reputation for a long term. Thus, organizations from small to large businesses must prepare for new attacks to defend themselves in advance.
