2506 DDoS attacks occur per day worldwide, with a peak attack of 54.66 Gbps in the past 24 hours, and 1137 active botnets are currently in detection.
Arbor Networks’ new threat hub was launched today, the ATLAS Threat Portal.
The portal combines Arbor’s threat intelligence and anaylsis, gathered through collaboration with 270 service provider customers, with industry-wide news and social media content.
Dan Holden, Arbor Networks Director of Security Research, said: "This portal allows us to share global threat information with the community at-large, to feature our team of expert analysts, highlight their research and integrate the latest news and social activity that is going on across the industry."
The ATLAS Portal is available for public use and combines more than 45Tbps of peak traffic data to generate a globally scoped view into the threat landscape.
This massive data set puts Arbor into a solid position to study malware, botnets and DDoS attacks that threaten network infrastructure and services.
