I’ve been performing my usual routing checks on one of our Managed Barracuda Web Application Firewalls and I can confirm the word on the street, Cyber Attacks are on the rise.

Take a look below at the steady rise in attacks on Web Applications just in the past month. There’s been attempts of Distributed Denial of Service, Session Tampering, SQL Injection and more. Criminals are trying everything to get at this precious company data from anything they can see that’s web facing. Some examples include Outlook Web Access, CRM and ecommerce websites.

Thankfully this customer has a Web Application Firewall behind their corporate firewall and it’s blocked all of the attempts (847k attempted attacks in Feb).
