When DDoS attacks hit a business they not only disrupt the business, but distributed denial of service attacks can leave a lasting legacy of damage and destruction.
The infographic shows us that:
- There was a substantial increase in DDoS attacks between 2011 and 2012.
- Infrastructure DDoS attacks increased slightly more than application layer DDoS attacks.
- As the number of attacks grew, the average time per attack slightly decreased.
- Average bits per second and average packets per second during attacks rose sharply.
The infographic was created by the marketing and design team of one of the global leaders in DDoS protection and mitigation.
