BURLINGTON, MA., October 18, 2017 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced today that the Arbor Cloud DDoS managed service was named Best Enterprise Security Solution at the prestigious 2017 Computing Security Awards held last week in London. This is the third major industry award recognizing Arbor Cloud for excellence in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection in the past four weeks. Arbor Cloud was also named Best Cloud Product at the Cloud Excellence Awards sponsored by Computing Magazine, and Best Managed Service at the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards.
“Once again this is tremendous recognition for the DDoS managed service that Arbor has built. The volume and sophistication of DDoS attacks continues to increase, and for many businesses, a managed service is their best option. With Arbor Cloud, smaller organizations can be protected by the same technology and people that defend the world’s largest organizations. Our message is, you don’t have to compromise any longer on something as important as the availability of your business,” said Theresa Abbamondi, Arbor Networks Director of Product Management for Arbor Cloud & Services.
Arbor Cloud: Affordable, Fully Managed DDoS Protection
Arbor Cloud offers enterprise customers’ affordable, fully managed DDoS protection powered by the industry’s leading technology and backed by its most experienced incident responders. Arbor Cloud can be deployed as cloud only, hybrid - where the customer manages the on-premise solution - or fully managed, with Arbor handling all aspects of a best practice multi-layered defense.
Arbor Networks® APS can be deployed as an appliance or virtual solution, delivering visibility into traffic entering the network, providing always-on DDoS attack detection and mitigation up to 40Gbps. Arbor’s patented Cloud Signaling capability tightly integrates this on-premise protection with cloud-based defenses, automating a key component of DDoS defense and significantly reducing the time needed to mitigate attacks. This hybrid, multi-layer defense is an industry best practice for DDoS protection services, ensuring that enterprise networks are protected no matter what type of advanced DDoS attack they are facing.
Why Does Arbor Cloud Keep Winning Awards?
Industry Leading Scale: Arbor Cloud has 4Tbps of mitigation capacity dedicated to DDoS protection. By distributing capacity globally, attacks can be mitigated more quickly and closer to the source. This distributed model enables customer traffic to stay in-region and, in some cases, in-country. Not only does this allow for quicker remediation, it provides additional value by addressing emerging data privacy considerations on cloud service providers.
Automated Threat Intelligence: Arbor APS is enhanced by threat intelligence via the ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF). Developed by Arbor’s Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT), the AIF includes geo-location data and automates the identification of attacks from known botnets and malware while ensuring that updates for new threats are automatically delivered without intrusive software upgrades. Working in unison with the AIF, Arbor APS can also block outbound threats, helping prevent data exfiltration.
Custom Workflows: The Arbor Cloud team takes the time to understand customer processes and has the flexibility to work within them. With many vendors, even good ones, it’s their way or no way.
Customer-focused Reporting: Arbor Cloud also offers complete transparency of operations, including a view into blocked hosts and even packets, offering the flexibility enterprises need to alter attack countermeasures and thresholds. Arbor takes a proactive, consultative approach that leverages global threat intelligence as the basis for recommendations to improve customer’s security posture, and supplies executive-level reporting that demonstrates ROI and key metrics for the C-suite.
