China Watch Blog reports that Prolexic Technologies, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, has announced that data collected during Q411 global attacks against its clients indicates a significant rise in packet-per-second (PPS) volume.
“Based on fourth quarter statistics, Prolexic predicts that 2012 will feature DDoS attacks that will be shorter in duration, but much more devastating in terms of packet-per-second volume,” said Paul Sop, chief technology officer at Prolexic. “Think of it this way. In the past, attackers had a rifle. In 2012, they have a machine gun with a laser site.” Prolexic predicted this increase in PPS volume in its previous attack report and noted that attackers were changing their strategy.
