The largest ever distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack occurred in the spring of 2018. The attack lasted more than eight minutes and measured 1.3 Tbps, according to Threatpost.
But it’s a record no one in the security industry expects to last long, as DDoS attacks continue to increase in length, strength and damage.
This type of cyberattack could cost your company an average of $50,000 per attack in lost business revenue, according to an April 2018 Coreo study. This amount is considerably less than a February 2018 report, which found that a DDoS attack could cost a small business $120,000 — and an enterprise more than $2 million.
