According to a recent study, around 65 percent of those surveyed said a DDoS Attack would cost them $240,000 in revenue per day of the attack, or $10,000 per hour; 21 percent said it would mean a loss of $1.2 million per day, or $50,000 per hour. Much of the damage depends on the industry: More than 80 percent of financial-services companies said they would lose more than $10,000 per hour, and close to 70 percent of retailers said they would lose more than $2 million a day, or more than $100,000 per hour in revenue. Not only will you be covering the cost of downtime where your customers cannot access your services or ecommerce website, you’ll be incurring enormous bandwidth costs with your hosting provider.
With a ProxyShield™ Protected IP from GigeNET, we catch all of the attack traffic keeping your website online and filter out the additional bandwidth before it even gets to your hosting providers network. The good traffic still reaches your server as intended, so there is no interruption in service for your online business.
" We received a large DDoS attack causing it to go offline. Our hosting provider at the time was unable to stop the attacks for 2 days. GigeNET got our site up within hours of contacting them and we STAYED UP! We now host ALL of our services exclusively with GigeNET! "freecodesource.com
