Telindus Telecom, the first global alternative operator in Luxembourg, has successfully deployed cyber-security technology from Alcatel-Lucent designed to protect against the growing threat from ‘distributed denial of service’ (DDoS) attacks.
During such attacks, hackers seek to overwhelm cloud and network infrastructures with huge volumes of traffic. Alcatel-Lucent’s solution jointly developed with Arbor Networks, a leader in network monitoring and security solutions, and comprising Alcatel-Lucent’s IP routers and Arbor’s Threat Management System enables Telindus to intercept and eliminate DDoS traffic at the ‘edge’ of its network, before it reaches critical infrastructure or its enterprise customers.
Gérard Hoffmann, Chairman & Managing Director of Telindus Luxembourg said, “DDoS has emerged as an incredibly resilient and innovative attack vector. A cloud-based service to handle DDoS attacks is a highly valued service differentiator because many businesses do not have the skill-set orresources to keep up with this rapidly escalating threat on their own.”
Luis Martinez Amago, President of Alcatel-Lucent’s EMEA region said,” The faster we can identify and isolate the problem, the sooner everyone can get back to their business. By building Arbor’s TMS into our service routers, we’re essentially moving the defensive perimeter out to the ‘edge’ of the provider’s network in effect stopping the criminals at the border before they can infiltrate enterprise premises, or damage the provider’s network.”
