Windstream introduces distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation service to help customers protect their network and maximize uptime
DDoS attacks are disruptive and can easily make an organization’s internet circuit unavailable, impact their business and potentially put them in non-compliance with industry regulation. Windstream’s DDoS Mitigation Service uses a network of highly scalable scrubbing centers that ingest and inspect attack traffic upstream from the customer’s network. Keeping attacks at a distance helps insulate a company’s network while ensuring that customer traffic is uninterrupted.
“Windstream’s DDoS Mitigation Service protects customers from a rising trend of crippling DDoS attacks that have become easier to execute,” said

Customers benefit from proactive monitoring to quickly verify an attack and rapidly begin mitigation. Additionally, auto-mitigation is an available option on Windstream’s DDoS Mitigation Service, which makes it well-equipped to handle short “hit-and-run” attacks that can wreak havoc on a network.
“Protection against DDoS attacks is critical as companies look for ways to secure their network and maintain uptime,” said
Windstream’s DDoS Mitigation Service is supported by a powerful backbone across distributed data centers. These centers support the mitigation of amplification and application layer attacks with the support of a dedicated 24x7
