Troy Cablevision selects Sandvine to defend against worm and denial of service (DoS) attacks

Technology will help cable broadband provider create self-defending network

SUPERCOMM 2004; June 22, 2004 – Sandvine Incorporated today announced that Troy Cablevision has selected Sandvine’s Worm/DoS Traffic Mitigation (WDTM) solution to proactively cleanse their 4,000 broadband subscriber network of malicious traffic.

Worms are costing Internet service providers an estimated $245 million a year as unplanned equipment expenditures, hemorrhaging customer support costs and inflated transit fees eat away at bottom-lines all around the world. Residential subscribers, now the least secure point on any network, are increasingly targeted by distributors of malicious code. The onus has fallen on service providers to combat the flood of malicious traffic that is threatening profit margins and harming the subscriber experience.

Troy has elected to deploy Sandvine’s multi-layer Worm/DoS solution to create a self-defending network, capable of defeating worm traffic at all five stages of its life cycle. The net result: protected subscribers and prevented costs.

“As traditional forms of mitigation are being circumvented, subscribers are looking to service providers to actively address the malicious traffic that threatens them,” said Dick Freeman,  CEO of Troy Cablevision. “We are more than willing to defend our subscribers in this regard, and the Sandvine solution gives us the capability to mitigate the malicious traffic in our network before it can reach subscribers. ”
