Cyber security is one of the most attention seeking issues with the increasing advancement of technology specifically when the network availability is threaten by attacks such as Denial of Service attacks (DoS), Distributed DoS attacks (DDoS), and Economic Denial of Sustainability (EDoS). The loss of the availability and accessibility of cloud services have greater impacts than those in the traditional enterprises networks. This paper introduces a new technique to mitigate the impacts of attacks which is called Enhanced DDoS-Mitigation System (Enhanced DDoS-MS) that helps in overcoming the determined security gap. The proposed technique is evaluated experimentally and the result shows that the proposed method adds lower delays as a result of the enhanced security. The paper also suggests some future directions to improve the proposed framework.
