Rise of the DDoS Attack Spurs Demand for Comprehensive Solutions
Threat actors use DDoS attacks to block access to targeted websites for legitimate users. These attacks are becoming increasingly disruptive, frequent, and sophisticated. As a result, businesses require purpose-built solutions to detect and block the full array of DDoS attacks. Demand for DDoS mitigation solutions is growing, but the market faces a number of challenges going forward.
-Frost & Sullivan has covered the topic of DDoS mitigation solutions from a number of strategic perspectives in previous years including the reports entitled DDoS Mitigation to the Rescue and Entering the Next Phase of DDoS Defense.
-This market engineering study comes at a time when DDoS attacks are accelerating in purpose, sophistication, complexity, scale, and frequency.
-Businesses of all size have proven to be susceptible to these attacks, and though DDoS is not a new concern, the risk of DDoS attack probability and potential for damages is at an all-time high.
-As a result, DDoS mitigation is a top-of-mind consideration for IT and security organizations around the world, and demand for DDoS mitigation solutions is growing rapidly.
-Concern about DDoS attacks and interest in DDoS mitigation solutions are very prominent now compared to previous years.
-However, the unique technical challenges of detecting and mitigating DDoS attacks poses significant challenges for the market as a whole as well as for individual competitors.
-In particular, the DDoS mitigation market is driven primarily by business risk concerns associated with loss of availability of Web sites, networks, and IT systems.
-DDoS risk, and consequently, demand for DDoS mitigation is increasing due to:
oGrowth in the maximum and average sizes of DDoS attacks
oAn increasing frequency of DDoS attacks including more sophisticated DDoS attack techniques
oAttack tools and for-hire services enable a broader range of threat actors
oA new element of data theft and network intrusion associated with DDoS attacks
-However, the DDoS mitigation market growth potential is tempered by:
oSteep product costs in developing DDoS mitigation solutions
oSignificant technical expertise required to deploy and manage DDoS mitigation solutions effectively
oRapidly changing DDoS attack trends and subsequent technical change in DDoS mitigation solutions
oGrowing competition to pure-play DDoS mitigation solutions from DDoS mitigation capabilities added to core transport service offerings of Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Communications Service Providers (CSPs), and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)
oAdditionally, broader information technology trends have the potential to dampen demand for stand-alone DDoS mitigation solutions
-A full discussion and analysis of these market trends are available in the drivers and restraints section.
