Coalition to prevent the telco from DDoS attacks

Singapore telco StarHub has joined Arbor Networks' Cloud Signaling Coalition (CSC), announced the provider of network security and management solutions on 27 August.

The CSC is an innovative partnership between service providers, data centre operators and enterprises with the mission to ensure the availability of their network infrastructure and speed time-to-mitigation for DDoS attacks.

The company joined the CSC to be able to offer differentiated managed security services, and reduce the time-to-mitigation and increase the effectiveness of the DDoS threat response, said Arbor in a statement.

"With the various networks we operate, any threats to traffic flow and network availability will have a significant impact on our customers' businesses," said StarHub's chief technology officer Mock Pak Lum. "That is a risk we cannot afford to take."

"By joining the coalition, StarHub is demonstrating its knowledge of the threat landscape and its commitment to partnering with customers to help ensure businesses are up and running and services are available," said Attley Ng, Arbor Networks vice president for Asia Pacific.
