Thailand’s CAT Telecom has joined Arbor’s Cloud Signaling Coalition (CSC).
Arbor’s cloud SignalingSM feature provides communication between network perimeter and in-cloud based DDoS protection systems. This integrated, multi-layered protection is considered best practice when defending against today’s sophisticated and explosive DDoS attacks.
Viroj Tocharoenvanith, SEVP of marketing and sales for CAT Telecom said “Defending against DDoS attacks can be a challenge for an ISP and its enterprise customers.”
“Not only can we deploy the market’s leading solution to protect our own infrastructure, we can simultaneously solve a problem for our customers by offering DDoS security services,” the executive added.
When an enterprise or data center operator discovers that they are under a service-disrupting DDoS attack, they can choose to mitigate the attack in the cloud through the Cloud Signaling system, simply by clicking on a drop down menu and triggering an alert to the service provider.
The signal can also be set at a predetermined capacity level for more automated protection. A volumetric DDoS attack congesting the upstream links would immediately diminish or disappear altogether from the data center’s access links, and service availability would be protected.
Participation in the Cloud Signaling Coalition allows CAT Telecom to provide differentiated managed security services, reduces the time to mitigation and increases the effectiveness of the response against DDoS threats.
