CSPs are increasingly responsible for supporting critical national infrastructure (CNI), facilitating smooth communication for businesses, government branches, and public bodies.
The Telecoms sector’s interconnectedness with other sectors underscores its pivotal role in maintaining a country’s infrastructure. However, this essential service is under siege from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats, including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
The telecommunications industry is at a critical juncture, facing an unprecedented wave of sophisticated DDoS attacks that threaten to disrupt secure and reliable connectivity—a cornerstone of modern civilization. As Communication Service Providers (CSPs) play an increasingly vital role in supporting critical national infrastructure, the need for robust, scalable, and cost-effective DDoS mitigation strategies has never been more urgent. One emerging solution is the hosting of virtual distributed applications directly on routers. This approach offers several advantages that make it particularly well-suited to address the evolving DDoS challenge.
