Huawei Signs Memorandum of Understanding with Black Lotus to Provide Enhanced DDoS Protection for the Global Security Service Market

Huawei signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Black Lotus. The partnership will focus on research and development (R&D) in cyber defense technology and marketing. As DDoS attack traffic continues to grow, there has also been an increase in application attacks and cloud-based Cybercrime-as-a-Service (CaaS) has become increasingly prevalent. To help enterprises mitigate this increase in DDoS attacks, the collaboration will combine Huawei's anti-DDoS products and technical expertise with Black Lotus' professional anti-DDoS services. Huawei's anti-DDoS products offer the best performance across the industry and its anti-DDoS solution has a global active botnet database and an IP reputation database, which is important as botnets are the main source of DDoS attacks. Black Lotus will supplement Huawei's solution with advanced DDoS protection service capabilities. Huawei and Black Lotus will work together on a market development plan that will initially focus on Western Europe and expand to other South Pacific and North American markets. The companies are currently working together to expand Black Lotus' Amsterdam scrubbing center capacity to help European ISPs and small and medium-sized enterprises address challenges of increasingly severe DDoS attacks. Black Lotus also plans to establish DDoS scrubbing centers in Australia and other countries across Asia Pacific. In addition, the companies will conduct research and publish a joint report on global DDoS attack trends around new DDoS attacks types as part of the MoU. Together, Huawei and Black Lotus will help enterprises mitigate an increase in DDoS attacks through offering the threat emergency response services.
