Tata Communications launches DDoS protection
TT Correspondent |  |  07 Sep 2011

Tata Communications, a leading provider of a new world of communications, launched on Wednesday  its network-agnostic Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, globally. Delivered over a cloud-based infrastructure, Tata Communications’ DDoS Detection and Mitigation services will now be available to any enterprise that depends on its internet availability to serve customers, suppliers, partners and other stake-holders – regardless of which service provider supplies it with internet connectivity.

 

DDoS attacks are caused by thousands of globally distributed internet-based ‘bots flooding target websites with such a high volume of traffic that genuine users can no longer visit. They can affect any organisation that has an online presence. These increasingly frequent attacks can be driven by crime, malice, espionage or even national security issues and typically, prevents organisations from conducting business over the Internet.

 

The DDoS solution from Tata Communications constantly monitors traffic patterns across a network, detects attacks against a customer’s internet-facing infrastructure and then ‘scrubs’ the data, discarding attack traffic while ensuring that legitimate traffic can reach the intended infrastructure. This allows the customer’s business to stay online and fully operational throughout an attack.

 

“Tata Communications operates the largest DDoS scrubbing infrastructure built into any carrier’s backbone. We are also one of the largest ISPs in the world,” says Adam Rice, Chief Security Officer and Vice President of Managed Security Services, Tata Communications.
