NSFOCUS, a global provider of intelligent hybrid DDoS defences, has announced its launch in Australia. The China-based company believes it is uniquely placed to defend Australia against cyber attacks from China and the rest of the world.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the hottest growth areas with major benefits for big data and analytics. But many of these devices are vulnerable and have been harnessed for some of the largest DDoS attacks in history. Should Australia legislate for security as, say, Europe has recently done?
A distributed denial of service attack on Dynamic Network Services, otherwise known as Dyn, in October 2016, led to the company losing a considerable amount of business, according to data from the security services company BitSight.
