The current approach of combining extreme bandwidth with protocol break, volumetric and heuristics (examples: machine learning & shared intelligence) checks are not sufficient to break the cycle. Volumes and rates of attacks keep growing and the costs to attack remain low and in some cases have been lowered by dark net tools.
