Corero Network Security and Juniper Networks will provide DDoS solution to Plusnet GmbH

Corero Network Security, a leading provider of real-time automatic Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber defense solutions, and Juniper Networks, a leader in AI-driven secure networks, are partnering to provide Plusnet, a organization providing communications and network services to 25,000 businesses in Germany, with their common DDoS protection solution to protect its infrastructure, business and customers within seconds after a DDoS attack.

Over the past 20 years, DDoS attacks have always been part of the threat landscape, but their frequency, scale and sophistication continue to increase. Plusnet, which serves 200 cities and regions in Germany, previously relied on an in-house data filtering solution to analyze anomalies in traffic patterns. However, this in-house solution required manual intervention, which was neither practical nor effective as attacks escalated and evolved. Plusnet needed to automate DDoS attack mitigation with effective, dynamic, and scalable protection to defend its nationwide network from attack-induced outages.

“During the testing phase of the Juniper-Corero solution, we were able to immediately see a manageable flow of DDoS attacks. With the Juniper-Corero solution, Plusnet is able to further improve network protection without any significant impact on network performance, said Ralf Weber, Network and Security Competence Center Manager, Plusnet.

Solution strengths:

• The joint solution removes malicious traffic at the edge of the network, as close to the source as possible, providing fast, effective protection at a lower cost.

• Plusnet has taken an active approach to thwarting DDoS attacks with Juniper Networks and Corero Joint DDoS Protection, providing real-time detection and line-rate mitigation of DDoS attacks, which is able to identify and block attacks very important in seconds.

• Juniper Networks MX-Series Universal Routing Platforms work with Corero SmartWall Threat Defense Director to quickly identify, accurately detect, and automate attack mitigation. Continuous analysis and monitoring provides complete visibility into data patterns and anomalies for network security professionals.

• As DDoS attacks continue to increase, the protection capability provided by this solution can be extended to tens of terabits per second.

“More than ever, providers need to ensure their infrastructure and business operations are always available to deliver an exceptional user experience. This can only be achieved when security is built into the same network infrastructure that provides connectivity and extended to all connection points. Plusnet is a prime example of leveraging Juniper Connected Security to enable the threat-aware network, ensuring its operations are fully protected 24/7 against the growing risk of DDoS attacks. said Samantha Madrid, vice president, Security Business & Strategy, Juniper Networks.

“We are very pleased to continue our partnership with Juniper Networks to deliver a superior DDoS solution that now protects thousands of customers worldwide. The SmartWall TDD solution combines Corero’s surgically precise, real-time automatic DDoS protection with the high-performance packet filtering of Juniper MX series routers. This, coupled with the complete attack visibility, has enabled Plusnet to implement a state-of-the-art solution capable of detecting and mitigating DDoS attacks in seconds to protect its network and those of its customers,” said Lionel. Chmilewsky, CEO of Corero Network. Security.
