The Telecommunications and Information Technology Center of the Generalitat de Catalunya (CTTI) selected Allot Communications to protect Catalonia’s elections from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber-attacks. The election was held in September 2015.
CTTI is a public entity created to integrate all of Catalonia’s computing and telecommunication services under a single structure. CTTI is responsible for leading the direction, planning, management and control of all the computing systems and the telecommunication services of Generalitat de Catalunya.
As the organization managing the IT operations for the September election, CTTI deployed Allot ServiceProtector as a service, a solution designed to detect and block DDoS attacks within seconds, before they have the potential to threaten or interrupt a network service.
CTTI has been an Allot customer since 2009, first leveraging Allot Service Gateway to obtain network usage insights to deliver high quality of service (QoS) to various public administration agencies.
“Allot worked closely with CTTI to deploy an automated and robust security solution scalable enough to stop even the largest DDoS attacks,” said Gary Drutin, Chief Customer Officer, Allot Communications.
“By inspecting 100 percent of the network traffic and surgically mitigating threats, Allot was able to ensure that the Catalonian elections could operate smoothly and without network disruption.”
