Automation is the most effective way to tackle potentially thousands of cyber attacks on web applications over several days, a study has confirmed.
Web applications in retail have to be able to deal with up to 46,000 attack requests per incident in SQL injection (SQLi) attacks, for example, according to the latest web application attack report from Imperva.
The average was 749 individual attack requests per attack incident and the average duration per incident was 22 minutes, with the longest attack recorded at just over 9.5 hours.
“These attacks are generated using high levels of automation, which means defence systems should also be highly automated,” said Tal Be’ery, web research team leader at Imperva.
