NTT Communications will enhance its Global IP Network Service by introducing cloud-based traffic analysis for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) in Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, the Netherlands and the UK.
Applications for the service will be accepted from September 15. NTT Com also announced that it has upgraded and will add a point of presence (PoP) for the service in Tokyo for higher-quality global service.
NTT Com has been offering its cloud-based traffic analysis system for DDoS attacks, named Traffic Analysis System, in Japan since July 2009. The system enables customers to deal more robustly with increasing attacks on IP networks, including ISPs and data center operators in charge of managing IP networks.
According to Japan’s National Police Agency, damage from DDoS attacks increased worldwide in 2010, with more than 80% of the attacks in the US and China, followed by Turkey, Singapore and South Korea. NTT Com’s decision to offer traffic analysis for DDoS on an international basis is a direct result of this trend.
The Global IP Network Service will be offered as an optional service via a dedicated web portal.
