"Our DDoS Scrubbing service offers granular traffic management, which protects customer network resources so they can continue to operate at high levels of quality without impeding network performance," said Trent Pham, Director of Security Product Portfolio at tw telecom.

iParadigms, a tw telecom DDoS Scrubbing service customer, is a leading provider of originality checking and online grading that provides service to 70% of U.S. colleges as well as some international colleges. "We operate completely online, so being connected to the Internet is critical to our business," said Will Lowe, Vice President - IT Operations, iParadigms.  "We experienced a denial of service attack against our site, which crippled our ability to conduct business.   tw telecom immediately stepped in and provided us with DDoS Scrubbing, which allowed us to recover quickly from these attacks, continue to operate online and protect us against further DoS attacks." 

Most companies today have some form of web presence as part of their business strategy.  "Resilience against DoS attacks is becoming more important to a larger cross section of organizations," said Amy DeCarlo, Principal Analyst – Security and Data Center Services, Current Analysis.  " tw telecom's service is designed to maintain stability of a customer's network without disrupting their current traffic.  This gives tw telecom customers integral protection against such threats." 

tw telecom developed its DDoS Scrubbing service in response to customers' needs for network protection from denial of service attacks.  The service provides around the clock monitoring and protection against such attacks, which are becoming more and more frequent. 

"Our goal is to minimize any down time so our customers stay connected," Pham said.
