Online DDoS downtime calculator
Posted on 23 October 2012.
Prolexic has released a DDoS downtime cost calculator (registration required) which takes into consideration the many DDoS attack variables that can affect revenue.

Using this calculator, businesses that depend on e-Commerce for sales revenue can obtain an accurate and detailed risk assessment and the resulting downtime costs associated with a DDoS attack. Users can also run a number of what-if scenarios by changing any number of variables.

The calculator includes a detailed questionnaire divided into three sections: Technologies, Experience and Cost Savings. To help users complete the various fields of the calculator, Prolexic has provided relevant tips, clarifications and advice, which can be used to evaluate current DDoS distributed denial of service protection strategies for e-Commerce. To ensure privacy, no user data is recorded.

“Prolexic developed this calculator so businesses can evaluate their unique DDoS risk and downtime cost based on hard numbers, not guesswork,” said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. “We know from previous years that DDoS attacks ramp up during the critical holiday sales period, so this calculator will help businesses make more informed decisions about DDoS protection in the coming weeks.”
