Arbor, Google Ideas map DDoS attacks
Dubai, November 6, 2013
Arbor Networks, a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, has collaborated with Google Ideas to create a data visualisation of global distributed denial service (DDoS) attacks.
Google Ideas is ‘think/do’ tank that explores how technology can enable people to confront threats in the face of conflict, instability or repression. It used anonymous data from Arbor Networks’ Atlas global threat monitoring system to build the data visualisation that allows users to explore historical trends in DDoS attacks, and make the connection to related news events on any given day. The data is updated daily, and historical data can be viewed for all countries.
A ‘Digital Attack Map’ was introduced at the ‘Conflict in a Connected World’ summit, hosted by Google Ideas recently.
It brought together experts, technologists and people with relevant experience from across a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds to address how technology can play a role in exploring trends, exposing threats and empowering people in conflict.
“The people at Google Ideas have really done an amazing job bringing Arbor’s global DDoS attack data to life,” said Arbor Networks president Colin Doherty.
“The goal of this collaboration was to show what a global threat DDoS is and how it can be used to suppress speech and threaten open access to information.” - TradeArabia News Service
