DDG often unavailable from my work network

Often (this morning for example) I find that duckduckgo.com won't load from my work computer. No other website is affected like this, I can reach duck.co for example. It doesn't matter what browser I use and flushing my dns cache doesn't help.
Code:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>ping duckduckgo.com
