While 2019 saw the largest network and application layer attacks ever recorded, attacks were overall smaller, shorter, and more persistent.
In this report, security experts from Imperva Research Labs analyze DDoS attack sizes, duration, and persistence as well as:
- The most attacked industry segments, like the computing and Internet sectors
- What regions topped the list for the most DDoS attacks, including how East Asia was the biggest target for network layer assaults
- Why new attack trends may be indicative of attempts to outsmart mitigation services and how they’re no match for Imperva’s near-zero time to mitigation
