Radware, a leading provider of cybersecurity and application delivery solutions, has announced results from its Q2 2021 DDoS Attack Report.
The report revealed that second quarter blocked DDoS attack volumes were up more than 40% compared to the same period in 2020. The report provides an overview of DDoS attack trends by industry, as well as across applications and attack types.
The report revealed during the first half of 2021, a company located in the Americas or Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) had to repel, on average, twice as much volume compared to a company located in Asia-Pacific (APAC).
The Americas and EMEA accounted for about 80% of the blocked attack volume during that same period.
“While large ransomware attacks are capturing headlines, there are other cyberthreats that companies need to pay attention to,” said Pascal Geenens, Director of Threat Intelligence for Radware.
“From an increase in DDoS extortion campaigns and DDoS hit-and-run assaults, to a hacktivist group targeting financial organizations in the Middle East, the second quarter saw a concerning amount of cyber activity compared to the activity levels we saw during the same quarter last year. The results of this report should serve as a strong reminder to enterprises that no company is immune from being a target.”Click below to share this article
