Distributed-Denial-of-Services is a form of highly virulent attack with a serious increase in magnitude and complexity in recent years, and Orange Slovakia is a telecom operator managing millions of fixed and mobile connections. The Arbor Networks solution we implemented provides the required DDoS protection, allows a high level of redundancy and offers a high automation capability for incident response.”
