NTT Communications Expands Its DDoS Protection Services
NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT), announced that it is expanding its Distributed Denial of Service Protection Services (DPS). The expanded suite of services will enable its Global IP Network customers around the world to easily customize the level of service and assistance that best fits their needs.
DDoS attacks can strike at any time, potentially crippling network infrastructure and severely degrading the performance and reachability of a website or other IP-accessible system. Depending upon the type and severity of an attack, the impact can result in significant losses in revenue and damaged assets and, most importantly, in unpleasant experiences for end users.
“Recognizing the continuously increasing size and complexity of DDoS attacks, NTT Com is expanding the mitigation options available to its Global IP Network customers,” said Brian Foust, Vice President of Customer Engineering at NTT America. “We are giving customers the opportunity to choose the tier of support they need based on their own cyber defense strategies and plans.”
The first option, DPS Control, is an entry-level tier of service that provides support on access control lists (ACL) and is intended for customers that don’t require full mitigation assistance. Using the service, a customer can define permanent ACLs which are deployed on its NTT Com interface(s) to block a network from certain types of traffic as defined by the customer.
The second option, DPS Core, is an advanced tier of service for customers that require full DDoS mitigation support. DPS Core is supported by NTT Com’s Network Security Team, the same expert team responsible for keeping the company’s tier-1 Global IP Network (AS 2914) infrastructure safe and secure.
NTT Com has globally deployed best-of-breed infrastructure with robust DDoS mitigation capabilities and sufficient capacity to combat large-scale attacks. When notified of a possible DDoS attack, the Network Security Team analyzes network data to confirm an attack is underway and then applies various countermeasures including the redirection of all traffic destined for the DDoS target through NTT Com’s mitigation platform for scrubbing.
Subscribers to DPS Core also enjoy exclusive use of the company’s DPS Portal, a platform where customers can request mitigations and configuration changes, and review past mitigation reports.
