Neustar Announces NetProtect: A Direct Connect Distributed Denial of Service Defense Solution

Jaa

Neustar®, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today announced the release of Neustar NetProtect™, a direct connect Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) defense solution that is currently available in 61 data centres located across ten countries. In complement to Neustar SiteProtect NG®, a DDoS mitigation solution that protects against web application attacks, the NetProtect network is strategically situated directly inside data centres in order to address and mitigate or entirely avoid the concerns of latency, complexity and other anomalies which are commonly associated with legacy Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel systems.

Created specifically for demanding and advanced network requirements that require support beyond basic proxy or VPN services, NetProtect is focused on transmitting sensitive data quickly and securely. Neustar’s strategic fortification of a vast data centre ecosystem in combination with Neustar's design and implementation of the new NetProtect solution decreases system complexity. Such system simplification has traditionally presented a technical challenge because of the need to overlay networks on top of physical networks in order to transfer data between multiple locations.

“DDoS defense technology is constantly improving and as a result Neustar is focused on creating solutions that provide our clients with a secure infrastructure built on a foundation of unmatched stability, resiliency and performance,” said Barrett Lyon, General Manager, DDoS Defense at Neustar. “I am very bullish about the DDoS evolution and, without a doubt, connecting directly to defense networks rather than routing through tunnels will become the norm. This will allow for greater security and less intrusive protection in order to mitigate attacks consistently and effectively, without introducing unnecessary volatility.”

Unlike legacy tunneling services, NetProtect does not require additional software or hardware to transfer data across networks. By connecting directly within the data centre, NetProtect removes the introduction of unnecessary additional entry points on the network and eliminates the associated risk that can lead to an increase of malicious traffic or impair or complicate a customer’s ability to define its routing policies. As well, by reducing susceptibility to variances and vulnerabilities derived from traversing external locations allows Neustar to decrease associated issues such as network connection latency and fragmentation.

With plans to expand into 14 countries and over 80 data centres within the next six months, the NetProtect solution will be one of the most robust and always-on direct-connect DDoS defense services in the industry. NetProtect is unparalleled in its ability to connect mission critical network applications directly across global facilities in order to provide advanced defenses across any application.

Ipsen Presents the Results of the First in-Human Study of a Recombinant Fast-Acting Neurotoxin (rBoNT-E) at TOXINS 201917.1.2019 09:30Tiedote

Regulatory News: Results of the first in-human study of a recombinant neurotoxin are being presented at the TOXINS International Conference in Copenhagen. Ipsen’s recombinant BoNT serotype E (rBoNT-E) was investigated in a phase I study that demonstrated its safety and tolerability profile in healthy volunteers1. The study also reported that it has a faster onset of action and a shorter duration of effect, as well as a quick time to peak activity, in comparison with established BoNT-A products. Further studies will be initiated to establish potential aesthetic and therapeutic uses of this investigational therapy. “The application of recombinant techniques to create novel botulinum toxin-based medicines with different onsets and durations of action, will potentially offer clinicians the flexibility to choose the most appropriate neurotoxin for each patient, which is not an option today,” said Philippe Picaut, Pharm. D., PhD, Senior Vice President Research & Development for the Neuroscie
