Big win at the GTB Telecoms Innovation Summit & Awards 2017
May 23, 2017, London: Deutsche Telekom ICSS and Arbor Networks win coveted Innovation Award for 360°security solution "DDoS Defense”
ICSS is proud to announce its latest award! This time it is the coveted Innovation Award in the category "Wholesale Service Innovation". The prize was presented at the Global Telecoms Business (GTB) Innovation Summit & Awards 2017 in London on May 23rd.
The GTB judges were impressed by the inroads ICSS has made in the area of security. To help fight the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks, ICSS launched its DDoS Defense strategy in 2016. This layered solution provides backbone, in-cloud and on-premise protection against volumetric as well as multi-vector distributed denial of service attacks.
DDoS Defense also highlights ICSS’s goal of working together with partners. The breakthrough security offering is the result of months of collaboration between Deutsche Telekom ICSS and Arbor Networks. It takes advantage of the Arbor Cloud, which has 2Tbps of mitigation capacity and - being cloud based - is the only viable solution for high volume attacks. Because it is ISP agnostic, this is also the perfect alternative for multi-national companies or those using several internet providers.
For application attacks, which are not detected by cloud solutions, ICSS’s DDoS Defense also provides always-on on-premise devices. In addition, for our business internet access and IP Transit customers, we deliver backbone protection for attacks on networks and bandwidths.
“As one of our many offerings, our DDoS Defense solution fits perfectly into the comprehensive 360° security strategy of ICSS,” stated Mardia van der Walt, Senior Vice President Deutsche Telekom ICSS. “It is a true innovation in terms of wholesale service and infrastructure protection. This win also acknowledges our goal of partnering to benefit the industry as a whole – because cyber security is a challenge we can only tackle together.”
“The collaboration with Deutsche Telekom ICSS has been a three-way win: for the customers we serve, for ICSS and for us. By joining the forces of a Tier 1 telco provider with the world’s leading DDoS mitigation company, we are able to offer the global marketplace comprehensive, premium security protection. This award proves that collaborating on security is a smart and – in today’s uncertain world – necessary move,” noted Jeremy Nicholls, Vice President Global Channels & Alliances at Arbor Networks.
