CenturyLink Launches DDoS Mitigation Appliance

CenturyLink has launched a mitigation-appliance option for its DDoS Mitigation Service that protects businesses' IT infrastructure against DDoS attacks.

The service is not currently available for sale through indirect channel partners, but may be in the future.

CenturyLink's DDoS Mitigation Service detects attack traffic – at the network level and through a mitigation appliance – before it impacts an organization's infrastructure. A team of security experts monitor CenturyLink's global mitigation system, which analyzes traffic 24/7 and diverts and scrubs potentially malicious packets. The solution protects environments whether they are accessed via CenturyLink's network, one of CenturyLink's more than 55 data centers, customer premises or a third-party data center or network, the company said.

"DDoS attacks continue to evolve, becoming more sophisticated in scale and complexity and resulting in greater downtime for organizations," said Chris Richter, vice president, managed security products and services, at CenturyLink Technology Solutions. "We designed our DDoS service to enable global protection through multiple cleansing centers around the world and flexible commercial terms. With the integration of a network-based solution with an on-site appliance, we can further serve businesses that require always-on mitigation and deliver protection for multiple third-party networks while providing full visibility and reporting across all of their networks."
