NTT Communications Expands Its DDoS Protection Services


Communications Corporation
(NTT Com), the global data and IP
services arm of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE:NTT),
announced that it is expanding its Distributed Denial of Service
Protection Services (DPS). The expanded suite of services will enable
its Global IP Network customers around the world to easily customize the
level of service and assistance that best fits their needs.

DDoS attacks can strike at any time, potentially crippling network
infrastructure and severely degrading the performance and reachability
of a website or other IP-accessible system. Depending upon the type and
severity of an attack, the impact can result in significant losses in
revenue and damaged assets and, most importantly, in unpleasant
experiences for end users.

"Recognizing the continuously increasing size and complexity of DDoS
attacks, NTT Com is expanding the mitigation options available to its
Global IP Network customers," said Brian Foust, Vice President of
Customer Engineering at NTT America. "We are giving customers the
opportunity to choose the tier of support they need based on their own
cyber defense strategies and plans."

The first option, DPS Control, is an entry-level tier of service that
provides support on access control lists (ACL) and is intended for
customers that don't require full mitigation assistance. Using the
service, a customer can define permanent ACLs which are deployed on its
NTT Com interface(s) to block a network from certain types of traffic as
defined by the customer.

The second option, DPS Core, is an advanced tier of service for
customers that require full DDoS mitigation support. DPS Core is
supported by NTT Com's Network Security Team, the same expert team
responsible for keeping the company's tier-1 Global IP Network (AS 2914)
infrastructure safe and secure.

NTT Com has globally deployed best-of-breed infrastructure with robust
DDoS mitigation capabilities and sufficient capacity to combat
large-scale attacks. When notified of a possible DDoS attack, the
Network Security Team analyzes network data to confirm an attack is
underway and then applies various countermeasures including the
redirection of all traffic destined for the DDoS target through NTT
Com's mitigation platform for scrubbing.

Subscribers to DPS Core also enjoy exclusive use of the company's DPS
Portal, a platform where customers can request mitigations and
configuration changes, and review past mitigation reports.
