What is a DDoS Attack?
Of all the cybersecurity threats today’s organizations face, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks are among the most complex and devastating. When you hear about a website being “brought down by hackers,” it generally means it has become a victim of a DDoS attack. Targeting websites and online services, this type of breach involves multiple compromised systems that work together to shut down services by flooding the bandwidth with false Internet traffic.
Falling victim to a DDoS attack can cost an average of more than $2.5 million in revenue for an organization, but the consequences reach far beyond the financial impact, including:
- Loss of reputation and brand degradation due to customers becoming casualties of data breaches
- Loss of business due to unavailability of the service
- Lost customers due to inability to meet service-level agreements (SLAs)
