IHS Infonetics: Global Leader DDoS Prevention Appliances

Arbor Networks Secures Global Leadership Position in the Biannual IHS Infonetics Report on DDoS Prevention Appliances for the Sixth Consecutive Year


BURLINGTON, Mass., July 19, 2016 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), was identified once again as the top supplier of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation appliances overall, as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile market segments, according to a new report from IHS Infonetics Research. This is the sixth consecutive year that Arbor has secured the leadership position in the report.

According to IHS Infonetics, the DDoS threat landscape continues to get more complex and the consequences more severe. The total number of attacks is growing rapidly, application-layer attacks are becoming more common, and even volumetric attacks are evolving. Volumetric attacks are bifurcating into high velocity/bandwidth attacks, and lower bandwidth attacks. This has significance for everyone, particularly large enterprises, mid-sized cloud and hosting providers and smaller telecom providers.

“The introduction of Arbor’s hybrid cloud services, fully managed services, a refreshed on-premises offering, and advanced threat detection and analytics helped it grow its overall business revenue by tapping into fast-growing markets. The transition to subscription revenue is already driving growth and recurring revenue; and the overall business remains quite strong,” said Jeff Wilson, IHS Infonetics senior research director for cybersecurity technology.

“Availability is the lifeblood of business today and our customers count on us to keep their infrastructure up and running. We take that responsibility very seriously and are committed to staying ahead of the attackers by delivering a comprehensive portfolio of DDoS products and services,” said Eric Jackson, Arbor Networks vice president of product management.
