The company reported an attack last November against a customer in Asia, reaching 3.47 terabits per second from 10,000 sources in 10 different countries around the world.

"We believe this is the largest reported attack in history," stated Alethea Toh, product manager at Azure Networking, comparing this attack to last October 2021's 2.4 terabits per second attack, both of which were successfully mitigated.
