This white paper examines the current DoS landscape and discusses common approaches for dealing with the modern DoS threat. It explains how the Citrix® NetScaler® application delivery controller (ADC) provides a robust yet highly affordable foundation for an organization’s DoS defenses. Benefits of the NetScaler solution include:
- A rich set of protection mechanisms capable of effectively thwarting DoS attacks across all layers of the computing stack.
- The inclusion of innovative, sensible techniques for dealing with the most insidious forms of DoS attacks without having to needlessly impact legitimate transactions.
- The ability to leverage the same NetScaler footprint to also enable the transformation from the rigid, legacy datacenters of the past to the scalable and adaptable enterprise cloud networks of today.
