As 2022 draws to a close, Ramil Khantimirov, CEO and co-founder StormWall, shared his views on the global trends affecting DDoS attacks, the motivations of hackers today and the main threats relating to DDoS attacks.
DDoS attacks are becoming more frequent and powerful. To understand the threat orgnaizations may be facing in the near future, StormWall experts analyzed the past frequency of attacks on the company's clients. The research concluded that we may be looking at a 130% increase in the number of DDoS attacks globally.
A new report has warned that as more cybercriminals learn the potential of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, the popularity of such tactics are growing exponentially.
Experts believe that hackers employ both conventional public tools, originally designed for testing purposes, and specially developed, new utilities that they distribute as open source software. The newly developed tools are updated weekly and most of the updates increase their effectiveness. Since the software is free, it only requires computing resources to operate, which, in most cases, the attackers already have access to.
For metaverses, protectability will be critical because in large digital spaces the economy of scale is very noticeable. But for operators of modern gaming sites and social media, the trade-off between benefits and costs is also important, so their security must be given due attention.
StormWall expects a 130% increase in DDoS worldwide. The new wave of DDoS is forecasted to hit in September 2022 and will be targeted at multiple sectors, although businesses will be affected the most.
Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on schools and higher institutions are reaching their all-time high, as DDoS tools become cheaper and more accessible than ever. What does it mean for online education?
At the start of school year in September this year in many cities around the world, educational institutions appeared to have experienced an increase in DDoS attacks that was around 118% greater than that in 2020.
Online retail is traditionally one of the most attacked industries, and during the preparation for school, the number of attacks on online stores increases significantly. With the help of cyberattacks, online retailers are trying to harm their competitors and cripple their websites.
Some of the most powerful DDoS attacks ever detected have been revealed by cybersecurity company StormWall. This specific botnet, which enabled DDoS attacks of up to 2TB/s, sets a new record over the entire life of the internet as we know it so far.
Research made by Boston Consulting Group suggests that companies in the financial market are 300 times more likely to be targeted by DDoS than companies operating in other industries. DDoS then is a real and pressing threat for banks. But why are DDoS attacks in this industry that much more prevalent?
The developer of information security solutions StormWall releases the StormWall Sensor Appliance, which provides effective protection of business from DDoS attacks of any level. The solution will be available to all StormWall customers who use the Network Protection service from September 1, 2021.
The migration to remote-working has resulted in a surge in online threats. What are the most effective protection measures?
