Introduction

Threat mitigation functionality is available as an add-on with Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet (EDI) services. Comcast Threat Management Service™ is a subscription-based offering that proactively detects Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and alerts customers when an attack is under way, and enables the means to mitigate attacks.

If you have a Single-Incident or Multi-Incident Comcast Threat Management Service subscription, you will receive an email and/or SMS alert if a DDoS attack is under way and that you should call Comcast Security Assurance to begin mitigation to thwart the attack. If you have an Unlimited subscription, you will receive an email or SMS notification and mitigation will begin as soon as a detected DDoS attack begins.

During mitigation, Comcast Business diverts traffic directed at the customer's IPs, including DDoS attack traffic, to cloud-based scrubbing centers distributed across the United States. The resulting clean and legitimate traffic is simultaneously forwarded to the network and servers. Comcast Threat Management operates 24x7x365, and helps provide businesses with continued uptime while under a DDoS attack.
