Consider The Cost Of A DDoS Attack On Your Business
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack overwhelms its target with a flood of traffic from malware-infected computers and IoT devices. It maxes out the capacity of the target and blocks normal traffic to the host.
The lost revenue and tarnished business reputation from a DDoS attack on your business can escalate quickly. In fact, the average small to medium-sized business spends $120,000 per attack. A DDoS attack for an enterprise business could cost upwards of $2 million
Investing in an offline or back-up system while online services are unavailable is also a very costly and decreases productivity. An attack can also damage customer and client trust and jeopardize future business opportunities.
There are different types of DDoS attacks that target varying components of a network connection. These can be as simple as a network flood to an application layer attack which can be extremely sophisticated and time consuming to mitigate without the right solution. Multiple attack vectors can also be used which further complicates the mitigation.
Not all DDoS attack solutions or mitigation technics are the same. There are many factors that need to be considered to ensure you are truly protected. What applications you are running, were are your servers located, your networking infrastructure, and firewall locations and setups to name a few.
