The Mirai botnet is just the most high-profile example of the new weaponization of DDoS. Attacks are stronger than ever, and multilayer defenses are needed to prevent disruption and distraction, says Darren Anstee of Arbor Networks.

In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Anstee discusses:

  • The power of today's top DDoS attacks;
  • The proliferation of botnets for hire;
  • The importance of multiple layers defenses on premises and in the cloud.

Anstee has 20 years of experience in pre-sales, consultancy and support for telecom and security solutions. As chief security technologist at Arbor Networks, he works across the research, strategy and pre-sales aspects of Arbor's traffic monitoring, threat detection and mitigation solutions for service providers and enterprises around the world. He previously spent more than eight years at core routing and switching product vendors.
