TAMPA, Fla., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright House Networks Enterprise Solutions today announced that it has launched DDoS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) Mitigation, adding this advanced and cloud-based Internet security service to its existing array of Managed Services. The new DDoS Mitigation service protects organizations from DDoS attacks by stopping them before they ever reach a firm's corporate network, ensuring business continuity in the face of a malicious attack.
As organizations continue to rely more heavily on Internet connectivity, the threat of DDoS attacks continues to gain in intensity, complexity, and frequency every year, leaving many organizations unprepared for the havoc they cause. Bright House Networks DDoS Mitigation service delivers 24/7/365 advanced threat protection and proactive measures against malicious intruders and unauthorized activities. Additionally, enterprises gain the benefits of traffic visibility, actionable intelligence, and cloud-based traffic scrubbing. The new service provides real-time threat detection, which notifies a business when attacks are imminent, and diverts the threat away from the organization's network, safeguarding critical data and systems.
"DDoS attacks are devastating to an enterprise that does not have a mitigation strategy. Relying on in-house solutions can stress IT staff and resources at a significant cost to a company's data security and bottom line. Some businesses may never recover from an attack," said Craig Cowden, chief network officer and senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions, Bright House Networks. "Bright House Networks' cloud-based DDoS Mitigation provides our Enterprise clients with a hosted solution based on best in class technology, facilitating the detection and mitigation of known attack signatures. This provides significant financial advantages and budget predictability."
Bright House Networks Enterprise Solutions offers a comprehensive portfolio of voice, data, cloud, and managed services that can be customized to meet the communications needs of any organization. The company offers scalable solutions for clients to expand their level of service as needed, all delivered over its extensive and secure facilities-based IP core fiber network, which it owns and operates for best in class performance and reliability.
