NEW YORK & ORLANDO, Fla. -- September 24, 2013

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm
of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT) announced that it is
participating as Convention Sponsor at the COMPTEL PLUS Fall 2013 Convention &
EXPO at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Florida, September 23-26. COMPTEL PLUS
is a preeminent networking event produced by COMPTEL, a leading industry
association representing the competitive communications industry and their
supplier partners. As one of the world’s top providers of global IP networking
and protection services against DDoS attacks, NTT Com has unique insight into
how communications service providers can deliver leading-edge network
capabilities in a rapidly-evolving marketplace while keeping their online
assets secure from sophisticated cyber-attacks.

“As the communications industry becomes a more frequent target of DDoS
attacks, NTT Com offers the technology, experience and flexibility that
competitive telecommunications providers need to design and implement a
comprehensive defense strategy,” said Brent Duncan, vice president of sales
and marketing, NTT Com’s Global IP Network at NTT America. “Being offline,
even for a few minutes, could represent for many providers thousands and even
millions of dollars in lost revenues. It is imperative that companies
understand how to respond to attacks immediately and have a reliable partner
to work with,” Mr. Duncan added.

NTT Com is also participating in COMPTEL PLUS educational sessions that
include discussions of the business, policy and technology trends shaping
today’s communications industry. Teri Francis, Vice President of Customer
Solutions, NTT Com’s Global IP Network at NTT America, will join industry
leaders on the panel “Cyber Attacks: Implementing a Successful Counter Plan”
on Tuesday, September 24^th, at 2.30 p.m. During the panel, Ms. Francis will
address how businesses and organizations can avoid downtime and defend their
networks, brands and reputation from DDoS attacks. As experts agree that there
is no single defense strategy to successfully defeat today’s sophisticated and
evolving threats, Ms. Francis will discuss the layered defense approach that
combines traditional security measures, intelligent DDoS mitigation systems
and sound risk management strategies.

To counter the growing frequency and complexity of DDoS attacks, NTT Com
offers a state-of-the-art DDoS Protection Service (DPS) built on
industry-leading DDoS mitigation platforms and 24x7 expert monitoring
services, provided via its tier-1 Global IP Network. With a combination of
best-of-breed tools and in-depth security expertise, NTT Com helps businesses
and organizations combat and mitigate attacks, ensuring customers stay online
and open for business.
