As organizations have hardened their defenses, cybercriminals have responded with newer attack types targeting multiple applications and services. Some of these attacks target layers 3 and 4 of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model in new ways, resulting in network traffic spikes of up to 1.3 TB per second or more. Others are low-speed, low-intensity Layer 7-based offensives designed to fly under the radar and target one or more services gateways and application layers.
Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks remain one of the most effective methods used by cybercriminals to cause significant financial, operational, and reputational damage to businesses worldwide.
