NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, a market leader in cybersecurity, service assurance and business analytics, has announced that it is working with NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) to conduct research and resilience testing to detect and mitigate cyberattacks by leveraging the resources of NETSCOUT’s ATLAS Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT).
NTT Com is taking active measures to ensure its network can support increased traffic and security needs while providing a more resilient network for the future.
Volumetric DDoS attacks overwhelm internal network capacity to consume bandwidth so that genuine users cannot gain access to a network, application or service.
“We’ve detected a huge uptick in volumetric DDoS cyberattacks globally, since the release of the Mirai source code, including a 1.7 Tbps reflection/amplification attack in recent years,” said Hardik Modi, Associate Vice President of Engineering, Threat and Mitigation Products, NETSCOUT.
NETSCOUT ASERT will collaborate with NTT Com’s technical team to implement this initiative in September 2021 and continue through December 2021. The focus will be to discover and mitigate large DDoS attacks, implement defence measures for application attacks, analyse malware attacks in honeypots, leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI) to predict cyberattacks and identify new attacks before becoming an issue.Click below to share this article
