Steve Kennet, Director of Security at JISC explained:

A quality digital education starts with the availability of our Janet Network and related applications and services. It is as fundamental to us as electricity. That’s why we decided to be proactive about our DDoS defense by partnering with Arbor Networks, the industry leader.
