Use cloud-based security audits to simulate massive attacks against websites, prevent costly outages: experts say
TORONTO, March 12, 2014 /CNW/ – Using armies of infected computers, criminals launch overwhelming attacks that victimize hundreds of companies daily (digitalattackmap.com), costing data centres an average of $822,000 to fix and growing in intensity every year. Fortunately an innovative new solution empowers businesses to find weaknesses, preventing outages and saving money in the process.
Internet giants like Google, Amazon and Facebook are most susceptible to costly losses up to $125k/minute, but at an average of $22,000/minute, small/mid-size businesses suffer the most. And the bad guys know it, using extortion and hijacking to profit from their DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks.
