As more businesses migrate to cloud-based communications, whether Skype for Business Cloud PBX or a UCaaS platform, protecting the communications network becomes an immediate concern. Every business understands the importance of keeping their lines of communications open, avoiding downtime and keeping themselves safe from attack, so it’s no wonder that security is a top priority. According to a report released by Akamai earlier this year, DDoS and web application attacks are up 23% and 26% year over year. And once a hacker has you targeted, they don’t let up. The rate of repeat DDoS attacks has skyrocketed and target organizations get hit an average of 29 times, with one company targeted 283 times.
