Microsoft Affirms the Mitigation of The Largest DDoS Attacks Ever Recorded

The greatest announcement of the decade came from Microsoft. They unveiled that they were able to mitigate 2.4 terabits per second DDoS attacks. The intrusion was targeted at their customer using the companies Azure cloud computing services. The tech experts successfully took care of the distributed denial-of-service attacks ever recorded. 

The details were published by the senior program manager at Azure Network on how the attack took place at the end of August. The attack included approximately 70,000 sources from the Asia-Pacific regions like China, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam. The name of the USA was also associated in some capacity with this attack.

A DDoS attack tries to immerse a website or service with traffic to a level so high it simply cannot manage, efficiently limiting the target to go offline. They’re carried out by a network consisting of machines that have been infected with malware, consequently allowing an attacker to control it remotely.

Despite the unbelievable attack, Microsoft confirmed it can’t penetrate its foundation thanks to its disseminated mitigation potential, which can massively scale to assimilate the highest volume of DDoS threats. The manager at Azure confirmed that the protection platform of the company is capable of taking on tens of terabits of DDoS strikes without hitting customers.

Before this massive DDoS attack, a 1 Tbps outbreak occurred last year during Q3 2020. This year it is reported to be a 25% increase in the number of attacks compared to Q4 2020, Microsoft cloud platform Azure didn’t experience a DDoS attack exceeding 625 Mbps in the first half of 2021.

Limiting the second-largest DDoS attack ever recorded is not extremely bad on a selling point for potential Microsoft clients. But the award of the largest attack prevented on record belongs to Google, which mitigated a 2.54 Tbps hit in 2017.
