Industry:

Internet Service Provider

Challenges:

In November 2018, Columbia Wireless experienced a DDoS attack that brought down its network service for all customers in the middle of a business day. Columbia lost some large clients because of this and it earned them a bad reputation for low reliability.

Solution:

To address the problem of DDoS attacks and the ineffective process it had for dealing with them, in the Spring of 2020, Columbia Wireless deployed Corero’s SmartWall DDoS Protection solution.

Results:
  • Greater network visibility and zero downtime from DDoS

  • Detection and mitigation occurs in seconds, rather than the minutes or tens of minutes needed by traditional DDoS products and cloud services

  • The full range of volumetric attacks are mitigated all while maintaining the availability of the services it’s protecting
