The Business Need for DDoS Protection

The Business Need for DDoS Protection

A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is targeted at e-commerce or websites with a view to overwhelming network bandwidth or server resources, thus denying access to your site from legitimate customers.  As attacks increase in size and sophistication, an increasing number of businesses need to defend against the possibility of a DDoS attack.  Any business with a strong e-commerce presence can make a simple cost:benefit analysis of the revenue lost as a result of downtime,  whilst under attack.  However, this analysis should also include loss of reputation and any loss of customers who will never return, having found a competitor to do business with.

For organisations in controversial or targeted areas such as global politics, anti-piracy or animal testing, DDoS and other attacks are a constant presence and a successful attack can lead to negative headlines and loss of reputation.

As attacks increase in size and sophistication, an increasing number of businesses need to defend against the possibility of a DDoS attack.
