Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, characterized by overwhelming a target's network or servers with a flood of internet traffic, pose a significant threat to online services and operations. These attacks can cripple websites, disrupt services, and result in substantial financial and reputational damage. Understanding the mechanics of DDoS attacks and implementing effective defense strategies is crucial for organizations to protect their digital assets and maintain continuous service availability.
