Tata
Communications

announced the global launch of its network-agnostic Distributed
Denial of Service (DDoS) protection. Delivered over a cloud-based
infrastructure, the DDoS Detection and Mitigation services will be
available to any enterprise that depends on its internet availability
to serve customers, suppliers, partners and other stake-holders, said
a press release.

DDoS attacks are caused by thousands of
globally distributed I
nternet-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.

DDoS
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.

“With this scale, we
have successfully defended every DDoS attack levied against our
customers. By expanding our offering to be network agnostic, we’re
now making the capability available to a much larger community – a
community that requires access to a high-capacity infrastructure
where their traffic can be scrubbed rather than black-holed,” he
said.
