Almost a Fifth of Companies Have No DDoS Protection At All

DRJ-LogoA recent survey of 4,000 representatives of businesses in 25 countries found that 16 percent of respondents are not protected from DDoS attacks at all, and 39 percent admit that they're unclear on how best to combat DDoS attacks.

The 2016 Kaspersky Lab Corporate IT Security Risks survey also found that 49 percent of respondents rely on built-in hardware for protection from DDoS attacks, and 40 percent assume that their ISP will provide protection from DDoS attacks.

Twelve percent of respondents believe a small amount of downtime due to a DDoS attack would not cause a major issue for their company.
