Level 3 Communications introduced a suite of layered security solutions matched with its advanced network services, including its global IP network, domain naming system (DNS) caching servers and content delivery network (CDN). The new capabilities include:

  • ·Level 3 Secure Access Services, Managed Security Services, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation and Security Consulting Services.
  • Vulnerability scanning, DDoS blocking and cleansing, proactive alerts, incident reporting, site-to-site remote user access, content filtering, anti-virus, anti-spam, and firewall and intrusion prevention.
  • Customer ability to receive network access and protection from a single provider, simplifying the operational complexity inherent to internal network security management.
  • 24x7x365 access to dedicated, skilled security professionals coordinated from four redundant security operation centers (SOCs).
Level 3 is introducing a new standard of security, with a multi-layered portfolio of protection for customers that we believe is unparalleled in the industry,” said Anthony Christie, Level 3’s chief marketing officer. “Our protection covers our customers from the earth to the cloud, integrating seamlessly across our broad range of advanced network services. It combines a number of layers of increasingly sophisticated protection from the ground up, beginning with the way our network was designed and constructed in the ground, with diverse routes and other structural protection. Additionally, our integrated CDN and network infrastructure, firewalls and capabilities are combined with redundant layers of advanced, proprietary protocols and algorithms that extend to the cloud.”
