Cybersecurity agencies worldwide are detecting an increasing threat from a new type of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack called Carpet Bombing.
It accounts for 44 per cent of the DDoS attacks globally in 2021 as reported by Neustar Security Services in their February 2022 report.
Carpet bombing attacks a company’s multiple public IP addresses with smaller network traffic as compared to traditional volumetric attacks thus making it difficult to be detected.
The sum of the small attack-based network traffic can be equivalent to a volumetric attack on a single IP address.
These can easily congest the internet-facing applications and network connectivity of the targeted company.
When a company faces such DDoS attack, the customer-facing digital services such as websites, e-commerce shops, web applications or mobile applications hosted, will be disrupted, or significantly slowed down in response, impacting customer experience and the company’s business operations relying on these digital channels.
Businesses in Brunei can now take steps to protect their digital services from such network DDoS attacks. UNN offers a fully managed & automated cybersecurity service that will help to protect the company’s digital lifeline.
