The Netscout Arbor Sightline solution will be used to help detect and mitigate DDoS attacks.

STC Business has partnered with Netscout to provide Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection to STC's business service customers.

The Saudi telco will deploy Netscout's Arbor Sightline solution which provides comprehensive network visibility and reporting capabilities to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks.

"Cyber resilience is critical in the age of IoT, Cloud, Digital Economies and increasing Digital Transformation," said Yasser Alswailem, general manager Cyber Security for STC.

"DDoS' frequency, scale, and accuracy are reason why many hackers choose it for their attacks against a target. As a result of our expanded Netscout deployment, we can perform mitigation in a larger and more automated way that is simpler and faster."

"Through proactive monitoring, customers who subscribe to DDoS Protection service are protected from such attacks and provided with clean Internet in a manner where only malicious traffic is intercepted and handled, so as to maintain business continuity and resiliency," commented Fahad Aljutaily, VP Cyber Security for STC Solutions, the delivery arm of STC Business.

"Cloud-hosted and offered as a managed service, the service does not require the installation of any special equipment at the customer premises, although appliances are available for multi-layered protection should clients prefer this kind of setup. The service is offered on a monthly basis, with no upfront or capital expenditure costs, allowing companies to shift to an OPEX based model, thereby have more control and predictability over their IT costs," added Aljutaily.
