Towards the end of 2016, HighNet had a growing awareness of the threat of DDoS attacks. Their only DDoS defense at the time was monitoring and alerting on their network traffic levels and then relying on their upstream providers to blackhole suspicious traffic. The company grew to realize that this approach was increasingly unacceptable.
After considering various DDoS mitigation options, HighNet selected the Corero SmartWall® Threat Defense System (TDS).
No blocking of legitimate customer traffic
No longer dependent on a third-party to block DDoS attacks
Maximum levels of service availability are maintained for customers, even in the face of a DDoS event
