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.
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.
