CenturyLink opens DDoS mitigation service to resellers

MONROE, La., Jan. 20, 2018 – Resellers seeking a DDoS mitigation solution backed by a global IP backbone can now add DDoS mitigation services from CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) to complement their existing security solutions portfolios. CenturyLink’s DDoS Mitigation Service is a tool for enterprises to safeguard critical data and systems by bringing protection closer to the network edge.

CenturyLink’s 11 globally distributed DDoS traffic scrubbing centers in North America, EMEA, APAC and LATAM leverage the company’s more than 43 terabits of backbone capacity. When combined with its global Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) FlowSpec deployment, CenturyLink’s DDoS mitigation service represents one of the world’s largest attack mitigation capabilities.  

Resellers benefit from CenturyLink’s integrated selling approach, with specialized security sales and solutions architects to support them throughout the sales process, from design, quote and order to provisioning. 

Key Facts

  • Both resellers and end customers have access to managed services with 24/7 support via CenturyLink’s Global Security Operations Center (SOC) and customer portal.
  • CenturyLink mitigates attack traffic in its global scrubbing centers before returning clean traffic over a private connection or the public internet; the company can re-route and scrub internet connections, not just on-net capacity, for carrier-agnostic protection and detection.
  • CenturyLink offers additional protection beyond DDoS scrubbing, including the ability to address threats through enhanced network routing, rate limiting and IP filtering alongside a network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing solution.
  • CenturyLink’s DDoS mitigation service is bolstered by its global visibility of the threat landscape. In turn, data from the DDoS mitigation service also informs our threat research team of evolving threats.
