NETSCOUT Threat Intelligence

NETSCOUT has built a world class team of security researchers that are dedicated to discovering and analyzing emerging Internet threats and developing targeted defenses.

ASERT Research

ATLAS Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT) delivers world-class network security research and analysis for the benefit of today’s enterprise and network operators. ASERT engineers and researchers are part of an elite group of institutions that are referred to as ‘super remediators’ and represent the best in information security.

Digital Attack Map

The Digital Attack Map is a live data visualization of DDoS attacks around the globe. This tool surfaces anonymous attack traffic data from NETSCOUT Arbor to let users explore historic trends and find reports of outages happening on a given day.

Annual Security Report

NETSCOUT Arbor's Annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report (WISR) offers direct insights from network and security professionals at the world’s leading service provider, cloud/hosting, and enterprise organizations.

NETSCOUT Arbor has a long history in botnet research and DDoS mitigation. However, as DDoS has moved from just a diversion to be a feature of malware and botnets used in cybercrime and APT attacks, NETSCOUT has expanded Arbor's research team and research capabilities to tackle additional threat types.

What separates NETSCOUT threat intelligence from other vendors is how the team uses its pervasive service provider footprint and critical partnerships to obtain and analyze security events. The rich data that comes from this intelligence is passed on to customers through the ATLAS® Intelligence Feed, giving them both a micro view of their own network combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic; this is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.


NETSCOUT Active Threat Level Analysis System sees more internet traffic, and collects more data on that traffic,  than anybody else. ATLAS monitors over one-third of all internet traffic providing near-real-time visibility into today's threats, fueling NETSCOUT Arbor’s mission to help keep the internet stable and secure.  This dynamic intelligence empowers security and network teams with relevant, actionable threat information on the threats facing them within the connected world. 

Red Sky Alliance

NETSCOUT Arbor is a founding member of the Red Sky® Alliance—a private social network of trusted security experts that collaborate on the identification and neutralization of malware and other advanced threats. As a member, NETSCOUT Arbor has access to more than 23 million PCs being actively monitored for threat intelligence.
