STERLING, Va. -- April 26, 2016; Neustar, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today released the findings from its third global DDoS Attacks and Protection Report titled The Threatscape Widens: DDoS Aggression and the Evolution of IoT Risks. The April 2016 report follows a survey of over 1,000 IT professionals across six continents, and reveals that few organizations globally are being spared DDoS attacks. With the bombardment fairly constant throughout 2015, it is no longer a matter of if or when attacks might happen, but how often and how long the attack will last. Faced with this ongoing onslaught, the report demonstrates that increasingly DDoS-defense savvy organizations are now arming themselves accordingly.
The research results show that although revenue loss caused by a DDoS related outage is usually the main concern, 57% of all breaches involved some sort of theft including intellectual property and customer data as well as financial information. More troubling, following the initial breach, 45% of organizations reported the installation of a virus or malware - a sign that attackers are interested in causing ongoing harm.
The research highlights that although DDoS attack tactics continue to evolve from single large attacks intended to take a website offline to the multi-vector attacks we are seeing today, organizations are fighting back. The good news is 76% of companies are investing more in DDoS protection than in 2014 and 47% of the attacked organizations are participating in security consortiums to share information on threats and counter measures.
With the emergence of new data sources such as social media, mobile applications, and sensor-equipped “Internet of Things” networks, enterprises applications today are adopting disruptive technologies to manage the higher volume of information; specially when the data itself arrives at much faster rates and is more complex and dynamic than existing transactional sources.
The scalable storage, powerful data processing and embedded analytics engines allows you to easily access, enrich and analyze variety and volume of big data to deliver real-time insights into areas such as operational performance, customer satisfaction, and competitor behavior.

The new IT-security company Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity will be at this year's CeBIT to present an innovative solution that is the first to meet the challenges associated with higher bandwidths: the UTM+ firewall series with integrated next-generation engine. Like all trade fair innovations from Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, the UTM+ firewalls take a proactive approach to security.
If one thing is clear, big data has a bright future ahead of it. More businesses and organizations than ever before have bought into the idea of collecting vast amounts of data, analyzing it, storing it, and eventually using it to improve operations, make accurate forecasts, and even create new products and services. With such tremendous potential, many investors have seen big data as a clear target for growth. Pinpointing just how to invest in it, however, has been a challenge. One could notice a promising startup and ride it out as the business grew or failed, depending on what they offered. A more likely scenario that investors are paying more attention to is that of data centers. In many ways, data centers are the hub from which all big data analytics is done, and as big data continues to grow, so will the data centers that feed it.
