Web application and DDoS attacks hit enterprises without warning or reason. Most Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks require little skill to launch with  attackers can simply rent resources from DDoS-for-hire sites at a low cost.. In comparison, DDoS attacks typically result in:

Operational disruption

Loss of confidential data

Lost user productivity

Reputational harm

Damage to partner and customer relations

Lost revenue

Depending on your industry, that could add up to tens of thousands of dollars in damage and in some cases it could be millions. Only 2% of organizations said their web applications had not been compromised in the past 12 months 98% said they had.
