Protecting College HTTP & HTTPS Applications from DDoS Attacks

DDoS attacks against encrypted web and application-based services continue to skirt university and colleges’ traditional volumetric-focused DDoS defenses.

To distinguish real users from malicious bots, institutions of higher learning are implementing a layered defense strategy that provides full attack spectrum protection with minimal exposure of private data for HTTP and HTTPS services.

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn best practices to ensure your users have unfettered access to the applications that are most important to them.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • HTTP and HTTPS attack techniques
  • How layered DDoS and application security pipelines can achieve DDoS resilience
  • Mitigation strategies that prevent collateral damage against real users
  • Techniques that minimize the expense of decrypting attack traffic

How Programmatic DNS Propels Global Application Distribution

DNS geo routing is a commonly used technique for connecting users to the closest web site or application point of presence. Most DNS services offer geo routing but not all are created equal. What they do and how they do it matters for performance and manageability. In addition,geo routing alone may not deliver the performance targets your business needs.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How georouting works on different DNS providers and what you should look for.
  • Geo-targeting vs Geo-fencing.
  • Why georouting often does not provide the best response and how to know if that is impacting your business.
  • How you can improve application performance by combining georouting with active traffic steering on the NS1 platform.

Customer-centric CDN delivery: Real user-ensured delivery for Hybrid and Multi-CDN architectures

Multi-CDN for Increased Customer Satisfaction

Delivery over a multiple CDN architecture is a best practice for modern Ops teams. Ensuring uptime and multiple delivery contingencies gives teams peace of mind and the ability to reduce the adverse effects of vendor lock-in. When you’re able to load balance your application, video, and website content delivery across multiple CDNs, you can ensure your end users are shielded from service degradations and outages. Cedexis ADP’s software-defined delivery logic makes real-time decisions on which CDNs to use, based on real-user community data, application health, and any other dataset you depend on.
