Neustar SiteProtect-DDoS Detection & Alerting

Let the experts do it for you.


Over 2,000 DDoS attacks every day

65% of organizations see 3 or more attacks each year

DDoS attacks can cost up to $100K per hour

As if you didn’t have enough on your plate already.

Avoiding the costly impact from DDoS attacks requires constant vigilance. After all, you can’t avoid disaster if you can’t see it coming. But, how do you know the threat is a DDoS attack? Can you distinguish a denial of service strike from other network issues? Are you continuously monitoring your traffic for these types of threats?

The answer is probably no—and with good reason. DDoS detection and alerting aren’t your core tasks. They require dedicated staff and purpose-built solutions, combining to analyze traffic and launch effective DDoS mitigation. That’s exactly what Neustar offers to SiteProtect customers.

We’ll Take Away the Worry

Our Security Operations Center (SOC) is on the job 24/7, watching for suspicious traffic both globally and on your network, helping you decide when and how to respond. This unified approach reduces confusion, downtime and revenue loss. During an emergency every second counts. If your ecommerce site, partner portal or email servers go down, you’ll face customer service nightmares, brand damage and lost revenues.
