Corero Full Year 2018 Key DDoS Attack Trends Report

The number of attacks over 10Gbps have doubled, while the duration of attacks continues to decrease


The Internet-connected world continues to grow more complex, due to faster connections, the widespread adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and the use of cloud services. At the same time, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) threats have become more sophisticated and frequent. Whilst unlawful in many countries, DDoS-for-hire services are commonplace, inexpensive, and easy to use.

Key Highlights

  • Low volume, sub-saturating attacks continue to dominate (98% are less than 10Gbps)
  • The average number of attacks per customer is up 16% year-over-year
  • Attacks over 10Gbps have doubled in the past year
  • The average attack is becoming even shorter, with 81% now lasting less than 10 minutes
  • 1 in 5 victims suffer a repeat attack within the first 24 hours
