Verisign’s Q1 2015 DDoS Trends Report reveals some interesting trends we should all be aware of. The report captures analysis and insights from Verisign including information derived from mitigations enacted on behalf of, and with cooperation with, customers of Verisign’s DDoS Protection Services. Key contributing analysts include the security research team at Verisign’s iDefense.
Some trends worth highlighting include:
