Calculate the cost and probability of a DDoS attack

DDoS attacks are becoming increasingly larger, more complex, and perpetrated by cyber extortionist instead of hacktivists and vandals, according to a recent survey from Arbor Networks.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan finds that the DDoS mitigation market earned revenues of $449.5 million in 2014 and estimates this to more than double to $977.2 million by 2019.

DDoS Downtime Calculator

Incapsula’s DDoS Downtime Calculator is designed to help you assess the risks associated with an attack, offering case-specific information adjusted to the realities of your organization.

The algorithm inside the calculator is based on real-world information from a DDoS Impact Survey conducted among 270 organizations representing various sizes and industries.

Subsequent data analysis uncovered factors that cause impact cost variances. These insights helped estimate the probability that your organization will incur a DDoS assault.

Further, the results enabled design the DDoS Downtime Calculator to provide personalized risk assessments based on:

  • Company size
  • Industry
  • Type of hosting environment (e.g., cloud, VPS, own data center)
  • Most vulnerable operational area
  • Security measures in place
  • Current level of confidence in DDoS prevention capabilities

To use the DDoS Downtime Calculator, simply visit the calculator page and answer six short questions about your organization and its existing security measures.

Based on your input, using a series of linear regression models, the calculator then estimates:

  • The probability that your organization will ever be hit by a DDoS attack
  • The probability that your organization will be targeted in the next year
  • The cost per hour of such an assault
  • Expected annual cost of attacks if DDoS protection measures are not adopted.
