To stay ahead of the constantly evolving DDoS threat landscape in Iran, it is necessary to maintain a constant approach to monitoring and analysis to understand how adversaries are altering their behavior and targets. NETSCOUT actively monitors the global threat landscape and analyzes regional and country-level statistics to track near-real-time trends by adversaries. The country-level analytics presented on this page are automatically generated using our global threat analysis and collection platform, ATLAS, and provide various benchmarks for the specified time period, such as the top vectors used in DDoS attacks, top targeted industries, largest attack by bandwidth and throughput, most vectors used in an attack, and total attack frequency.
