Cybersecurity is recognized as one of the fastest-growing technology markets globally. According to Gartner, enterprise spending on cloud security solutions is predicted to increase from $636M in 2020 to $1.63B in 2023, attaining a 26.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).
“Add another access point!” This is the typical answer when a technician is trying to get internet from one end of an apartment to the other. With a solution approach, you should know where there are dead spots and where users aren’t getting the best coverage. By having this knowledge, you can add access points where the user will have the best experience. But, what about the performance?
Historically, if your company wanted to implement DDoS mitigation tactics, you were left justifying a quarter-million-dollar expenditure just to scratch the surface of network protection.
Approaching a multi-dwelling unit (MDU) property owner (or manager) to update their network infrastructure can be a challenge for service providers. This scenario can be especially difficult when the MDU is not receiving any complaints from tenants and their occupancy rate is 100% at any given time. The old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” applies here. The service provider needs to motivate change. But how?
The world continues to ramp up its technological footprint, which in turn creates more ways to access the Internet of Things (IoT) from home and work. More technology inevitably leads to more technological threats looking to take advantage of holes in network infrastructure. “Globally, there was a 776% growth in attacks between 100 Gbps and 400 Gbps Y/Y from 2018 to 2019, and the total number of DDoS attacks will double from 7.9 million in 2018 to 15.4 million by 2023,” according to Cisco’s Annual Internet Report (2018-2023). For a bad actor with a vengeful motive, a DDoS attack can be very attractive because it is very inexpensive.
