11:12 EDTMSFTNTT Communications launches Multi-Cloud Connect service
Earlier today, NTT Communications Corporation, the ICT solutions and international communications business within NTT (NTT), announced the launch of Multi-Cloud Connect - an optional feature on NTT Com's Arcstar Universal One that enables enterprises to access third party public cloud services through its high-performance MPLS network for enhanced security and improved connectivity. While enterprise adoption of cloud services continues to accelerate, most of these services are public cloud-based and accessed via the Internet. Inconsistent Internet performance is a major impediment to widespread cloud adoption, especially for MNCs with highly distributed end-users. Multi-Cloud Connect will address these performance issues by connecting the Arcstar Universal One MPLS network directly to public cloud service provider platforms, such as Microsoft (MSFT) Azure and Amazon (AMZN) Web Services, AWS.

06:50 EDTAKAMAkamai reports Q2 DDoS attack traffic up 7% vs. Q1
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q2 State of the Internet - Security Report. For the past three quarters, there has been a doubling in the number of DDoS attacks year over year. And while attackers favored less powerful but longer duration attacks this quarter, the number of dangerous mega attacks continues to increase. In Q2, there were 12 attacks peaking at more than 100 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, and five attacks peaking at more than 50 Million packets per second, or Mpps. Very few organizations have the capacity to withstand such attacks on their own. The largest DDoS attack of Q2 measured more than 240 gigabits per second, or Gbps, and persisted for more than 13 hours. Peak bandwidth is typically constrained to a one to two hour window. Q2 also saw one of the highest packet rate attacks ever recorded across the Prolexic Routed network, which peaked at 214 Mpps. That attack volume is capable of taking out tier 1 routers, such as those used by Internet service providers, or ISPs. DDoS attack activity set a new record in Q2 , increasing 132% compared to Q2 of 2014 and increasing 7% compared to Q1. Average peak attack bandwidth and volume increased slightly in Q2 compared to Q1, but remained significantly lower than the peak averages observed in Q2 of 2014. SYN and Simple Service Discovery Protocol, or SSDP, were the most common DDoS attack vectors this quarter - each accounting for approximately 16% of DDoS attack traffic. The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, Protocol continues to make them attractive for use as SSDP reflectors. Practically unseen a year ago, SSDP attacks have been one of the top attack vectors for the past three quarters. SYN floods have continued to be one of the most common vectors in all volumetric attacks, dating back to the first edition of the security reports in Q3 of 2011. Online gaming has remained the most targeted industry since Q2 of 2014, consistently being targeted in about 35% of DDoS attacks. China has remained the top source of non-spoofed attack traffic for the past two quarters, and has been among the top three source countries since the very first report was issued in Q3 of 2011.
