Arbor Cloud DDoS Protection Wins Gold

Fully-Managed Security Services for Multi-Layered DDoS Defense Protection

BURLINGTON, Mass., September 14, 2016 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced today Arbor Cloud DDoS Protection service was the Gold Winner in the Security Services category at the annual Golden Bridge Awards program held earlier this week in San Francisco, Calif.

“We’re grateful that Arbor Cloud was recognized for delivering best practice defense against DDoS attacks,” said Arbor Networks President Brian McCann. “Enterprises are rightly concerned about the availability of their networks, applications and services. With the Arbor Cloud DDoS service, we manage the entire defense for the customer from the data center to the cloud, allowing them to focus on their business while we focus on maintaining availability.”

GOLD WINNER: Arbor Cloud for Security Services

Arbor Cloud provides in-cloud protection from advanced and high-volume distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks without interrupting access to business applications and services. Arbor Cloud’s on-demand, traffic scrubbing service, staffed by Arbor’s DDoS security experts, defends against volumetric DDoS attacks that are too large to be mitigated on-premise. Arbor Cloud’s on-premise component — powered by Arbor Networks® APS — delivers visibility into traffic entering the network, providing always-on DDoS attack detection and mitigation. Unlike other disparate DDoS solutions, the on-premise APS device can “Cloud Signal” the Arbor Cloud to prepare for and begin traffic scrubbing when volumes reach a particular bandwidth threshold. Cloud Signaling significantly reduces the time to mitigate attacks ensuring that you are protected even if your bandwidth becomes fully consumed.

Arbor Cloud also offers complete transparency of operation, including providing a view into blocked hosts and even packets, offering the flexibility enterprises need to alter attack countermeasures and thresholds. Via layered protection, Arbor delivers a comprehensive, industry-leading DDoS protection solution for enterprise networks.
