Prolexic Releases Online DDoS Downtime Calculator

Calculator takes into consideration many DDoS attack variables that affect revenue

HOLLYWOOD, FL – (October 22, 2012) – Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, announced today that it has released a DDoS downtime cost calculator, available online at www.prolexic.com.

The Prolexic DDoS downtime calculator takes into consideration the many DDoS attack variables that can affect revenue. Using the Prolexic 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 Prolexic 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 by Prolexic.

"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."
