NTT America Delivers Industry-Leading Global IP Access, Cyber Protection to Communications Providers14:13 EDT Monday, March 11, 2013 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and a global IP network services provider, today announced its participation as a Gold Sponsor at the COMPTEL PLUS Spring 2013 Convention & EXPO at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As one of the world's top providers of global IP networking, enterprise hosting and managed network services, NTT America has unique insight into how communications service providers can deliver leading-edge network capabilities while strengthening their competitive position in an ever evolving marketplace. “As the communications industry transitions to innovative technologies and embraces new services, NTT America offers the infrastructure, experience and flexibility that competitive telecommunications providers need to adapt and grow,” said Brent Duncan, vice president of sales and marketing, NTT Communications Global IP Network at NTT America. “From a global Tier-1 IP backbone to state-of-the-art protection against DDoS attacks, we enable companies to provide the best service possible to their customers,” Mr. Duncan added. NTT America will also participate 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, will join industry leaders on the panel “Cyber Combat: Tools and Tactics for Preventing Attacks” on Tuesday, March 12th at 10:15 a.m. During the panel, Ms. Francis will address how businesses and organizations can avoid downtime and defend their brand and reputation from DDoS attacks. As experts agree that there is no single defense strategy to successfully defend against today's sophisticated and evolving DDoS attacks, Ms. Francis will discuss the layered defense approach that combines traditional security measures, intelligent DDoS mitigation systems and sound risk management strategies.
