Arbor Networks Security Analytics Solution Named Best Cyber Security Product at 2015 Risk Management Awards

BURLINGTON, Mass., November 17, 2015 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced today that its Security Analytics solution won Best Cyber Security Product at the 2015 Risk Management Awards in London.

The Risk Management Awards are sponsored by CIR Magazine and recognize those individuals, organizations and teams that have significantly added to the understanding and practice of risk management. Judged by an independent panel of experts for exceptional performance, the awards provide an opportunity for organizations and individuals to showcase their best products, projects and people.

“We’ve entered a new era of highly orchestrated attacks. It’s no longer just about dangerous malware getting inside the network. It’s about highly skilled attackers getting in through seemingly legitimate means, stolen credentials for example. Arbor’s advanced threat solutions are focused on enabling security teams to identify the most serious threat actors hidden in their environment, faster than ever before. We do this through a combination of extreme visibility, targeted threat intelligence and powerful workflows and data visualizations. Reducing risk in the current threat environment is all about identifying and stopping the most critical threats before they become breaches,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.

Arbor Networks Security Analytics

Arbor recognizes that targeted attacks against today’s enterprises are rarely a singular event, but instead a long running orchestrated campaign that starts with a simple compromise and escalates into a larger incident involving unauthorized access and data theft. Arbor Networks Security Analytics swiftly mines terabytes of data from the richest source of network information – full packet captures – to identify activity that indicates the system has been compromised. Powerful visualizations display the data from multiple perspectives, enabling the analyst to quickly compare attack statistics from different time periods or geographic locations, over years or terabytes of traffic.

This unprecedented view enables organizations to better protect against advanced threats by assessing their security posture at a glance, and displaying attack trends and severity across long time periods. Once an indicator of compromise has been identified, Arbor’s Security Analytics solution provides actionable intelligence, allowing confirmation of the exact details and extent of the attack. Furthermore, the solution provides a look back in time, re-evaluating existing data with new attack information to ensure a complete picture of compromise. By monitoring network activity in real-time, organizations can quickly identify attackers and track their lateral movements within the network, showing definitively when and how long an attack occurred, as well as what systems were impacted.
