Looking for community intelligence consultants in Nokia Deepfield discovered that almost all DDoS attacks originate from less than 50 internet hosting companies.
The researchers analyzed a large network model and traced the origins of most DDoS attacks (by frequency and quantity of site visitors).
Nokia Deepfield undertook the analysis following its remark that visitors to the DDoS site increased by 40 to 50% following the implementation of the COVID-19 lockdown measures. Since then, the depth, frequency, and class of attacks have increased further.
Daily “high levels” of DDoS increased by 100%, from 1.5 Tbps in January 2020 to over 3 Tbps in May 2021.
By no means has the need for robust connectivity been more evident than in the past 12 months. Unfortunately, this is something cybercriminals have taken advantage of with high prevalences of DDoS attacks and malware.
Nokia Deepfield CTO Dr Craig Labovitz said:
“It is also essential for every participant within the community security ecosystem – end customers, distributors, service providers, cloud builders, regulators and governments – to understand the risks that DDoS poses to the delivery of web content,” demanding connectivity functions and businesses. .
With this information and a group commitment to correcting the DDoS downside, we’ll go a long way in making our networks, businesses, and subscribers more secure. “
Nokia has recently improved its Deep Field Defender resolve to help support rapidly advancing and evolving attacks. Resolution can reach petabytes and facilitates agile mitigation of volumetric DDoS attacks at the community edge.
“We take a unique approach by leveraging the combined power of high-performance IP networks and big data analytics to protect the network on all fronts against all volumetric, petabit-scale DDoS attacks without lifting the main, ”added Dr. Labovitz.
“This will allow network operators to take a big step forward in improving the overall security and availability of their networks and services for all of their customers. “
