Arbor Networks, a provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, stated that Tata Communications (News - Alert) joined its Cloud Signaling Coalition (CSC).
CSC consists of service providers, data center operators and enterprises and works to ensure the availability of their network infrastructure and speed time-to-mitigation for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
Eric Hemmendinger, head of product management for managed security services at Tata Communications, commented, “Tata Communications has a globally distributed, cloud-based DDoS detection and mitigation infrastructure that protects our customers' IT infrastructures from being blocked from the web. That infrastructure is working for our customers 24x7.”
Hemmendinger added, “Many of our customers are experiencing application-layer DDoS attacks that are just as dangerous as traditional network-layer volumetric attacks, and these are often most effectively mitigated at the edge of the customer’s network with the Pravail device, which is seamlessly integrated with our network-based infrastructure through Arbor’s Cloud Signaling Coalition. With Pravail and the Cloud Signaling Coalition, we are expanding our capabilities to protect our customers and extending Tata Communications' leadership position in managed security services.”
Some of the world’s finest DDoS protection providers that endorse the concept of layered, intelligent DDoS attack protection are stated to have joined the CSC (News - Alert) and the coalition is reportedly backed by Arbor products and services such as the Arbor Peakflow SP and Pravail Availability Protection System (APS).
CSC aims to acts as an immediate competitive differentiator and can increase the revenue of existing service offerings for its members.
Arbor acknowledged that Tata Communications is a renowned telecommunications provider and it joining the CSC is a great validation of Arbor’s position as a solution supplier and trusted partner. With Cloud Signaling capability, both the companies are slated to bring together all stakeholders to address the DDoS threat to availability in a comprehensive, automated manner.
