Network security

Security lies at the heart of any premium network solution and as such, it is one of the most important network selection criteria for businesses.

Multi-layered network protection

In an increasingly uncertain world it is an essential part of all network planning, to protect against cyber attacks and other threats that are becoming increasingly sophisticated and destructive.

According to our 2021 survey, almost half (45%) of business leaders claim that their company has experienced more network security incidents as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Geographically speaking, 55% of US and 49% of UK respondents experienced the most severe impact on their network security from these attacks which, in turn, has resulted in a clear majority of respondents (60%) increasing their investment in this area.

Our solutions

Arelion provides different levels of security with a multi-layered approach, using built-in security, monitoring and proactive detection.

Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation is major concern for Enterprises whose goal is to avoid and stop a DDoS attack before it disrupts their business and operation. As a global Tier 1 provider, Arelion takes on this challenge already within our nternational IP backbone. Our platform proactively manages terabit-scale attacks before they even reach our customers.

In 2019, Arelion announced the implementation of RPKI – a technology that validates and secures critical route updates or BGP announcements on our #1 ranked global Internet backbone. Read more about what is RPKI.

Arelion Ethernet services meet very strict security and compliance requirements and are MEF 3.0 certified. Read more: Ethernet for private network connectivity with bandwidths from 10Mbps to 40 Gbp.

Wavelengths for high data volumes up to 400GE. A dual-link service option provides two fully diverse routes between the same end points and offers the highest level of security and availability of critical data transfer.
