A total of 23,487,185 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) weapons are currently in the wild, ready to be exploited by cyber attackers according to A10 Networks’ latest State of DDoS Weapons Report.

What is a botnet? And why they aren't going away anytime soon

What is a botnet? And why they aren't going away anytime soon

Controlling thousands or even millions of devices gives cyber attackers the upper hand to deliver malware or conduct a DDoS attack.

How proactive bot defense mitigates automated massive DDoS attacks

Early this year, malware compromised thousands of routers made by the Latvian company MikroTik, attacking a vulnerability made public in April 2018 via CIA hacking tools revealed by Wikileaks. More than 7,500 of the routers are reportedly being spied on by attackers forwarding network traffic data to remote servers. 

Multifunctional bots becoming more widespread

There is a growing global demand for multifunctional malware that is not designed for specific purposes but is flexible enough to perform almost any task.

App protection amid evolving app landscape, automated attacks

WAFs remain the top means for securing applications, along with application scanning and penetration testing. Although they are not designed for bot detection and their policy-based approaches cannot adapt or scale to defend against large-scale bot attacks, it is still a preventive security control that significantly reduces the risk of web vulnerability exploitation.

Botnet trends demonstrate the creativity of cyber criminals

Botnets continue to impact millions of computers globally, infecting them with old and new forms of malware, according to the 23rd volume of Microsoft’s Security Intelligence Report (SIR).

Holistic automation keeps chaos, bots at bay

The app-driven, cloud-enabled business is the norm in the always-on, always-connected digital economy.

Today, thanks to multi-cloud deployments, billions of new apps hold substantial confidential company and customer data. These cloud-based apps boost business agility but also introduce complex challenges and new risks, especially with automated tools and availability of hacking expertise for hire.
