RE: UUNet Offer New Protection Against DDoS

No, but it sounds like SLA payouts are made in the event that they fail
to respond in 15 minutes after a call is made. Maybe I am
misinterpreting their SLA, but this seems much different then offering
blanket payments for DoS down time.

I will give them credit for guaranteeing a response in 15 minutes or
less. Now is a response the opening of a ticket or the null routing of
the attack traffic in 15 minutes?
