Nokia (NYSE: NOK) Deepfield announced released the findings of its worldwide DDoS traffic research, which looked at service provider internet traffic involving thousands of routers on the web between January 2020 and May 2021.
Increasing DDoS threat potential
Dr. Craig Labovitz, Nokia Deepfield CTO, presented the findings at NANOG82. He stated that due to the rapidly growing open and insecure internet services and IoT devices, there had been a more than 100% increase in daily DDoS peak traffic and newly identified DDoS threat potential of over 10 Tbps. The threat potential is four to five times higher than the most significant current attacks reported.
In a world where attackers continually use opportunistic resources to stage their attacks, Nokia Deepfield discovered that the availability of DDoS for hire solutions had enhanced the risk potential of an existing botnet, IoT, and cloud-based attack types in the last 15 months. Many high-intensity and high-bandwidth,) According to the findings, cyberattacks originate in a small number of internet addresses, which show that most DDoS attacks occur in less than 50 hosting firms and regional providers.
The fight against DDoS is becoming extremely relevant as the internet becomes a necessity. Individual and large-scale connection and service availability can be seriously impacted by these large-scale Cyberattacks, resulting in production and operational losses worth hundreds of thousands.
Cloud builders looking for secure DDoS detection and auto mitigation
To safeguard their network infrastructures, services, customers, cloud builders, service providers, and network operators increasingly seek precise DDoS detection and cost-effective, automatic mitigation.
The new advanced Nokia Deepfield Defender detects DDoS attacks quickly and precisely, allowing for quick avoidance of volumetric DDoS cyber attacks at the edge. Deepfield Defender provides an intelligent and automated solution to prevent and minimize the security risks associated with a new generation of DDoS attacks.
