As the scale and sophistication of Distributed Denial of Service attacks continues to accelerate, first-generation DDoS defense solutions fall further behind. That leaves online businesses without adequate protection, vulnerable to potentially severe interruptions in service and revenue.
One company that’s been keenly aware of this risk is PenTeleData, a leading provider of voice, video, data, and Internet services with more than sixty points of presence in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Having dealt with the shortcomings of legacy DDoS protection tools, PenTeleData decided to update defenses and extend better protection to subscribers. To do so, PenTeleData turned to Kentik, applying the extended anomaly detection, alerting, and mitigation triggering capabilities built into Kentik Detect.
