With the growth of cyber-threats nowadays through phishing, patch exploitation, trojans and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) and how they are targeting several businesses, yet new figures show that more than half of companies don’t have an anti-DDoS protection set up.
According to new survey conducted by security firm Kaspersky Lab and B2B International. Researches show that approximately half of businesses surveyed understand the risks cyber-attacks pose to their finance and thinks being protected from DDoS attacks is an important cyber security requirement.
However only 24 percent of companies don’t have any protection, while 41 percent are partially protected. As a result, the majority of companies with no protection fall into the “risky group” businesses most frequently attacked “It turns out that just 34 percent of companies are fully protected against this widespread threat”, the security firm said.
Russ Madley, head of B2B, Kaspersky Lab. comments that “It’s important to take DDoS attacks seriously as they can be just as damaging to a business as any other cybercrime, especially if used as part of a bigger targeted attack”.
“The ramifications caused by these types of attacks can be far-reaching and very impactful as they’re able to reach deep into a company’s internal systems. Organizations must understand that protection of the IT infrastructure requires a comprehensive approach and continuous monitoring, regardless of the company’s size or sphere of activity”.
