Among the security content on Akamai's new State of the Internet website is a very cool map where you can view DDoS attack activity worldwide in near real-time, including global sources, types, volume and targets.
The most recent 5000 DDoS attacks blocked by Akamai appear on the map. Each DDoS attack source can command hundreds or thousands of DDoS bots. Viewers can customize their view by zooming in or out. There's also a section that ranks bot activity by country.
Security content on the site focuses on:
- Network and DNS security
- Web application security
- DDoS protection and DDoS mitigation
- Threat advisories and attack trends
It pairs well with the security section on Akamai's main website. Check in on both sites daily for the full security picture around the world.
