Radware Security Report: Q2 2021 Blocked DDoS Attack Volumes Up More Than 40% Year Over Year
MAHWAH, N.J., July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions, today 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.
“While large ransomware attacks are capturing headlines, there are other cyber threats 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.”
Tech Topped Most Attacked Industries
Aggressive Burst Attacks Waged Against Tech and Finance Companies
Ransom Denial-of-Service Campaigns Resurge
Malicious Scanners Exploit Vulnerabilities
“Organizations are being challenged by well organized threat actors,” Geenens said. “The window between the disclosing and weaponizing of new vulnerabilities is getting very slim. In some cases, we observed less than 24 hours between a manufacturer publishing a patch and malicious activity trying to exploit the vulnerability.”
Radware’s full Q2 DDoS Attack Report can be found here along with charts and graphics. The data for the report is based on a sample set of Radware devices deployed in Radware’s cloud scrubbing centers and on-premise managed devices in Radware hybrid and peak protection services.
