What is a DDoS attack?
How would your business cope if your internet connection went down? Nowadays, many companies rely on their connection to the internet for access to files and services, not to mention communications. A DDoS attack works by making a machine or network unavailable to its users for a temporary or extended period of time. The attack involves flooding the target network with thousands of unique IP addresses all attempting to gain access at the same time - which causes huge disruption to normal operations.
What type of businesses are vulnerable to a DDoS attack?
The reality is, today all types of business are vulnerable to cyber attack. Traditionally high-profile web servers such as banks have been targeted, but the DDoS threat is now on the rise. Hackers are turning their attention to smaller businesses, who may be more vulnerable to their ransom demands. Attacks are generally anonymous and motives can vary from revenge to blackmail. The bottom line is - any business that depends on the internet for its day-to-day running should be protected.
