Recent successful DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks have highlighted the vulnerability of even the most secure networks in the world. These types of attacks cripple a business for unspecified amounts of time, and for companies that rely on 100 percent uptime, a single minute could be very costly. By joining Arbor Networks’ Cloud Signaling Coalition (CSC), Tata Communications (News - Alert) is protecting its networks with one of the most reliable security solutions in the market.
The CSC is made up of data center operators, service providers and enterprises to make sure their network infrastructure is available when DDoS attacks take place. Arbor’s security platform offers protection to data centers by giving operators the choice of mitigating the attack in the cloud by triggering an alert to infrastructures that are upstream. Congestion that is upstream will slow down or be eliminated, protecting the service without stoppage. Additionally, the system provides real-time monitoring of the data center and detailed post mortem reports on the steps taken to mitigate the attack.
“Arbor has worked with Tata communications for many years, helping to secure its network and enabling it to deliver profitable in-cloud managed security services. With the Cloud Signaling capability, we are bringing together all stakeholders to address the DDoS threat to availability in a comprehensive, automated manner. Having a global telecommunications leader such as Tata Communications join CSC (News - Alert) is a great validation of Arbor’s position as a solution supplier and trusted partner,” said Arbor Networks president, Colin Doherty...
