Bottlenecks and ghosts in the wire

You need to minimize bottlenecks in your networks. However strong your policies to secure your organization’s networks from DDoS attacks, a simple misconfiguration could cause lethal damage to your online identity. For instance, consider the case wherein a server is able to handle over 50,000 connections in parallel but has been configured to allow only 1,000 parallel connections. This is a classic example of a bottleneck within a corporate network.  Another instance is that of lack of visibility of the network. If the administrator cannot clearly see what’s happening inside the wires, then a ghost could enter the wire anytime and damage the entire network!
