DDoS attacks are on the rise. That statement by itself might not be that interesting because in this climate of "cyber insecurity", it probably wouldn’t surprise anyone that the number of attacks is increasing. However, what is more interesting, and even more troubling for networks, is that the size of these attacks is on the rise, with some attacks reported at over 400 Gbps. And yet the same solutions that were used for much smaller attacks are being used in attempt to detect and mitigate these security threats.
