Verisign provides a unique view into the attack trends unfolding online for the previous quarter, including attack statistics, behavioural trends and future outlook.
The Verisign Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Trends Report contains the observations and insights derived from mitigations enacted on behalf of, and in cooperation with, customers of Verisign DDoS Protection Services.
Verisign observed that 74 per cent of DDoS attacks were over 1 Gbps. When comparing Q1 2018 to Q4 2017, Verisign saw a 53 per cent increase in the number of DDoS attacks, and a 47 per cent increase in the average of attack peak sizes. Verisign additionally observed that 67 per cent of customers who experienced DDoS attacks in Q1 2018 were targeted multiple times during the quarter. DDoS attacks continue to remain a real threat for organisations and they cannot afford to be complacent. Our latest DDoS Trends Report show that:
- 58 per cent of attacks employed two or more attack types
- Multi-vector attacks are the norm
- Financial Services is the more frequently attacked industry
