Why Layer 7 Firewalls are Better for Cybersecurity Against DDoS Attacks | Secure Cloud Backup Software | Nordic Backup

Firewalls receive and analyze traffic based on layers of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model. The OSI model is an industry standard that describes the way systems communicate.

Layer 7 is the top layer of the OSI model, and it provides the most information available to a firewall. It also represents the most common distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks seen today, which is why layer 7 firewalls are preferred over older firewall standards.
