Over the past few years, the digital shift has only made DDoS attacks more common. Given the low barriers to entry and the high potential for monetary gains, low-level and novice threat actors find it easier to launch DDoS attacks and use them as a smokescreen for other malicious activities. That is why we have invested in DDoS mitigation within our core network.

  • 76% of all attacks account for less than 1GB nationally.
  • A DDoS attack can cost a company between $20,000 and $40,000 hourly if impacted.
  • 80% of banking and e-commerce mobile connections are the most vulnerable to DDoS attacks. 
  • 20% of mid-size companies (defined as 50 employees or more) have reported being a victim of at least one DDoS attack. 
  • Most DDoS attacks last under 4 hours. 
  • 7% of DDoS attacks on businesses last longer than a week.
