The DDoS threat landscape in United Arab Emirates (UAE) is continually evolving, requiring a constant effort to monitor and analyze how adversaries are changing their behavior and targets. NETSCOUT closely monitors the global threat landscape and delves into regional and country-level statistics to ensure we have coverage of 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 a range of 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.
