November 19, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsProlexic Technologies, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, today released a new DDoS infographic illustrating how retailers can protect their websites and safeguard revenues from cyber attacks this holiday season. The infographic can be viewed and downloaded at www.prolexic.com/safeguardrevenues.
According to Prolexic's quarterly global ddos attack reports, Q4 is typically one of the most active quarters for DDoS attacks. Because DDoS perpetrators attempt to cause the most financial damage and disruption, the number of cyber attacks directed against e-Commerce websites tends to peak during the critical Q4 sales period.
Prolexic's infographic highlights four key warning signs that can indicate an e-Commerce attack is imminent. It also provides these recommendations for retailers to follow to help maximize website availability during the holiday shopping season:
"The emergence of easy-to-use DDoS toolkits makes it simple for malicious actors to launch DDoS attacks – using computers or even mobile apps," said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. "This makes it urgent that in Q4, all online retailers take the threat of DDoS attack seriously."
