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.

In our latest DDoS report, we observe emerging DDoS trends, attack traffic development, shifting attack vectors and ever more nation-state activity - using fresh data from our #1 ranked global Internet backbone, AS1299.

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 International IP backbone. Our platform proactively manages terabit-scale attacks before they even reach our customers. Learn more about what a DDoS attack is, how to recognize DDoS attacks and how to stop them.

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.
