Distributed reflection denial of service attacks, or DrDoS attacks, increased significantly in 2013.

For both victims the effect is similar – slow performance or an outage that prevents legitimate users from accessing your site. This infographic from Prolexic explains why DrDoS attacks are on the rise and best practices to stop them.
