ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF)

Unparalleled Insight and Expert Analysis

Arbor has built a world-class team of security researchers that are dedicated to discovering and analyzing emerging Internet threats and developing targeted defenses.

ATLAS Intelligence Feed Benefits Across the Ecosystem

With ATLAS, ASERT and the ATLAS Intelligence Feed, Arbor delivers unparalleled visibility into the backbone networks that form the Internet’s core down to the local networks in today’s enterprise.

Service providers can leverage ATLAS intelligence to make timely and informed decisions about their network security, service creation, market analysis, capacity planning, application trends, transit and peering relationships and potential content partner relationships.

Enterprise security teams can leverage the global threat intelligence of the ATLAS data to stay ahead of advanced threats and save significant time by eliminating the need to manually update the latest attack detection signatures. This unique feed includes geo-location data and automates the identification of attacks against infrastructure and services from known botnets and malware while ensuring that updates for new threats are automatically delivered without software upgrades.

Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT)

ASERT delivers world-class network security research and analysis for the benefit of today’s enterprise and network operators. ASERT engineers and researchers are part of an elite group of institutions that are referred to as ‘super remediators’ and represent the best in information security. ASERT has both visibility and remediation capabilities at nearly every tier one operator and a majority of service provider networks globally. ASERT shares operationally viable intelligence with hundreds of international Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) and with thousands of network operators via in-band security content feeds. ASERT also operates the world’s largest distributed honeynet, actively monitoring Internet threats around the clock and around the globe via ATLAS.

  • Dynamic Updates for Accurate Protection
    The AIF is updated with the latest threat information to maintain the most accurate detection policies across all Arbor Networks products.

  • Campaign-Based Attack Identification
    By combining attack data from multiple sources and focusing on malware characteristics, AIF identifies not only singular points of compromise, but related attacks as part of a campaign.

  • Fast Attack Response
    The AIF policies provide valuable context to each attack, enabling a faster, more informed response.

  • Threat Validity and Prioritization
    In addition, to collecting and analyzing threat data, ASERT goes a step further to validate that threats are both real and current.

ATLAS Intelligence Feed for Arbor Sightline & Threat Mitigation System

The AIF from Arbor empowers users with policies and countermeasures to address attacks as part of an advanced threat or DDoS attack. The information provided helps ensure that large networks and peering environments are able to detect and protect against the latest threats that enter or leave their networks. The AIF is a service of the Arbor Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT), and was designed for the largest networks to benefits from the depth and breadth of Arbor’s research.
