It’s believed that 20% of UK businesses don’t have protection against DDoS attacks in place, despite 1 in 5 companies experiencing an attack of this kind in the last 12 months.
The scale of Distributed Denial of Service attacks are also seeing a drastic rise. The average attack has seen a growth of 43% compared to 2012’s figures. Almost half of all these types of attacks are now over 1GB and 30% of these are recorded at a staggering 2-10Gbs.
Overall the scale, complexity and frequency of DDoS attacks are increasing at a significant rate month on month.
