Mistakes in the organization of protection against the risks associated with DDoS attacks almost always lead to a reduction in the resilience of their Internet resources to these risks, and it is impossible to compensate for them solely by connecting anti-DDoS services, even when they are most advanced. The situation is often aggravated by the fact that the combination of several flaws increases their overall negative impact. In this article, we will analyze some of these flaws we encountered while building protection against DDoS risks at a rather large client managing several hundred websites.
It often happens that customers of DDoS protection services believe that just by connecting to these services they are fully protected.
