DENIAL OF SERVICE

Whether a stand-alone attack to force payment of ransoms, or a means to disrupt and open a system for a network penetration, denial of service attacks obstinately remain a threat to organizations – whether online retail, public entities, or political groups.  Kivu has advised such organizations on pre-emptive safeguards, responded to their defense during attacks, and worked with partners to block malicious traffic before it even hits our clients’ networks.

  • Safeguarding/strengthening networks & operations to prevent or minimize the disruption of DDOS and DOS attacks
  • Assisting during an attack to reduce impact and safeguard critical operations, including technical mitigation
  • Confirming that a denial of service attack is not cover for a secondary stealth penetration of the network
