DDoS threat protection a priority for more than half of companies

Arbor Networks : 06 August, 2013  (Technical Article)
Annual enterprise threat landscape report examines company attitudes to threats involving distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks
DDoS threat protection a priority for more than half of companies

Arbor Networks has released the findings of its first annual enterprise threat landscape report.

Focused on the key cyber and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) threats facing enterprise organisations, the report examines the trends in rising attacks against these businesses and the power of DDoS to significantly interrupt an organisation’s presence and services, causing significant reputational and financial damage.

Key findings from the report include:

* 63% of enterprise respondents see the DDoS threat to Internet service availability as a top priority
* 50% experienced DDoS attacks against their infrastructure last year
* 25% encountered DDoS attacks against customer and partner-facing services last year
* 12.5% witnessed a malicious insider or APT on their internal network last year
* 63% allow personal devices on their networks, but 25% of those do not monitor these devices
* 50% make DDoS protection part of their business risk management process for Internet service availability
* 35% of data centre operators saw their firewalls/IPS impacted by DDoS in 2012
* 2.12Gbps: the average size of a DDoS attack tracked by the ATLAS system in 1H 2013, up 43% from 2012

In light of recent high-profile assaults such as operation Ababil against a number of US financial institutions and the Spamhaus attack earlier this year, the largest DDoS attack to date at over 300Gbps, these threats are requiring ever-increasing attention from the C-suite.
