2015 DDoS Attack Trends and 2016 Outlook

2015 DDoS Attack Trends and 2016 Outlook

The number of DDoS attacks increased more than 200% compared to last year and the amount of DDoS attack traffic rose as well. The use of DNS (Domain Name System) and NTP (Network Time Protocol) Amplification mostly used between 2013 and 2014 was decreased but the frequency of SSDP (Simple Service Discovery Protocol) Amplification multiplied.

In 2014, DDoS attacks mainly targeted gaming companies but in 2015, the scope widened to threaten public institutions and financial companies as well.

This report analyzes DDoS attack trends and types collected by the CDNetworks Security Service Team in the course of providing DDoS defense services to customers and uses the analysis to predict and prepare for DDoS trends in 2016.
