Cyber Threats & Trends Report: First Half 2020

by Neustar

Sep 23, 2020

With the advent of the pandemic and the associated lockdowns, companies have moved online and customers have too. Online purchases have grown astronomically and may be here to stay. To make matters more complex, internet traffic is way up, and attacks have followed suit.

This new report shows that there have been over 2.5 times as many attacks in the first half of 2020 as the same period in 2019. If your website does not perform, customers won't think twice about switching to another site. If a DDoS attack is making your site run slowly, you may lose business that you won't get back.

In this report you will learn about:
• Built-in connection protocols that seem "tailor-made" for exploitation in DDoS attacks
• New amplification vectors, including one around recursive DNS
• The explosion of IoT devices that fuel the growth of botnets

Download this report to understand the latest trends in DDoS attacks and what you need to anticipate in order to protect your organization.
