EMEA nodes expanded to over 1Tbps of regional capacity distributed across Frankfurt, Amsterdam and London
Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced that it has tripled its global DDoS mitigation network capacity reaching 4 Tbps across EMEA and Singapore. This places the company within close reach of its goal of a 10 Tbps Global DDoS Defence Network, which will be the world’s largest, most distributed and technically advanced DDoS mitigation defence network, by early 2018.
In EMEA, Neustar has significantly expanded network capacity with an increase of 244 percent from 320 Gbps to more than 1 Tbps distributed across three nodes in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and London alone. APAC also has a new 200 Gbps node in Singapore, doubling the in-region capacity with additional large nodes soon following. By Q1 2018, the Neustar Global DDoS Defence Network will have 27 nodes distributed across all regions.
“We are changing the model from a handful of scrubbing centres to a globally scaled distributed model. This is a big departure from when I started the DDoS defence industry,” said Barrett Lyon, Head of Security Research and Development. “The capacity of our network will enable Neustar to offer unrivalled mitigation capability and network performance to keep our customers protected against any type of DDoS attack.”
Delivering In-Region Detection and Mitigation at Scale
The expansion of Neustar’s global DDoS mitigation network meets the scale and demands required to thwart modern DDoS attacks and deliver future-proof levels of protection due to its construction design, implementation and capacity. This fast-growing network of dedicated in-region mitigation centres will also enable Neustar to improve traffic routing performance for customers during attacks. With an increased number of local detection and mitigation centres, Neustar is able to redirect traffic to local scrubbing centres at the edge of the network, closer to the source. By scrubbing a customer’s web traffic and redelivering it locally rather than having to be backhauled to a scrubbing centre that may be partway around the world, Neustar offsets latency and restores network performance more quickly and effectively resulting in faster, more efficient in-region mitigation and greater customer value.
“The construction of our new DDoS network with regionalized nodes is a game-changer for our customers,” says Lyon. “We now have the capability to meet and defeat new attacks head-on, with localized scrubbing, so customers don’t feel the impact to their networks. What we are building is the proper evolution and sophistication of DDoS defence and it’s unlike anything that is available on the market today.”
