Over the past 20 years, DDoS attacks have always been part of the threat landscape, but their frequency, scale and sophistication continue to increase. Plusnet, which serves 200 cities and regions of Germany, previously relied on an in-house data filtering solution to analyze anomalies in traffic patterns. However, this in-house solution required manual intervention, which was neither practical nor effective as the attacks escalated and evolved. Plusnet needed to automate DDoS attack mitigation with effective, dynamic, and scalable protection to defend its nationwide network from attack-induced outages.
“During the testing phase of the Juniper-Corero solution, we could immediately see a manageable flow of DDoS attacks. With the Juniper-Corero solution, Plusnet is able to further improve network protection without any significant impact on network performance,” said Ralph Webermanager of the network and security competence center, Plusnet.

- Plusnet has taken an active approach to thwarting DDoS attacks with Juniper Networks and Corero Joint DDoS Protectionproviding real-time detection and line-rate mitigation of DDoS attacks, which is able to identify and block very large attacks in seconds.
- Juniper Networks® MX Series Universal Routing Platforms work with Corero SmartWall Threat Defense Director to quickly identify, accurately detect, and automate attack mitigation. Continuous analysis and monitoring provides complete visibility into data patterns and anomalies for network security professionals.
- As DDoS attacks continue to increase, the protection capability provided by this solution can be extended to tens of terabits per second.
