UltraDDoS Protect Mitigation Service

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks represent a constant and persistent threat to the operations and security of every organization that has a digital presence. According to our 2017 research, an organization’s chance of suffering a DDoS attack is 80 percent, and when attacked, that same percentage can expect repeated assaults. But the damage doesn’t end there: Nearly half of reported attacks are conducted in concert with a breach, often leaving behind virus infections, data theft, malware activation, and now – ransomware attacks.

Mitigating the DDoS attacks of today and tomorrow requires more than just technology. UltraDDoS Protect provides you with powerful analytics, top-tier DDoS mitigation, and layer 7 protection that allows you to suppress threats before they become attacks. UltraDDoS Protect is relied upon by companies of all sizes to keep their infrastructure and proprietary information safe and available.


More Than Bits and Bytes, It’s Business

In addition to business disruption and brand embarrassment, attackers can have many motives for launching assaults. DDoS assaults are commonly used to obscure and obstruct attempts to figure out who’s attacking, and what they’re going after. Such activity is referred to as a “smokescreen,” and in today’s world with so much at stake, you can’t take chances – it’s imperative to detect and defeat DDoS attackers as quickly as possible.

Neustar UltraDDoS Protect is the DDoS protection that your organization needs. Built on a massive global mitigation platform using best-of-breed technologies, time-proven best practices, and unparalleled expertise, Neustar delivers a top-tier solution leveraging three proven principles of DDoS protection.

The result is incredibly fast response against DDoS trouble when you need it most.

UltraDDoS Protect Always

Neustar offers several options to keep your traffic in an always-ready state — Always-Proxied, Always-Routed, and Always-Hybrid. Neustar UltraDDoS Protect Always-Hybrid features the best-in-class Arbor APS DDoS mitigation appliance that combats attacks locally, without a moment's delay. When attacks exceed local capacity, Neustar fails over your traffic to the UltraDDoS Protect cloud and manages the response until the danger passes. Best of all, it is a fully managed service, including remote management of your Arbor box. Neustar monitors, detects and responds to DDoS attacks for you, so you can commit resources to higher priorities.

Neustar UltraVPN Protect

Companies encouraging employees to work from home (WFH) using VPN connections are more vulnerable to the damaging impact of a DDoS attack, which could lock out employees, expose digital assets and bring business to a halt. UltraVPN Protect safeguards your system with an always-on VIP proxy strategy. Our easily implemented solution provides comprehensive DDoS protection for even the largest, globally dispersed VPN networks. It instantly scrubs malicious traffic, returning clean traffic to ensure your virtual workforce remains connected and your business continues operating despite a massive or long-duration attack.

Neustar NetProtect™

The ideal cybersecurity solution for large enterprises, Neustar NetProtect augments the UltraDDoS Protect network with a direct connection to mitigate a DDoS attack. It's strategically situated directly inside our data scrubbing centers around the globe. NetProtect addresses and mitigates, or entirely avoids, the concerns of latency, complexity, and other anomalies commonly associated with legacy Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel systems. Created specifically for demanding and advanced network requirements that require support beyond basic proxy or VPN services, NetProtect is focused on transmitting sensitive data quickly and securely.

Neustar UltraWAF

Neustar UltraWAF and UltraDDoS Protect provide a true cloud-based Always-On approach to quickly stop the largest DDoS and most sophisticated web application threats, including Layer 7 attacks, without reducing network performance or adding additional levels of complexity to your existing security strategies.


The Neustar Advantage – Automation and Flexibility

Automation is the key to speed and it’s crucial to gaining an advantage against DDoS attackers – especially those with an appetite for breach. Flexibility is the ability to right size the DDoS protection investment. Since no two organizations have the same requirements, the Neustar combination of automation and flexibility helps tighten and exact defenses that mold to specific defense strategies – all while avoiding expensive customization and long deployment periods.

DNS/BGP Customer Triggered Mitigation

Standard configurations that allow a UltraDDoS Protect customer to automate mitigation in either DNS redirection or BGP connection service configurations. Attack traffic will spark mitigation for the targeted host reducing the time-to-mitigation and improving reaction times.

API-Triggered Mitigation

Available with Neustar’s standard on-demand BGP service and allows customers to call the UltraDDoS Protect API to begin their mitigation without intervention from Neustar. The ability for this API to be leveraged with other security services creates new potential stable state improvements and protective actions automatically.

Detection and Alerting Automated Mitigation

Customers direct their NetFlow data to Neustar for constant analysis and mitigation triggers automatically when an attack is detected. For those short on expertise and staff, this defense option provides a valuable extension to stretched security operations.

Cloud Signaling Triggered Automated Mitigation

Endpoint detection based upon bits per second and/or packets per second thresholds that, when exceeded, automatically initiates BGP redirection mitigation. The time to mitigation is instantaneous and throws back attackers the moment they strike.
