Level 3 Opens Asia Pacific DDoS Scrubbing Centers in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore

Multinational companies located in the Asia-Pacific region now have access to Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation solutions from Level 3 Communications. The new scrubbing centers in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore signify an expansion of the company’s security service functionality.

Level 3 has opened the additional scrubbing centers to provide customers with infrastructure in the region to quickly mitigate attacks with less disruption to business operations.

The company’s DDoS ingest capacity, 4.5 terabits per second, would provide a high capacity to ingest massive attacks.

The added service in the Asia-Pacific region is carrier agnostic and pulls all customer traffic into Level 3’s globally located scrubbing centers for cleansing before forwarding legitimate traffic through a private connection or the public Internet.

24/7 Security Operations Centers detect anomalies in global NetFlow sessions, perform impact analyses, notify customers of threatening conditions and then help them mitigate the issue. Level 3 now has 11 scrubbing centers on four continents. Other locations include São Paulo, Frankfurt, London, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C.
