Neustar Security Services, a leading provider of cloud-delivered solutions, recently announced that it will launch DDOS mitigation and application security data centre in Dubai in October.

Neustar Security Services’ expansion into the Middle East satisfies a rising need for a local security presence that can guarantee data sovereignty and low latency performance for clients in the area. The addition of the Dubai node further demonstrates the organization’s dedication to making ongoing investments in its ultra-secure infrastructure, enabling Neustar Security Services to maintain the largest and best-connected distributed denial of service (DDoS) and application security network in the world.

Neustar Security Services’ most recent growth is a natural extension of its continued dedication to enhancing the Ultra Secure line of products. The company has invested resources in re-architecting its infrastructure for more than five years, greatly increasing network capacity and performance for DNS and DDoS services. In order to meet the growing need for application security, it has integrated new options for cloud WAF and bot control into its Ultra Secure family of services.

Carlos Morales, Senior Vice President, Solutions, at Neustar Security Services, said, “As a thriving financial and commercial hub, Dubai is home to many new and expanded businesses which have contributed to heightened demand for local security that can ensure data remains safely within the region. By deploying this new state-of-the-art data centre, Neustar Security Services will provide low latency access to cutting-edge solutions and features that address a host of risks in today’s complex and ever-evolving threat environment.”

The Dubai node boosts Neustar Security Services’ DDoS cleaning capability, which is already at 12+ Tbps globally. With the help of the new data centre, customers in the Middle East will have access to local, end-to-end defence against the most frequent threats to web-based infrastructure and services, including as the OWASP top 10 threats, volumetric DDoS, and application-level DDoS attacks.

Colin Doherty, CEO of Neustar Security Services, said, “Our new Dubai node is just the latest in a series of significant investments in scaling our global cloud capacity and capability. We look forward to continuing to demonstrate our commitment to customers and partners around the world in delivering the industry’s premier cloud security service.”
