Businesses hit with a DDoS attack face a number of issues: Loss of revenue, productivity and intellectual property as well as brand and reputation damage.

By integrating technologies from three major threat mitigation experts—including Arbor Networks, Palo Alto Networks and Radware—Hawaiian Telcom’s Secure Internet Protection detects DDoS attacks, viruses, malware and other network-based intrusions and quickly diverts the threat away from an organization’s network before it can cause harm or disruption.

As cloud-based solution, Secure Internet Protection includes 24x7x365 network monitoring and reports that provide visibility into network traffic. Additionally, the solution can also help businesses achieve regulatory compliance including standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, International Organization for Standardization, Health Insurance Portability Act and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

One of the core elements of Hawaiian Telcom’s security service is that it is cloud-based, meaning that a business does not have to dedicate capital resources to premises-based equipment and ongoing maintenance cycles.

“Our solution is cloud-based so there’s no equipment to install and continuously upgrade, enabling businesses of all sizes to reduce their exposure to cybersecurity risks without driving up IT costs,” said Paul Krueger, VP of business sales and product marketing, for Hawaiian Telcom, in a release.
