Arbor Cloud DDoS Defense Recognized as “Managed Security Solution of the Year” by Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards

BURLINGTON, MA., Sept. 13, 2017 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced today Arbor Cloud has been selected as the winner of the “Managed Security Solution of the Year” award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the information security industry.

“Arbor Cloud represents the best in Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) protection. There are three critical components, the underlying automated technology with real-time intelligence updates, the multi-terabit network dedicated exclusively to DDoS mitigation, and most importantly, the people behind the service who are tireless and dedicated to producing successful outcomes for customers,” said Brian McCann, President of NETSCOUT’s security business unit. 

“Arbor Networks was a pioneering leader in the DDoS mitigation market and they continue to innovate and drive more value for their customers through their Arbor Cloud managed service,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Arbor Cloud is ideal for businesses that realize they need DDoS protection, but may not have the resources or personnel to manage the solution themselves.”
