Neustar expands data scrubbing estate in Europe, opens new facilities in Sweden, Japan

Friday 9 February 2018 | 15:46 CET | News

Neustar expanded scrubbing centres in London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Marseille and opened new facilities in Stockholm and Tokyo to deliver what it calls the world’s largest, most distributed and technically advanced DDoS mitigation defence network. The new scrubbing centres were deployed in partnership with Arbor Networks. Through to mid-2018, the Neustar Global DDoS Defence Network will continue to grow its scrubbing capacity, with scrubbing centres distributed across all regions.

The Neustar Global DDoS Defence 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, Neustar said.

Neustar’s security platform, SiteProtect NG, breaks with the tradition of designing network protection that makes use of a high volume of small scrubbing centres 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.
