The First and Last Line of Smart, Automated, Edge Defense

Omnis AED is an inline security appliance deployed at the network perimeter (i.e. between the internet router and network firewall) to provide security and defense.

AED’s unique position on the network edge, its stateless packet processing engine and the continuous reputation-based threat intelligence it receives from NETSCOUT's Omnis ATLAS Intelligence Feed enable it to automatically detect and stop both inbound threats and outbound communication from internal compromised hosts – essentially acting as the first and last line of defense for organizations.

Network Perimeter Security Benefits

Be a First Line of Defense

by blocking inbound DDoS attacks to protect the availability of your network, services or stateful security devices (e.g. firewall).

Be a Last Line of Defense

by blocking outbound communication from compromised internal devices to attacker command and control (C2) infrastructure to stop the proliferation of attacker and malware within your organizations and ultimately avoid a data breach.

Integrate

Omnis AED’s use of standards such as STIX/TAXII, SYSLOG (CEF, LEEF), a REST API and its ability to provide more context to blocked IoCs via the Omnis ATLAS Intelligence Feed enable it to become a fully integrated component of your existing security stack and process.

Defense at the Network Edge

Deployed in between the firewall and internet router, and using highly scalable stateless packet processing technology, Omnis AED acts as a network edge threat intelligence enforcement point where it blocks in bulk, inbound cyber threats (e.g. DDoS attacks, IOCs) and outbound malicious communication - essentially acting as the first and last line of network perimeter defense for an organization.

How to Block Ransomware from Your Network

Arbor Edge Defense can do more than DDoS mitigation. It can detect and block outbound indicators of compromise (IOCs) that go undetected by other tools in your security stack. For example, AED can detect and block malware known to seed ransomware before the decryption occurs.

Arbor Edge Defense can do more than DDoS mitigation

94% of surveyed IT organizations who selected effectively stopping complex DDoS attacks or effectively stopping state-exhaustion DDoS attacks agree that NETSCOUT Arbor Edge Defense and Arbor Cloud DDoS Protection helps solve cybersecurity challenges by detecting and blocking both inbound and outbound IoCs as well as other cyber threats.
