The Rise of Distributed Denial of Service Attacks in Sub-Saharan Africa

This IDC Market Note provides a summary of select distributed-denial-of-service attacks that have occurred across Sub-Saharan Africa over the past few months and assesses the potential impact that such developments could have on markets of the region."Sub-Saharan Africa has clearly become a hot destination for high-profile distributed-denial-of-service attacks. This is evidenced by the increasing number of such attacks on private and public organizations' web portals in the region. Consequently, organizations are becoming more and more proactive and will continue to invest into security solutions that help them defend against relentless attempts to infiltrate their critical IT infrastructures." — Senior Research Analyst Mervin Miemoukanda, IDC South Africa
