Websites are the lifeblood of e-Commerce businesses and they make a major contribution to the sales revenues of brick and mortar stores as well. If a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack brings down your website for hours – or days – it can have a major impact. And not just on sales. Your share price and brand can also take a hit.
A proven strategy is to put adequate DDoS protection in place before your site is targeted. Download our new case study on e-Commerce website 1ink.com and read how CEO Roland Davoudikia protected his company against a huge 70 Gbps DDoS attack by being proactive.
“Luckily, we had Prolexic protection already in place, so the DDoS attacks didn’t affect our business,” Davoudikia says. “Had we not had Prolexic to mitigate the DDoS attacks, we could have suffered hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses, if not more. Not only would we have lost sales, but we also would have damaged our relationships with our business partners. They don’t want to work with a site that is constantly down or has performance issues. If they link to us and our site is not available, it makes us look unreliable and poor to work with.”
