Coming to their rescue is Neustar, a data-oriented company that is at the forefront of protecting online businesses from all types of cyberattacks through robust security solutions. “For over 12 years, we have been leveraging our expertise to deliver high-performance and easy-to-use security solutions that add value to our customer’s business,” says Brian McCann, President of Security Solutions at Neustar.
Neustar’s wide range of security solutions includes application and network security, DNS services, security intelligence, and web performance management. “DNS was one of the major services with which we started Neustar back in 2006 by acquiring a renowned company called UltraDNS,” says McCann. UltraDNS is an enterprise-grade DNS service that provides great visibility and connectivity to websites and other vital online assets with built-in security for superior protection.
To protect both applications and networks of an enterprise from denial-of-service attacks, the company offers UltraWAF and UltraDDoS Protect. UltraWAF (web application firewall) offers a true cloud-based, always-on approach to quickly stop the largest and most sophisticated web application cybersecurity threats. UltraDDoS Protect provides powerful analytics, 12+ Tbps of DDoS mitigation, and application-layer protection, enabling organizations to maintain their online presence, reduce the threat of theft, and protect their business.
Additionally, Neustar’s IP Intelligence services, including UltraGeoPoint and UltraThreat Feeds, enable organizations to drive better business decisions through powerful and predictive insights. UltraGeoPoint provides powerful IP geo-location and VPN data to help organizations identify and block fraudulent transactions, deliver digital media, and prevent unauthorized access to a website or content. Meanwhile, UltraThreat Feeds offers near real-time threat data to help identify the malicious domain and augment their threat intelligence platforms. As these services are cloud-based, they can be easily configured individually or together to best suit the customer’s needs.
Neustar has played a key role in helping a wide range of organizations to revamp their security processes with state-of-the-art solutions. One of the many success stories is Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM). The client wanted to make sure that their website ran seamlessly and securely, without any breaches. Through the partnership with Neustar, MLBAM started using UltraDDoS Protect to ensure its website was protected against DDoS attacks without any streaming interruptions. Additionally, its use of Neustar’s UltraGeoPoint allowed MLBAM to accurately geo-locate IP addresses to adhere to broadcast regulations and block any unauthorized viewer.
To ensure that the client’s website and services are always protected, Neustar recently launched an always-on service, a unique enhancement to its UltraDDoS Protect offering. The company also provides a free UltraVPN Protect service that can protect clients’ VPN traffic from cyber threats. Going forward, Neustar will continue to invest in its DNS feature sets by adding new firewall capabilities to help recursive and public DNS applications become more secure. “The more we grow, the more we can serve and provide greater value to all our future customers,” concludes McCann.
