Neustar Expands Its DDoS Mitigation Defence Network in EMEA and Japan

neustar-ddos-mitigationNeustar, a provider of real-time information services and Internet security solutions, has announced the expansion of its DDoS mitigation defense network in EMEA. Scrubbing centers in London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Marseille have been expanded, while new facilities in Stockholm and also Tokyo have gone live.

The new Neustar scrubbing centers were deployed in partnership with Arbor Networks to deliver one of the world’s most distributed and technically advanced DDoS mitigation defense networks.

The company has planned to build the world’s largest DDoS mitigation defense network. Through to mid-2018, the Neustar Global DDoS Defence Network will continue to grow its scrubbing capacity, with scrubbing centers distributed across all regions. This would 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 regionalized nodes is a game-changer for our customers”, said Barrett Lyon, General Manager, DDoS Defence, Neustar. “We are continually future-proofing the network to meet and defeat new attacks head-on, with enhanced and localized 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 defense capabilities needed to defend against the attacks of tomorrow.”

SiteProtect NG network

The Neustar Global DDoS Defense Network is integrated with the Neustar Web Application Firewall (WAF), protecting against sophisticated application layer attacks. The combination of technologies would deliver multi-layered protection against the most aggressive and sophisticated attacks seen today.

Neustar’s security solution, SiteProtect NG, breaks with the tradition of designing network protection that makes use of a high volume of small scrubbing centers with fewer, highly fortified and highly connected locations. Neustar has deployed large, full scale, nodes for its SiteProtect NG network, each with its multi-terabit scrubbing capacity in North America, Europe, and Asia with South America, Africa, Australia, and India slated for early 2018.
