LinkBermuda Partners To Protect Against Attacks

October 29, 2015

LinkBermuda today [Oct 29] announced the successful implementation of Arbor Networks’ market-leading DDoS detection and mitigation solutions to protect its infrastructure from DDoS attacks that they said are the primary threat to the availability of Internet based telecommunications services to the island.

“DDoS [Distributed Denial-of-Service] attacks have become a common threat to the Internet and one of the most serious. They are an attempt by outside parties to overload systems and networks with malicious requests so that they can no longer become operable,” the company said.

“DDoS attacks can cause bandwidth saturation, resulting in widespread outages to customers. These attacks can be particularly dangerous unless there is a preeminent solution in place.

“All Arbor solutions are enhanced by automatic security updates delivered by Arbor’s Security Engineering and Response Team [ASERT], helping LinkBermuda defend against both known and emerging availability threats so they can maintain business continuity – no matter what.”

“At LinkBermuda, we manage and operate capacity on diverse submarine fiber cable systems that connect Bermuda to points of presence in New York, Florida, the Caribbean and Brazil”, said Craig Davis, General Manager of LinkBermuda.

“Ensuring the availability of these links is essential for our customers and for Bermuda itself. Almost immediately after deployment, we were targeted with a DDoS attack and our DDoS protection worked exactly as designed.

“Without the Arbor DDoS solution in place, despite LinkBermuda’s position as the market leader in provision of Internet Capacity to Bermuda, customers would undoubtedly have been impacted.”

“The fact that LinkBermuda was able to mitigate a significant DDoS attack so quickly after initial deployment is a testament not only to their team’s capabilities, but to Arbor’s engineers as well”, said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.

“We have developed solutions that combine market-leading technology and mitigation capabilities without losing sight of usability and workflow. Great products can’t have one or the other, they need both.”
