Neustar Professional Services

The expertise to protect your online presence.

 

We Offer:

  • Top-notch engineering expertise
  • Team of experts with an average of 16 years of industry experience
  • “If you have It — We have seen it”
  • Consultative and neutral approach

If your IT department is strapped for time, budget or specialized expertise, Neustar’s highly experienced professional services team is here to help you understand and meet your toughest challenges.

Today, your business’ success depends on a reliable and secure web infrastructure. You can’t afford security gaps, downtime or slow speeds. At the same time, you may not have the budget for full-time staff who are knowledgeable in current DNS management, DDoS protection or application performance. If that’s the case, our professional services team is the answer.

As our client, you’ll have direct access to a lead engineer as your primary point of contact. He or she is backed by a team of problem-solvers with an average of 16 years of industry experience and four years of Neustar tenure. Each expert is a seasoned and skilled practitioner of the Neustar Lifecycle Services framework:

Vulnerability assessment — Let us help you validate the reliability and security of your network infrastructure.

Penetration testing — Our experts will use the same sophisticated tools and tactics as cyber criminals to attempt to exploit your applications and network infrastructure. This will ensure your business is ready for future threats and attacks.
