Scaling Service Provider Business With DDoS-Mitigation-as-a-Service
Date / Time: Thursday, August 27, 2020, 12:00 p.m. New York / 6:00 p.m. London
Service providers are regular targets of DDoS attacks – either directly on their network infrastructure or indirectly via attacks on their customer networks. Regardless, any attack on service providers has a direct impact on their uptime, availability, and therefore, revenue.
Hardware DDoS appliances and cloud-based ‘scrubbing centers’ have their own limitations in terms of costs, capacity and performance – all key considerations for service providers. Service providers need a way to offer a scalable, robust (and profitable) DDoS mitigation service to their customers that helps them secure their networks and grow their revenue.
