Source: net-security.org Service providers in Oman can help combat Distributed Denial of Services attacks | Muscat: The size, frequency and complexity of Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) attacks are increasing. The average attack size in the Middle East was 2.8 Gbps, higher than the global average of 2.3 Gbps, according to figures from Arbor\'s Atlas network by the end of 2013. Because of this, security and availability are now among the top requirements of IT departments in businesses across the region including Oman. Unfortunately, when it comes to today\'s range of sophisticated DDoS attacks, traditional security products, such as firewalls or intrusion prevention systems, are proving to be inadequate, the report said.Mahmoud Samy, regional director, Middle East, Russia, CIS at Arbor Networks says that enterprises in Oman are now more concerned about this than ever before and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country can help combat these threats, while simultaneously creating lucrative new revenue streams. The DDoS attacks are continuing to rise and both public and private data centres are prime targets. Today\'s data centre operators are seeking solutions to this pressing problem. The ISPs in Oman have a unique opportunity to respond by offering valuable network- and edge-based services that protect their customers\' data centres against DDoS attacks and drive incremental revenue.Market demandThe DDoS attacks that impact the availability of services represent a significant opportunity for ISPs. In the face of the ever-present challenge of retaining existing customers while attracting new ones, offering more high-value services such as managed security could even prove to be a competitive advantage. | http://www.timesofoman.com/News/36214/Article-Service-providers-in-Oman-can-help-combat-Distributed-Denial-of-Services-attacks | 05-07-2014 | www.timesofoman.com
