DDoS is short for distributed denial-of-service. A DDoS attack is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to, motives for, and targets of a DDoS attack may vary, it generally comprises the concerted, malevolent efforts of a person or persons to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely.
What would happen if I didn't have protection?
- Tracking, marketing materials and website may not be available for an indefinite period of time.
- Loss in business revenue may result during an attack.
- Bandwidth utilized during a single attack can accrue tens of thousands of dollars in fees to you.
- Loss in confidence from Affiliates/Publishers can severely disrupt future business.
