Level 3 logo (2)BROOMFIELD - Level 3 Communications Inc. (NYSE: LVLT) said it is introducing a new tool for enterprises looking to better safeguard their critical data and systems in an age of increasing cyber insecurity.

Level 3 said the product, Level 3 DDoS Mitigation service, provides protection closer to the network edge, saving customers time and money in the face of a cyber attack.

"Level 3 has continued to listen to our customers to help them securely grow their business and provide solutions that help them efficiently solve the challenges they face today," said Anthony Christie, Level 3's chief marketing officer.

"This announcement underscores not only our customer commitment but also our ability to change the way enterprises think about security, offering them a new layer of protection."

The company said the combination of its expansive network - which provides extensive attack traffic visibility - and the service's ability to work on both Level 3 and on third-party networks provides a clear differentiator in the marketplace.

"Throughout my tenure in the cybersecurity business, I have never seen such an accelerated and sophisticated cyber threat landscape, and attacks will only continue to grow in frequency, size and complexity," said Chris Richter, Level 3's senior VP of managed security services.

"Level 3 has leveraged its global network infrastructure and managed security services with leading detection and mitigation technologies to provide our customers with a truly advanced layer of defense against these evolving exploits."
