SUPER-NET selects Sandvine to help build self-defending network

Award-wining Sandvine Technology will help MSO defeat worms, denial-of-service attacks from within the broadband network

Massillon, Ohio and Waterloo, Ontario; June 23, 2004 – Sandvine Incorporated today announced that SUPER-NET, the Internet subsidiary of Massillon Cable TV, has selected Sandvine Worm and Denial-of-Service Traffic Mitigation to improve the subscriber experience on its 10,000 homes-passed network.

Worm outbreaks and their associated denial-of-service (DoS) attacks can consume as much as 60 per cent of available bandwidth on a service provider network in a matter of hours. But even discounting the impact of "event-level" attacks by superworms like MyDoom and Netsky, research has shown that malicious traffic caused by remnants of old attacks accounts for between 4- and 12-per-cent of all the data moving across broadband networks on any given day.

Combined, sundry and event-level worm attacks pose significant business challenges to service providers. SUPER-NET has elected to deploy Sandvine’s multi-layer Worm/DoS solution to create a self-defending network capable of defeating worms at each point in their five stage lifecycle, protecting the subscriber experience while controlling the network and customer support costs worms create.

“As the number of high-speed connections grows, so does the effective range and destructive power of Internet worms and DoS attacks,” said David Hoffer, CFO and General Manager of SUPER-NET. “Sandvine’s approach allows us to mitigate malicious traffic from a central point in the network to protect and maximize the quality of our subscribers’ online experience.”
