Protecting the core of your digital brand against DDoS attacks
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing. These continued attempts to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic are increasing in size and frequency because they are easy and cheap for cybercriminals to carry out.
As smart devices continue to saturate the market, so do the number of devices used by cybercriminals. The Internet of Things has created a vast amount of easily hackable devices including smart TVs, thermostats, video cameras, microwaves, refrigerators, and many more—which can be used as botnets to cause a DDoS attacks.
The impact of these attacks could include:
- system outages causing the cessation of internal business processes
- loss of revenue from downed Internet sites
- compromised user/customer credentials resulting in damaged reputation
- and significant financial impact, as cybercriminals are using DDoS attacks to extort money from brand owners (mostly in the form of bitcoin ransom)
