MCI guarantees against DoS attacks

MCI has introduced the industry’s first denial-of-service (DoS) service-level agreement (SLA) to help internet customers to improve their defence against internet threats and attacks.

The SLA aims to ensure that all MCI internet customers will have immediate access to MCI’s security staff to help them address and mitigate internet attacks quickly, providing the strongest network security protection available.

“MCI’s experience operating IP networks, along with its advanced network monitoring and management capabilities, enable the company to provide the strongest security defence for our customers,” said Sara Santarelli, MCI vice-president of network security.
