Neustar Expands European Data Scrubbing Estate to Build the World’s Largest DDoS Mitigation Defense Network

•    London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Marseille scrubbing centers expanded to grow regional capacity 
•    New scrubbing centers opened in Stockholm and Tokyo
•    Neustar now has the largest, most distributed and technically advanced DDoS mitigation capacity network, globally 

Neustar, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced the expansion of its DDoS mitigation defense network in EMEA. Scrubbing centers in London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Marseille have been expanded, while new facilities in Stockholm and Tokyo have gone live. 

The new scrubbing centers were deployed in partnership with Arbor Networks to deliver the world’s largest, most distributed and technically advanced DDoS mitigation defense network.

Through to mid-2018, the Neustar Global DDoS Defense Network will continue to grow its scrubbing capacity, with scrubbing centers distributed across all regions. This will provide unequalled capacity, underpinned by the best mitigation technology available in market, and over 15 years of mitigation experience.

“As part of Neustar’s quest to end the DDoS attack arms race, the construction of our enhanced network with regionalized nodes is a game-changer for our customers,” said Barrett Lyon, Vice President, Research and Development, Neustar. “We are continually futureproofing the network to meet and defeat new attacks head-on, with enhanced and localized scrubbing. Put another way, unlike anything else available on the market today, Neustar is building a constantly evolving network that delivers clients with the required level of sophisticated DDoS defense capabilities needed to defend against the attacks of tomorrow.” 

The Neustar Global DDoS Defense Network is integrated with the Neustar Web Application Firewall (WAF), protecting against sophisticated application layer attacks. The combination of technologies delivers multi-layered protection against the most aggressive and sophisticated attacks seen today.

The addition of the new nodes will mean a total network capacity exceeding any other DDoS mitigation network and achieve Neustar’s vision of providing a network that enables unrivalled mitigation capability and network performance, keeping its customers protected against any type of DDoS attack.

Neustar’s security solution, SiteProtect NG, breaks with the tradition of designing network protection that makes use of a high volume of small scrubbing centers with fewer, highly fortified and highly connected locations. SiteProtect NG network has deployed large, full scale, nodes, each with its multi-terabit scrubbing capacity in North America, Europe, and Asia with South America, Africa, Australia, and India slated for early 2018.
