DDos Attacks Increase 32 Percent YOY
DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack protection service Prolexic Technologies published a report on the top 10 attack trends for 2013.
Prolexic collected data from DDoS attacks launched against its client base in order to understand the threat of such attacks, and indicated that the tools and tactics used by malicious actors reflect the on-going evolution of the DDoS threat. The top DDoS attack trends according to Prolexic can be seen in the infographic below.
“It is critical in 2014 that enterprise defenses continue to keep pace with the changing DDoS threat,” said Stuart Scholly, president of Prolexic. “In addition to increasing vigilance and knowledge, enterprises should also validate services from any mitigation providers they have retained to ensure the latest threats can be blocked quickly and effectively.”
