In August 2014, Imperva Incapsula surveyed 250 businesses having at least 250 employees to get the facts related to DDoS attack frequency and costs. Almost half-45 percent-of respondents indicated that their company had been hit by a DDoS attack at some point in the past.
The majority of assaults (86 percent) lasted less than a day, while 68 percent persisted less than 13 hours. Although seemingly short-lived, the estimated cost of any such attack is $40,000 per hour—making the approximate cost of each intrusion almost $500,000.
The costs of DDoS attacks are not just financial. In this context, 52 percent of respondents had to replace hardware or software, 50 percent had a virus or malware installed or activated, and 43 percent experienced loss of consumer trust.
In addition, as a result of DDoS penetration-combined with other hacking techniques-33 percent experienced customer data theft, while 19 percent experienced loss of intellectual property.
