Rakesh Shah, Senior Director, Product Marketing & Strategy, Arbor Networks
During this session, we will be reviewing Arbor Networks’ latest global attack data (Q3, 2013) which is troubling, as it shows that the distributed denial of service (DDoS) threat has accelerated. Many enterprises assume firewalls and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) devices protect them against DDoS attacks. The reality is far more complex. The existing perimeter solutions, while addressing other security problems, are simply unable to stop DDoS, and enterprises need multi-layer DDoS protection to address this evolving threat.
Join us to learn what Arbor’s research team has uncovered while analyzing data collected through our unique Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS®), a collaborative effort with 275+ service providers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic and attack data.
Some key findings we’ll be discussing:
• For 2013, an average DDoS attack now stands at 2.64Gb/sec, up 78% from 2012
• 54% of attacks so far this year are over 1Gb/sec, up from 33% in 2012
• 37% of attacks so far this year are in the 2-10Gb/sec range, up from 15% in 2012
