CHICAGO -- Service providers have a new weapon in the battle against worm attacks and their lightning-fast proliferation on broadband networks.

Today at SUPERCOMM 2004, Sandvine announced the launch of its Worm and Denial-Of-Service Traffic Mitigation (WDTM) solution for broadband service providers. In addition to dramatically reducing the network impact of peer-to-peer file sharing, Sandvine's platform can now monitor peer-to-peer and all other Internet traffic for "wormsign," neutralizing malicious code in transit before it slows network performance.

"The emergence of hyper-powered worms like Netsky and MyDoom have created an urgent need for equally powerful network-based responses," said Tom Donnelly, co-founder and VP, marketing and sales for Sandvine. "The latest research shows that file-sharing networks have become favored vectors for worm infection. By adding worm mitigation to P2P Policy Management, Sandvine is helping broadband providers minimize the impact of attacks; protect the consistency of their network performance and insure the broadband experience for their subscribers."
