US Signal aligns with Cloudflare to provide DDoS protection as part of expanded managed IT services line



US Signal, an end-to-end IT solutions provider, announced that it has partnered with Cloudflare to bring a fully managed and customizable distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection service to market. This service delivers DDoS mitigation for network, transport and application layers, and is fully backed by SLA.

It is powered by Cloudflare’s global Anycast network and implemented by US Signal’s information security and provisioning team, with support and customization from its technical operations engineers.

With DDoS Protection from US Signal, customers get priority routing and dedicated IP addresses on Cloudflare’s network. Alongside unparalleled DDoS protection, US Signal customers achieve performance improvements through Cloudflare’s existing DNS and content delivery network (CDN) architecture while US Signal engineers can leverage other tools such as code minification and image optimization to further improve performance.

US Signal partnered with Cloudflare because of the scale, performance and reliability of Cloudflare’s infrastructure. With over 10 million internet properties on its network, Cloudflare can anticipate and prevent potential DDoS attacks through knowledge sharing and trend analysis. In addition, with over 15Tbps throughput and over 150 data centers in 75 countries, Cloudflare’s network has the resiliency to absorb and dissipate even the largest of DDoS attacks and prevent them from impacting customer websites.

“US Signal’s new DDoS protection service is ideal for companies looking to update their existing DDoS mitigation strategies or for businesses lacking the manpower or skills to manage these risks internally. It is aimed at all market sectors but is particularly beneficial to high-risk areas such as tech, government, finance and healthcare,” said US Signal President Stephen Oyer. “But regardless of the economic sector in which your company operates, Cloudflare’s 15Tbps plus network throughput should offer peace of mind, as it can handle 15 times more traffic than the largest DDoS attack has produced to date.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with US Signal and enabling the company to offer our DDoS mitigation solution as a managed service to its customer base,” said Chris Merritt, chief revenue officer at Cloudflare. “Our layered security approach has already combined multiple DDoS mitigation capabilities into one solution, and it’s a logical next step for US Signal to package it with expert consulting, advisory and implementation skills – and to sell it alongside its existing managed IT and business continuity services.”
