IDC Report: DDoS Protection Requires a Refresh
This paper examines the changing DDoS landscape. Many organizations have aging DDoS protection devices as part of their infrastructure. Today’s advanced attackers are utilizing a host of advanced attack methods that require defenses geared to utilize a host of protection techniques in order to defend against attacks. The first DDoS attack to reach over 1 Tbps by leveraging IoT devices happened not long ago. Using IoT devices allowed attackers to demonstrate the dangerous potential of devices that were open to the Internet but not well maintained. IDC believes these kinds of attacks will continue as well as attacks that leverage other vectors in order to disrupt business critical services.
