Netscout Announces Latest Threat Intelligence Report
NETSCOUT is a leading company in the Security marketplace. As part of our public service to give back to the community we publish out Threat Intelligence Report twice a year.
On September 29th, we announced the NETSCOUT 1H 2020 Threat Intelligence Report. This year’s report subtitled “Cybercrime: Exploiting a Pandemic” provides unique insight into worldwide DDoS attack activity that has occurred during the first half of 2020, much of which was during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown period. Some key findings from the report are:
There were 4.8 million DDoS attacks, up 15% YOY, and up 25% during the pandemic lockdown.
There has been a radical change in DDoS attack complexity attributed to shorter duration, faster packet rates, and 15+ vector attacks – all of which increase mitigation difficulty for defenders and risk to their organizations.
Attackers targeted online platforms and essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as e-commerce, educational, financial, and healthcare services.
Here is an interactive web page that contains key findings and the report.
You can also access to public webinars:
Sept, 29th The Cube will interview Hardik Modi, AVP Engineering – Threat and Mitigation Products about the report key findings.
Two sessions during an Oct. 12th BrightTALK Cyber Security Summit
At 2PM ET, a dedicated session with Rich Hummel, Chief Editor for the report who will discuss key findings.
At 11AM ET a panel discussion during which Roland Dobbins, a principal engineer with ASERT will discuss DDoS attack trends and predictions.
The Threat Intelligence Report is a premier piece of content from Netscout’s ATLAS Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT).
