Talking DDoS, Security Threats with Layer 3 Communications
DDoS attacks are the scourge of nearly every industry and vertical.
Education, for example, suffers from continual DDoS attacks, according to Alan Jones, Director of Security Services at Layer 3 Communications. That particular industry, like many others, demands solutions that allow them to meet business objectives in a cost-effective way.
We recently caught up with Jones, who joined us as a special keynote speaker at A10 Connect Texas, to talk about the threat landscape and how Layer 3 protects its customers. Watch the video:
According to Jones, Layer 3 sees mostly targeted attacks aimed at customers, such as phishing campaigns and malware.
To combat them and address customers’ security challenges, Layer 3 offers on-premise and managed security services. Layer 3 uses A10 Thunder TPS DDoS protection for its dynamic scrubbing service. When a DDoS attack hits a customer, traffic is slung to Layer 3, where it is cleaned and returned. This process minimizes downtime and disruption, Jones said.
