The threat of DDoS attacks in Brazil is constantly changing, and staying ahead of adversaries requires continuous monitoring and analysis to detect how they are modifying their behavior and targets. NETSCOUT monitors the global threat landscape and drills down into regional and country-level statistics to ensure that we stay informed of near-real-time trends by adversaries. The country-level analytics featured 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, including 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.
