Huawei announced its association with Black Lotus, a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection service provider, to focus on research and development in cyber defense technology and marketing.
Black Lotus and Huawei will initially focus on Western Europe and expand to other South Pacific and North American markets.
The companies will expand Black Lotus’ Amsterdam scrubbing center capacity to help European ISPs and small and medium-sized enterprises address challenges of DDoS attacks.
Black Lotus plans to set up DDoS scrubbing centers in Australia and other countries in Asia Pacific.
Huawei and Black Lotus will help enterprises mitigate an increase in DDoS attacks through offering threat emergency response services.
“Huawei offers security products and solutions that have been deployed by mega Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) such as Tencent and Alibaba in China and the Netherlands’ national Internet Service Provider (ISP) NBIP,” said Liu Lizhu, vice president, Switch & Enterprise Communications Product Line, Huawei.
Forbes China report published in November 2014 says DDoS attacks reached 500 Gbps per second. To help enterprises mitigate this increase in DDoS attacks, the collaboration will combine Huawei’s anti-DDoS products and expertise with Black Lotus’ professional anti-DDoS services.
