NETSCOUT, one of the leading cybersecurity and network diagnostics firms, recently revealed the findings of its bi-annual Threat Intelligence Report. The report provided insight and analysis into the unprecedented nature of Distributed-Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks in 2020. Darren Anstee, Chief Technology Officer for Security at NETSCOUT, shares insights from the report.
We discuss who the suspected attackers are and how the attacks have differed over the last year. I learn how attackers focused on COVID-era lifelines such as healthcare, e-commerce, finance, and educational services with complex, high-throughput attacks designed to overwhelm and quickly take them down.
We talk about what business leaders need to be aware of when it comes to a DDoS attack and its impact. Darren also shares how NETSOUT helps businesses with the challenges presented by DDoS attacks.
