Has your organization been hit with a Direct Denial of Service (DDoS) attack in the past year? If so, you’re far from alone.
41% of global organizations reported suffering a DDoS attack, with 78% saying they’d been targeted twice or more, according to a recent survey.
DDoS attacks work by overloading an organization’s system or server, jamming it with so many communications requests that legitimate traffic can’t get through.
Adding to the headache: DDoS attacks equal customer complaints (which jump 36% after an attack) and downtime, taking an average 12 hours for organizations to recover — longer than the actual business day itself.
On the upside, the threat is now clear enough that organizations know they have to take action. 59% of those surveyed named DDoS a key concern.
