Radware has released its 2021-2022 Global Threat Analysis Report. The comprehensive analysis shows that companies are failing to adapt their cyber attack mitigation strategies to accommodate mid and small size attacks or 'micro flood' attacks and application layer DDoS attacks.

Findings in the report indicate that malicious actors are becoming smarter and operating at scale, making mitigation harder for businesses. This is a warning to security leaders that threat actors are adapting their techniques and can keep pace with cloud and application deployments.

Key findings in the report include:

“The statistics tell a story about bad actors. They are getting smarter, more organized, and more targeted in pursuing their objectives - whether that be for money, fame, or a political cause,” said Pascal Geenens, director of threat intelligence for Radware. “In addition, cybercriminals are shifting their attack patterns - from leveraging larger attack vectors to combining multiple vectors in more complex-to-mitigate campaigns. Ransomware operators and their affiliates, which now include DDoS-for-hire actors, are working with a whole new level of professionalism and discipline - something that we have not seen before.”
