Gemalto reports 2.6bn records breached in 2017

Over two billion records were stolen lost or exposed in 2017, according to Gemalto’s Breach Level Index.

The Index, a global database of breaches and their severity, showed 2.6 billion records were compromised in 2017, the first time that the total has passed two billion. Identity theft comprised the majority of records lost.

The figures marked an 88% increase in the number of records breached from 2016 figures, although the number of incidents fell by 11%.

“The manipulation of data or data integrity attacks pose an arguably more unknown threat for organizations to combat than simple data theft, as it can allow hackers to alter anything from sales numbers to intellectual property. By nature, data integrity breaches are often difficult to identify and in many cases, where this type of attack has occurred, we have yet to see the real impact,” said Jason Hart, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Data Protection at Gemalto.

Neustar Announces NetProtect: A Direct Connect Distributed Denial of Service Defense Solution

Neustar Inc, a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced the release of Neustar NetProtect™, a direct connect Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense solution that is currently available in 61 data centers located across ten countries. In complement to Neustar SiteProtect NG®, a DDoS mitigation solution that protects against web application attacks, the NetProtect network is strategically situated directly inside data centers in order to address and mitigate or entirely avoid the concerns of latency, complexity and other anomalies which are commonly associated with legacy Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel systems.

“DDoS defense technology is constantly improving and as a result Neustar is focused on creating solutions that provide our clients with a secure infrastructure built on a foundation of unmatched stability, resiliency and performance,” said Barrett Lyon, General Manager, DDoS Defense at Neustar. “I am very bullish about the DDoS evolution and, without a doubt, connecting directly to defense networks rather than routing through tunnels will become the norm. This will allow for greater security and less intrusive protection in order to mitigate attacks consistently and effectively, without introducing unnecessary volatility.”
