NTT Communications expands DDoS protection services

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT), is expanding its Distributed Denial of Service Protection Services (DPS), the company said.

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.

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.

NTT Com has globally deployed best-of-breed infrastructure with robust DDoS mitigation capabilities and sufficient capacity to combat large-scale attacks.

NTT Communications provides consultancy, architecture, security and cloud services to optimize the information and communications technology (ICT) environments of enterprises. These offerings are backed by the company´s worldwide infrastructure.
