Neustar named a Leader in IDC MarketScape Worldwide DDoS Prevention Report

Neustar recognised for its advanced features and functionality, detection and mitigation techniques

LONDON -Wednesday 13 March 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Neustar®, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, announced today that it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide DDoS Prevention Solutions 2018- 2019 Vendor Assessment (DOC # US43699318 March 2019).

IDC MarketScape is the industry's premier vendor assessment tool, providing in-depth quantitative and qualitative technology market assessments of ICT vendors for a wide range of technology markets. According to IDC, the report is based on a balanced group of criteria that lead to ICT vendor's market success – not overly weighted toward offering functionality or company size.

“We’re delighted to be considered an IDC MarketScape leader within the DDoS prevention space,” said Shailesh Shukla, Neustar general manager of security solutions. “Neustar thrives on providing a broad portfolio of holistic identity resolution and unmatched mitigation strategies to protect businesses and customers’ mission critical digital assets,” he continued.

Shukla continues, “Neustar products and services leverage real-time intelligence based on the analysis of traffic, behaviour and identity to determine activity, context and intent. From this, decisions are made with respect to the type and level of protection to provide. As DDoS attacks continue to wreak havoc and pose significant challenges across the globe, we’re committed to producing the latest innovations in security to protect organisations.”

“The Neustar DDoS Protection solution offers 10+Tbps of DDoS mitigation making it one of the largest dedicated data scrubbing networks in the world,” said Martha Vazquez, IDC senior research analyst. “As an analyst, we know how important it is to have access to the best mitigation techniques, the most robust vendor-diverse protection technologies, as well as the most advanced analytics available today. Neustar provides its customers with the resources and assurance that are needed to ensure data and infrastructure is continually protected against any type or size of DDoS attack.”

Part of the Neustar Security Solutions suite, SiteProtect NG™, breaks with the tradition of designing DDoS mitigation that makes use of a high volume of small scrubbing centres with fewer, highly fortified and highly connected locations. The SiteProtect NG network has deployed large, full scale, nodes, each with its multi-terabit scrubbing capacity in North America, Europe, and Asia, South America, Africa, Australia and India.
