The gaming industry is more susceptible to DDoS attacks than other markets. The main reason for attacks is the ruthlessness that results from tight competition in the long-standing fight for supremacy on the market. And, as a rule, the more successful a game publisher, the higher the risks will be.
The number of attacks increases annually severalfold, while the attacks become longer, more severe, and more complex. This results in server shutdowns, and players being unable log in to their accounts.
Given that online gaming is a multimillion-dollar industry, every minute of idle time means lost revenues for publishers. The most reasonable way to protect a business is to find an experienced and reliable vendor who can provide a fail-safe service.
