REVEALED: 3 dangerous myths about DDoS attacks

The findings of the latest annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report (WISR) by Arbor Networks® show that Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks continue to be popular with attackers, and are increasing in size, frequency and complexity.

They are a common way to disrupt businesses and online services. Traffic floods a system with requests, overloading the service and preventing legitimate traffic from getting through.

As well as frustrating users and customers, the cost of these attacks can be severe in terms of lost revenue and productivity due to infrastructure downtime, reputational damage, and the price of remediation.

In fact, Arbor estimates that the average cost to the victim of a DDoS attack is around $30,000 - $50,000 an hour.

Unfortunately, the perpetuation of certain myths means that many organisations still do not fully understand the dangers posed by DDoS attacks – or the risks to their business.
