Akamai Releases State of Internet Security Report
According to Akamai, an incredible number of DDoS and WAF attacks occurred in Q3 2016 – with a notable attack taking place just last month. The mega attack observed was fueled by a rising new trend of IoT botnets that delivered a powerful attack of 623 Gbps. The botnet responsible for the attack was produced by a group of compromised systems and skills that turned a small attack into a mega attack.
In this quarter’s report, you will learn detailed statistics about DDoS and web application attack trends for the quarter including:
- How mega attacks continue to evolve
- The unlikely source country that now leads in volumetric attacks
- The industry that saw the highest level of bot activity
- Web application attack metrics around the Euro and the Rio summer games
