NETSCOUT launches ML-Based Adaptive DDoS Protection

NETSCOUT Systems, Inc. has unveiled the latest version of Arbor Edge Defense (AED), its cybersecurity solution that offers protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

The Rise of Botnet and DDoS Attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have become an ongoing threat for organisations. Using a variety of techniques, a wide range of threat actors from lone hackers, criminal gangs and hacktivists to nation-states are using DDoS attacks to disrupt or disable the performance of target systems.

It’s also worth noting that this attack occurred over HTTPS. HTTPS DDoS attacks require more computational resources due to the higher cost of establishing a secure TLS encrypted connection.

The DDoS attacks trends leaders need to know

DDoS activity subsided in the second half of 2021, confirming NETSCOUT’s previous predictions. Prior to the development of the Omicron virus, countries began to emerge from lockdown restrictions, and people returned to in-person education, work, and social gatherings. In turn, DDoS activity dropped by 3% between July AND December 2021, compared to the first half of the year.
