Distributed Denial-Of-Services Attacks Are Increasingly Used to Negatively Impact on Business in Asia

This IDC Perspective discusses some key trends observed in today’s landscape of distributed denial-of-services (DDos) attacks in Asia. We observe that DDoS attacks have evolved from purely volumetric to a combination of various DDoS attacks types, such as TCP exhaustion, application layer, and multivector attacks. DDoS attacks affect availability and productivity directly. It is critical to incorporate DDoS detection and mitigation capabilities into the organization's overall cyber-resilience architecture and plan. During a major DDoS event, communication is key. "Even if the organization is not the target, it is important to review the technical presence for evidence that it is participating in the attack and work through the protection, detection, and response mechanisms as if the organization is affected," says Cathy Huang, associate research director, IDC Asia/Pacific Services and Security.
