DDoS attacks have become the most common and affordable cyber weapon (the cost of launching an efficient DDoS attack may start from $50 per day). Thus, a DDoS attack is a simple way to cause damage that can have long-term consequences. During an attack, the targeted websites or services become unavailable. As a result, the business loses customers and reputation. Government institutions, media websites, online stores, commercial and non-profit organizations, and even ISPs are all potential targets of the same threat. Average losses from DDoS attacks are estimated worldwide at 50 thousand dollars for small organizations and almost 500 thousand dollars for large enterprises.
Most companies tend to underestimate DDoS attacks and the threats they pose. Every year the attacks become more dangerous and sophisticated; their power is continuously growing. Fighting DDoS attacks is an extremely challenging task. Some companies try to organize the protection of their resources internally, while others use professional Anti-DDoS solutions and find themselves in a more advantageous situation.
THE MAIN ADVANTAGES OF USING PROFESSIONAL SOLUTIONS
