Live DDoS Attack Simulation on Websites & APIs


DDoS attacks have increased by 75% in Q2 when compared to Q1, 2023 as per Indusface research – State of Application Security.

Launching a 1-hour DDoS attack costs only a couple of bucks on the dark web.

So, how does one fortify defenses to ensure app and API availability in case of an attack?

In this live attack simulation, Karthik Krishnamoorthy (CTO – Indusface) demonstrates a wide variety of attacks and mitigation measures.

Key takeaways from the demonstration:

  • The limitations of host-based rate-limits 
  • Building multi-pronged mitigation measures ranging from alerts to captchas to blocks
  • Preventing DDoS attacks on APIs
  • How Unmetered DDoS mitigation works
