Escalating malware and DDoS Threat Vectors

Enterprises and service providers have faced unprecedented challenges in the last year with the global pandemic and the wide-scale shift to work-from-home requirements, an increasing level of sophisticated cyber-attacks, the rollout of 5G networks, and massive adoption of IoT. Accelerated digital transformation and dependency on digital services have become a catalyst for greater focus and spending on application and network security.

A10 Networks has seen a dramatic increase in customer needs as they navigate this rapidly changing landscape. The acceleration of the use of IoT devices, gaming and streaming services; faster adoption of software, cloud and XaaS technologies to help organizations manage remote work and school; and 5G had become a reality, enabling more and higher-capacity connections from millions of devices all requiring protection of this expanded attack surface from highly complex cyber-attacks.

Service providers and many other organizations are aggressively expanding and securing infrastructure to deal with the demands and safeguard against threats to ensure reliable service and business-critical subscriber growth. Examples of sophisticated attacks, such as the high-profile SolarWinds hack affecting many businesses and government organizations, and the resurgent growth of DDoS attacks, illustrate how digital services are frequent targets.

Fortifying the security posture has never been more critical to avoid loss of customers and revenue. As noted in A10’s most recent State of DDoS Weapons report, the size of the threat is daunting for organizations. The company tracked 12.5 million DDoS weapons in just the last half of 2020, with an approximately 12 per cent increase in each reporting period (2018-2020).

As a global phenomenon, A10 has seen the largest communications service providers (CSPs) expand their services, taking advantage of new opportunities with government and enterprises, along with regional providers addressing the critical need for high-speed broadband to rural communities.

Securing Customers’ Infrastructures Against Emerging Security Threats

New customer-oriented product solutions are emerging and are helping to drive recent customer wins:

  • A10’s DDoS protection solution mitigates the threat of in-line attacks for a fast-growing gaming customer, thereby allowing its gaming users to access the services reliably.
  • A European telecom provider builds a DDoS cloud scrubbing centre with A10’s DDoS protection solution to offer its enterprise customers mitigation services.
  • A service provider customer was expanding its 5G rollout. Despite COVID restrictions, A10 responded quickly and delivered a virtualized solution to address growing internet traffic.

These positive customer outcomes result from the company’s focus on driving innovation to address rapidly emerging cybersecurity threats and provide flexible consumption models that drive software-centric and recurring revenue growth.
