A whopping 88% of US companies claim confidence in their DDoS mitigation technologies, yet 69% have suffered an attack in the past 12 months, according to a report released today by CDNetworks that surveyed 500 senior IT professionals from the US, UK, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
Some 82% of respondents from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, were also confident in their DDoS mitigation technologies, but 57% had suffered an attack in the past year.
Despite US companies spending an average of $34,750 a year on DDoS mitigation, these companies sustained a higher percentage of attacks than those in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, which spent an average of $29,000, according to the report.
Nonetheless, 66% of US companies plan to increase their DDoS mitigation spending over the next 12 months, the report states.
