NETSCOUT Threat Intelligence Report: Findings Summary 1st half of 2018

The symbiotic nature of the digitally transformed world also adds vulnerability, as malicious actors, nation states, criminal organizations, or even individuals can capitalize on the interdependencies that wind through our pervasively connected world.

The availability of innovative DDoS attack tools and techniques has lowered the barrier of entry, which means an increase in the number of attackers launching DDoS attacks. Attack targets have also diversified. It used to be that finance, gaming, and e-commerce verticals were likely targets. Today, any organization, for any real or perceived offense or affiliation, can become a target of a DDoS attack. This while APT group and crimeware activity continues to grow, as actors in this space develop and unleash increasingly sophisticated attacks worldwide.

Attend this webcast to learn:

•Understand what is happening on the DDoS Landscape – the largest attacks and what is driving them
•How Nation-State activity is going ‘internet-scale’
•Botnets, crimeware, intrusions – how these facets of the threat landscape tie in together

  • Use Network Data to Resolve Security Incidents Aug 12 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    NETSCOUT Security Experts: Robert Derby & Mark Doering
    As the world tries to grasp what the new normal is after the pandemic, the drive for Network and Security teams to collaborate is accelerating. Many teams NETSCOUT works with have quickly realized that a shared perspective of the network is crucial for increased network performance, risk reduction, and faster incident response times.

    In this webinar we will explore:
    • How the pandemic created a rapid shift and expansion of the network
    • Why the exponential increase in the attack surface is here to stay
    • Advantages of using network derived data to solve complex issues
  • What’s Protecting Your Firewall? Recorded: Jul 20 2021 27 mins
    Tom Bienkowski, Director Product Marketing
    Your firewall is protecting your organization from cyberthreats. But what’s protecting your firewall? Firewalls and devices like VPN concentrators, IDS/IPS, load balancers etc., all have one thing in common. They are stateful devices. That makes them very susceptible to DDoS attacks.

    Join NETSCOUT in this webinar to learn:

    • Why stateful devices like firewalls are susceptible to DDoS attacks

    • Why industry best practices (and firewall vendors) recommend that you deploy stateless DDoS protection in front of your firewall to protect it and other stateful devices

    • How NETSCOUT Arbor Edge Defense can be used as a first and last line of network perimeter defense to protect the availability and performance of your firewall and other stateful infrastructure from DDoS attacks and other cyberthreats
  • Continuous Monitoring with AWS Security Hub & NETSCOUT Omnis Cyber Investigator Recorded: Jun 30 2021 46 mins
    Scott Ward, Prin Solns Architect & Josh Dean, Sr Ptnr Solns Architect, AWS; Rossitza Grozeva, Dir Prod Mgt, NETSCOUT
    As organizations migrate workloads to the cloud, infrastructure becomes more hybrid in nature, making end-to-end visibility a necessary tool in combating threats across the global attack surface.

    As a validated Networking, Migration, and Public Sector Partner, NETSCOUT Systems, Inc. collaborated with AWS to provide first-of-its-kind end-thru-end visibility across the hybrid cloud to efficiently mitigate security risks while decreasing operational overhead.

    Join us to learn how integration between NETSCOUT Omnis Cyber Investigator (OCI) with a global threat intelligence feed and AWS Security Hub enables IT teams to effectively detect, validate, investigate, and respond to cyber threats - quickly and efficiently.
  • Triple Extortion Attacks on the Rise Recorded: Jun 29 2021 28 mins
    Tom Bienkowski, Director Product Marketing; Richard Hummel, Manager of Threat intelligence
    A traditional ransomware attacks where the cybercriminal breaches a network encrypts data and demands payment for a decryption code is a tough challenge. Add a threat to expose data and the situation is even more critical. But if that was not enough, now threat actors are adding DDoS attacks to the mix to ratchet up the pressure.

    Join this NETSCOUT webinar to learn what you can do to be protected and prepared when your organization is the target.
  • Ransomware Gangs Up Their Game to Include Triple Extortion Recorded: Jun 17 2021 13 mins
    Tom Bienkowski, Director Product Marketing; Roland Dobbins, Principal Engineer; & Richard Hummel, Mgr of Threat intelligence

  • The next cyber attack will challenge your anti-DDoS defence Recorded: May 18 2021 48 mins
    Virgile Dailly, Security Overlay Account Manager, NETSCOUT
    This webinar will be presented in French.

    Threat intelligence must go beyond merely collecting and analysing attack data. It should make a marked improvement over existing staff and processes. This information must be actionable with the risk from each threat being clear, and the actions to be taken evident.

    Looking at how stateless DDoS protection works and asking from which dangers, apart from DDoS attacks, can it protect we will, using explanation based on the ATLAS® Intelligence Feed (AIF) for NETSCOUT® Arbor Edge Defense (AED), look at the information in a security feed and how this should enable you to quickly address advanced attacks, whether they are DDoS-related or part of a larger advanced threat campaign against your organisation.

  • Bridging security visibility gaps and building stakeholder commonality Recorded: Nov 24 2020 36 mins
    Kevin Ware-Lane, Security Sales Manager (UK & Ireland), NETSCOUT
    The ability to react and respond in a timely manner to security incidents, failure scenarios and application performance issues means bringing data and teams together in a cohesive way.

    Networks, infrastructure, applications, and security operations all surface their data through a plethora of tools often with different, non-aligned viewpoints, but cohesive visibility is paramount to keeping the business operational and effective.

    In this session we will discuss the need and capabilities for:

    -Extending visibility between teams and silos by building a common reference point; Visibility Without Borders. Giving teams actionable intelligence they need, with the right role-specific toolset, using the Smart Data they all share.
    -Re-gaining security visibility in an encrypted World.
