A report by Neustar Inc. has revealed an increase in the number and size of DDoS attacks in the United States, their costly and devastating effects on brand perception, and a heightened state of preparedness for U.S. businesses.

Key findings from the survey include:

91 percent say DDoS attacks are a bigger or same threat as last year
85 percent of companies are attacked multiple times
32 percent of companies would lose more than $100k in revenue per hour of attack
26 percent report DDoS attacks adversely affect customer trust and brand reputation
31 percent say their longest attacks last more than one day

In February this year, our CTO Mark Kedgley discussed his best practices for defending against DDoS.
