Jul 25, 2017

Adds New Web Application Firewall Capabilities to World’s Largest DDoS Defense Network

Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today introduced its new Integrated Security Platform, continuing to help organizations stay always on, always ready to defend against security threats. Neustar helps enterprises not only defend their sites, but also monitor and accelerate them through the largest security cloud worldwide and one of the most experienced teams, using proprietary threat intelligence. The new portal summarizes critical information and provides a unified dashboard view of all Neustar Security Solutions in a single pane to expose threats and performance issues quickly. In addition, Neustar today announced it has added Web Application Firewall (WAF) capabilities to its security portfolio, building on its innovative SiteProtect DDoS defense solution.

“I joined Neustar because of its deep commitment to innovating and to stay ahead of the most dangerous DDoS and other cyber-related attacks,” said Barrett Lyon, Vice President, Research and Development for Neustar Security Solutions, and DDoS industry pioneer. “It’s our goal to ensure that our customers have the best protection, user experience, customer experience, configuration options and analytics at their disposal. With the addition of WAF technology, we will continue to build our capabilities to combat the most challenging problems, both today and in the future.”

The new Neustar Integrated Security Platform showcases critical security and network performance information – DDoS mitigation activity, authoritative DNS query traffic, blocked query data for recursive DNS, IP intelligence data, web performance load and response times – and delivers it in one place. The platform provides intuitive data visualization that helps organizations easily monitor and manage critical services and understand their operational state in one glance, while allowing the administration of Neustar Security Solutions from one central point.

Additionally, Neustar continues to make significant investments in its Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense offerings by:

  • Quadrupling its global DDoS defense capacity to 4 Tbps, on track to have 10 Tbps online in Q1 2018.
  • Expanding regional capacity in Europe and Asia, with new scrubbing centers in London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Tokyo and Singapore to improve customer network performance during DDoS mitigations while also supporting regional data compliance requirements.
  • Delivering a new WAF service that provides robust additional protection against layer 7 web attacks with seamless integration and administration of the Neustar DDoS defense platform.
  • Advancing analytics and automation tools to give cloud control directly to customers.

“Neustar is committed to innovating and developing advanced capabilities to prepare for both today’s attacks, as well as what’s coming next,” said Nicolai Bezsonoff, General Manager, Neustar Security Solutions. “With Neustar Security Solutions, enterprises can maximize revenue gains and minimize the risk of revenue losses by delivering a fast, secure and reliable online experience for their end users.”

Over 2,500 leading enterprises and government organizations worldwide use Neustar Security Solutions to keep their organizations secure. Neustar delivers a comprehensive set of solutions for organizations looking to leverage real-time information to improve their security posture.
