LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced the expansion of its DDoS mitigation defence network in EMEA. Scrubbing centres in London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Marseille have been expanded, while new facilities in Stockholm and Tokyo have gone live.
The new scrubbing centres were deployed in partnership with Arbor Networks to deliver the world’s largest, most distributed and technically advanced DDoS mitigation defence network.
Through to mid-2018, the Neustar Global DDoS Defence Network will continue to grow its scrubbing capacity, with scrubbing centres distributed across all regions. This will provide unequalled capacity, underpinned by the best mitigation technology available in market, and over 15 years of mitigation experience.
“As part of Neustar’s quest to end the DDoS attack arms race, the construction of our enhanced network with regionalised nodes is a game-changer for our customers”, said Barrett Lyon, General Manager, DDoS Defence, Neustar. “We are continually futureproofing the network to meet and defeat new attacks head-on, with enhanced and localised scrubbing. Put another way, unlike anything else available on the market today, Neustar is building a constantly evolving network that delivers clients with the required level of sophisticated DDoS defence capabilities needed to defend against the attacks of tomorrow,” Lyon added.
The Neustar Global DDoS Defence Network is integrated with the Neustar Web Application Firewall (WAF), protecting against sophisticated application layer attacks. The combination of technologies delivers multi-layered protection against the most aggressive and sophisticated attacks seen today.
The addition of the new nodes will mean a total network capacity exceeding any other DDoS mitigation network and achieve Neustar’s vision of providing a network that enables unrivalled mitigation capability and network performance, keeping its customers protected against any type of DDoS attack.
Neustar’s security solution, SiteProtect NG, breaks with the tradition of designing network protection that makes use of a high volume of small scrubbing centres with fewer, highly fortified and highly connected locations. SiteProtect NG network has deployed large, full scale, nodes, each with its multi-terabit scrubbing capacity in North America, Europe, and Asia with South America, Africa, Australia, and India slated for early 2018.
