Smarter Visibility and DDoS Defense

Combining core Arbor Networks and NETSCOUT Flow and Smart Data visibility technologies with intelligent analytics, machine learning and automation, Sightline with Sentinel integrates network infrastructure defense functionality and orchestrated mitigation support to deliver unparalleled protection at a lower cost than any other solution.

Using Smart Data, Sightline with Sentinel provides ISPs and large enterprises with a deep understanding of the services their customers use, as well as allows them to detect a broader range of application layer threats, to enable a new breed of visibility and security value-added services.

Sightline with Sentinel understands the capabilities of the routers within a multi-vendor infrastructure and uses these capabilities in combination with Arbor Threat Mitigation System (TMS) to orchestrate the mitigation of any attack, regardless of size and complexity, with detailed reporting provided through a single pane of glass user-interface. An inter-provider signaling function allows network operators to share attack data and proactively coordinate defense against DDoS attacks, stopping them nearer to their source.
