Tata Comm to offer built-in DDoS as part of Internet Access services in North America
TT Correspondent |  Mumbai |  21 Aug 2009

Tata Communications announced that it will offer built-in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) detection and mitigation services as part of its Dedicated Internet Access offering in North America.


Enterprises in the region will now be able to fend off DDoS attacks by the Managed Security Service of Tata Comm which will offer the services as part of its Internet Clean Pipe services.


The Internet Clean Pipe service absorbs attacks the moment the attack traffic is detected o Tata Communications’ global IP backbone. Tata Comm is leveraging its partnership with Arbor Networks for this service.


Danny McPherson, Chief Security Officer of Arbor Networks, said: "Recent incidents such as those involving social networking, government, and commercial targets over the past month should serve as a stark reminder to any Internet-connected organization that DDoS remains a very real threat, and if unprepared, may result in considerable business impact. With the scale and sophistication of attacks today, enterprises must cooperate

with their network services provider to obtain adequate protection in the event of such attacks."


Tata Communications’ Internet Clean Pipe service leverages reliable network-based defense while simultaneously optimizing bandwidth utilization. By removing attack traffic within the Tata Communications’ IP backbone, the managed service solution rapidly clears threats in the cloud before they can hit the customer network. This approach is far superior to conventional premise-based defense technology.


John Landau, Tata Communications’ Senior Vice President for Global Managed Services, said: “Tata Communications’ Internet Clean Pipe service identifies DDoS attacks well before the traffic reaches a customer’s network and mitigates the attack within the huge capacity of Tata Communications’ backbone. For customers, the service provides an effective and very affordable single-supplier combination of internet

connectivity with protection against the DDoS attacks that could otherwise seriously damage their internet dependent business.”
