Broadwing Communications, LLC, a consolidated subsidiary of Broadwing Corp., today announced that it is enhancing its network security offerings with the introduction of a service it says will detect and isolate Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

Using a combination of commercial and proprietary hardware, software and managed solutions, Broadwing says it will be able to respond in real time to DDoS attacks, mitigating attacks at multiple layers and enabling legitimate traffic to continue to reach its destination.

The service is expected to be commercially available in the summer of 2006, with custom DDoS solutions offered in the interim.

“DDoS attacks can be debilitating for businesses,” said Donovan Dillon, vice president of marketing at Broadwing.
