The 8th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report from Arbor offers a rare view into the most critical security challenges facing today’s network operators. Among the key findings this year, advanced persistent threats (APTs) are top of mind for both service providers and enterprises; distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have plateaued in size but become more complex; data center and cloud services are especially attractive targets; and mobile operators continue to be reactive in terms of network visibility. The report also covers the impact of BYOD as well as infrastructure issues such as VoIP and IPv6.
