    DDoS Mitigation

    The methods and strategies behind stopping a distributed denial of service attack on a network or website are referred to as DDoS mitigation.

    There are multiple methods for thwarting a distributed denial of service attack, and an effective attack mitigation strategy will include more than one. Networks can employ connection-limiting controls, which slow down or stop new connection requests in the event of an attack. Rate limiting is another method of throttling malicious behavior by users.
