NeuStar, Inc. Key Developments

Neustar, Inc. Launches IP Reputation Solution for Online Fraud Prevention

NeuStar, Inc. announced the availability of IP Reputation (IPR), a new solution for customers to reduce and prevent online fraud that collectively costs organizations billions of dollars each year. This solution offers authoritative risk assessment across various aspects of fraud including online transaction, registration, ad-click and bad traffic from malicious activities. It serves as a first line of defense for businesses to differentiate real end-user traffic from nonhuman traffic to monitor and mitigate fraudulent activity at the beginning stages of the fraud risk assessment process in a cost effective manner. Online fraud is a growing concern to businesses worldwide, and is complicated by the prevalence of unauthenticated users on the web. To protect brands from malicious actors, the Neustar IP Reputation solution produces both a Real User Score and a Risk Score. The Real User Score assigns Internet Protocol addresses into one of five risk categories using Neustar's IP Intelligence datasets and predictive analytics technology to distinguish human from nonhuman elements and evaluate the relative risk associated with an IP address. The Risk Score extends the Real User Score to include advanced risk analytics derived from modeling usage of IP addresses and fraudulent activity from other IP threat intelligence sources. Both scores are built on the foundation of the Neustar IP Intelligence GeoPoint data source for accurate and reliable global IP data, which is combined with other risk signals to provide IP based risk assessments. IPR notes IP address usage patterns and builds risk evaluation profiles. Neustar's advanced datasets are corroborated by 3.5 billion queries a day across nine different market segments including ecommerce, financial services, advertising, gaming and video streaming.

Neustar, Inc. to Build Multiple Tbps DDoS Mitigation Platform to Protect Customers from Attacks and Optimize Digital Experiences

NeuStar, Inc. announced that it is expanding its cloud-based mitigation platform and delivering new services to provide customers greater protection from malicious, constantly evolving DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks. The increased investment demonstrates Neustar's commitment to securing its customers' online infrastructure. In light of these growing DDoS attacks, Neustar plans an expansion to more than 1 Terabit per second (Tbps) by first quarter of 2015 with plans for further significant expansion into 2016. The new platform will deliver a comprehensive and diverse DDoS mitigation solution to the market and gives Neustar the bandwidth and scrubbing capacity to detect and remove massive amounts of malicious attack traffic. Neustar also launched two new services to expand its DDoS mitigation solutions to fit the needs of all organizations: Secondary DDoS Protection and Remote Management. The Secondary DDoS Protection service provides a failover or back up for times when a primary provider cannot handle attack traffic. The Remote Management service enables Neustar's Security Operation Center experts to "take over" management of in-house DDoS appliances, removing the burden of security from the customer and enabling the team of experts to focus on protection and performance. By adding these services to the existing on-demand, cloud mitigation and fully managed hybrid service, Neustar provides one of the most comprehensive and flexible DDoS mitigation solutions in the market.

Neustar Announces Executive Appointments

Neustar, Inc. announced the addition of digital and brand experts to its executive ranks, underscoring the company's commitment to digital. Todd Wilms, Neustar's new vice president, digital, and Angela Culver, the new vice president, brand, join CMO, Lisa Joy Rosner, to help Neustar reach marketing, security and operations leaders. A widely recognized brand evangelist and social media leader, Todd Wilms will drive the vision and strategy for all Neustar's internal and external communications.

A marketing executive with the rare combination of data analytics, security and telecommunications experience, Angela Culver will manage and grow the brand, creative services, web, events and international marketing teams. Culver joins Neustar from ACLynn.
