WESTFORD, Mass. – June 14, 2022 --NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., (NASDAQ: NTCT), a leading provider of cybersecurity, service assurance, and business analytics solutions, today revealed the findings of a commissioned Forrester Consulting Total Economic Impact™ Study that evaluated the cost savings and business benefits for organizations deploying NETSCOUT Omnis AED to protect against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyberattacks. Based on a financial assessment and interviews with four decision-makers that had implemented the solution, Forrester found that over three years Omnis AED provided a composite organization:
