Today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing in size, frequency and complexity. No enterprise is immune to these threats. Application availability, website uptime and infrastructure accessibility are all critical for business continuity. Every minute of downtime can result in lost productivity and revenue.
Melita is offering enterprise grade DDoS mitigation solutions through CenturyLink – one of the largest global connectivity networks. CenturyLink provides layers of defense through enhanced network routing, rate limiting and filtering that can be paired with advanced network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing center solutions.
CenturyLink’s mitigation approach is informed by threat intelligence derived from visibility across its global infrastructure and data correlation. The carrier-agnostic CenturyLink DDoS Mitigation Service helps solve this problem by pulling customer traffic through route redirection onto CenturyLink global scrubbing centers for cleansing. Attack traffic is filtered out and good traffic is sent back to the customer via a dedicated Melita internet connection. This means that Melita, in partnership with CenturyLink solves business challenges by mitigating denial-of-service (DoS) attacks so that customers can stay connected to the internet, while websites and critical applications stay up and running.
