2016 Info Security Products Guide’s Awards

Recognized for Innovation in Enterprise Security and Cloud Security Services

BURLINGTON, Mass., March 3, 2016 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Arbor Networks a winner of four of its Global Excellence Awards. The annual awards program recognizes security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions in all areas of the security and technology industries.

“The awards recognize Arbor’s strong focus on innovation across our entire business. We’re especially pleased to be recognized for innovation in DDoS, where we’ve long been a market leader, as well as the broader enterprise security market where we’re very focused on enabling defenders with innovative solutions like Arbor Networks Spectrum™ that speeds threat investigations,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.

Gold Award – Best Security Hardware for Arbor Availability Protection System

The Arbor Availability Protection System (APS) is the first on-premise security product focused on securing the network perimeter from threats against availability – specifically, application-layer distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Purpose-built for the enterprise, Arbor APS delivers out-of-the-box, proven attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be deployed with little configuration, even during an attack.

Silver Award – Most Innovative Security Service of the Year for Arbor Cloud

With Arbor Cloud, enterprises can deploy best-practices defense in a single solution, with integrated multi-layered protection from on-premise to the cloud. Arbor Cloud helps protect enterprises against a spectrum of DDoS attacks, including volumetric, application-layer, state-exhaustion (e.g., targeting firewall/IPS), blended and multi-vector DDoS attacks.

Bronze Award – Innovation in Enterprise Security

Arbor gives organizations a highly-detailed view of the attacks in any captured network traffic. It allows security teams to analyze data in real-time. Powerful visualizations display data from multiple perspectives (attacker, target, location or attack type), enabling security analysts to quickly assess the security posture of the organization. Once an indicator of compromise has been identified, Arbor provides the analyst with actionable intelligence, allowing for confirmation of the details and the extent of the attack.

Bronze Award – Best Overall Security Company of the Year

What separates Arbor Networks from other security vendors is how the company leverages its service provider footprint to benefit all customers. Arbor’s Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS®), is a collaborative project with more than 330 service provider customers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data totaling 130Tbps. ATLAS is the world’s largest globally-scoped threat analysis system. From this unique vantage point, Arbor is ideally positioned to deliver intelligence about DDoS, advanced threats, malware and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and network availability. Arbor customers enjoy a considerable competitive advantage through a unique combination of a micro view of their own network traffic combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic. This is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.
