NaWas and NetIX cooperate against DDoS attacks
In the fight against DDoS attacks, NaWas will cooperate with NetIX in Europe for the detection and mitigation of DDoS traffic. NetIX is an organisation that, among other things, provides solutions for connectivity and peering problems.
DDoS attacks are affecting Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and enterprises more frequently than ever before. Data is lost and business operations are more hampered by the increasing number of DDoS attacks. This is also reflected in the figures. Last year, for example, the NaWas reported 1610 DDoS attacks, while in 2021 we have already recorded more than two thousand attacks. In the last quarter, the NaWas even measured an attack with a size of 319 Gbps.
Joining forces against DDoS
Joining forces to combat DDoS attacks is therefore very important, both nationally and internationally. The cooperation between NaWas and NetIX from Bulgaria underlines this international fight. The NetIX platform connects 180+ members to content from 8,000+ visible networks and 30+ Internet Exchanges and reaches daily peaks of 1Tb of traffic throughput. Frank Dupker, European Network Manager at NaWas: “NaWas started in 2013 as a pilot – today we are aiming to make our anti-DDoS services available in most European countries, and using the extensive network of NetIX is a logical choice to grow our services together. As a non-profit foundation, our goal is to fight DDoS out of Europe and to grow a larger distributed network whilst sharing the costs among as many NaWas members as possible to keep the service affordable to smaller ISPs as well.”
“We are pleased to be able to offer our members another protection service for their networks,” said Dean Belev, VP of Services at NetIX. “Malicious attacks happen every day and we want our members to feel as safe, confident and protected as possible. With the combined NetIX and NaWas solution, networks can connect and scrub their traffic even if they’re not at a NaWas-enabled facility just through becoming a NetIX member.”
