Technologies and Resources Against DDoS Attacks


CityLife has published an article this month on how collaboration and information sharing among organizations and professionals are critical for DDoS defense. It refers to our Automated IoT Defence Ecosystem (AIDE) platform for organizations to collaborate and share threat intelligence “…helping to strengthen the overall security posture of the global digital ecosystem.”


DDoS attack stands for Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack. It is a cybercrime in which the attacker floods a server with internet traffic to prevent users from accessing connected online services and sites. This type of attack continued to increase in complexity and in volume in 2022. 


The story also tackles other very important lines of defense, like employees’ roles in identifying and reporting potential threats, the need for organizations to have a comprehensive incident response plan, and the use of advanced DDoS defense technologies that leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms.


GCA’s AIDE  platform has been monitoring IoT threats across the globe for four years. Since it began collecting data AIDE, through its sensors distributed across the globe, has recorded an average of 800,000 IoT attacks per day and tracked more than 5.3B attacks in total.


Today’s attacks can involve millions of compromised devices, a massive scale that makes it difficult for traditional security measures, such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems, to effectively mitigate threats.  


Tracking the trends of malicious activity can provide important information in the fight against this criminal behavior, and working with network operators to identify and prevent attacks from getting started are at the heart of GCA’s work in this space.
