Fueled by the ease with which they can be launched, DDoS attacks are continuing to increase and are utilized in attacks by organizations ranging from sophisticated cyber crime networks to more ideological hacktivist groups. In some cases, the express purpose of a DDoS attack is to prevent services from operating, and in other cases, the attacks are intended as a diversion while a separate attack exfiltrates data. With the wide range of potential attack drivers, it is difficult for organizations and service providers to plan for an attack. According to Arbor Networks' 2013 Enterprise Threat Landscape Report, 50 percent of enterprises surveyed experience a DDoS attack on their infrastructure.
"Although distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks aren't new, they are more prevalent today than ever before," said Vikram Phatak, CEO, NSS Labs. "Many vendors have entered the DDoS prevention market in recent years and their solutions should be evaluated carefully. We look forward to testing these solutions and providing empirical data on their effectiveness to our enterprise clients."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
