DDoS Attacks Cost £100,000 per Hour


New report highlights the need to be prepared for denial of service events. 

A recent study reveals a growing threat of DDoS attack and the losses associated with DDoS service interruptions. “The March 2015 Neustar DDoS Attacks and Protection Report” focuses on the UK and Europe and summarizes the responses from enterprise businesses that were interviewed regarding DDoS experiences and strategies. According to the report, nearly 40% of the companies would lose £100,000 (EUR140,000) of revenue per hour if their sites were subjected to a DDoS attack. Fifty percent of the companies said DDoS is a bigger risk this year than last year, and one in three previous attacks lasted one to two days.

You can download the report from the Neustar website. You'll need to provide some basic contact information to obtain the full report.
