(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – C4L has commenced deployment of a network wide DDoS monitoring and mitigation solution for its high performance Data Centre network, coreTX. A10 Networks Thunder Protection System hardware has been combined with FlowTraq network traffic forensics software to protect coreTX customers from DDoS attacks.
Businesses are moving ever more services to the Data Centre, or Cloud platforms located therein, making them highly dependent on network availability. The potential impact of any outage has increased correspondingly, downtime or the inability to connect to the internet results in immediate revenue and reputation impact. Thus, a key consideration for all clients within the Data Centre environment is network security, both physical security and also against one of the greatest threats to service uptime, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
Keith Archer, Regional Sales Director of A10 Networks said “C4L belongs to a new generation of innovative service provider looking to provide a holistic approach to DDOS mitigation and protection to its customer base. A10 and C4L share a common culture of both innovation and customer care . We are hugely excited and proud to help enable C4Lto deliver an industry leading DDOS Mitigation solution powered by A10 Thunder TPS.
Alex Cruz Farmer, Technical Director of C4L said: “The decision to deploy a network-wide protection against a variety of sophisticated volumetric, protocol, resource and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks involved an intense investigatory process which C4L took extremely seriously. A10 Network’s Thunder Threat Protection System (TTPS) exceeded C4L’s already high requirements for coreTX. We wanted a protection for our customers that matched the calibre of the coreTX network itself, so that the design stays on top ”
