  • DDoS Protection, Powered by Proven Technology
    Easy to install, configure and use, APS provides automated DDoS attack protection using technology that has been deployed in the world’s most demanding networks for the last 15 yrs – allowing your already stressed security teams to focus on other problems.

  • Always-On DDoS Protection
    On-premise, in-line, automated protection against volumetric, TCP state-exhaustion, application-layer IPV4 and IPV6 DDoS attacks and other advanced threats. APS also detects and stops outbound communication such as CnC exposing malware that is lurking inside your organization.

  • Intelligently Integrated On-Premise and Cloud-Based DDoS Protection
    A DDoS attack only needs to be as large as your internet circuit to make on-premise DDoS protection useless. Via a powerful feature called Cloud Signaling, the APS can intelligently and automatically reroute attack traffic and local APS protections (i.e. policies, white/black/GEO IP lists etc.) to an upstream Arbor Cloud DDoS scrubbing facility (or your ISP who may be running Arbor products) to stop large attacks that will overwhelm your on-premises protection.

  • Managed Arbor (mAPS) Service
    Arbor APS is the industry's leading on-premise DDoS protection product. With the Managed APS (mAPS) Service, you can rely upon the industry leading expertise of Arbor to manage your on-premises APS device and optimize your DDoS protection.
