NETSCOUT AED

Arbor Edge Defense: First and Last Line of Smart, Automated, Perimeter Defense

NETSCOUT AED (Arbor Edge Defense)

NETSCOUT AED acts as a network perimeter enforcement point where it detects and blocks in bulk, inbound cyber threats, and outbound malicious communication - essentially acting as the first and last line of perimeter defense for an organization.

Benefits of NETSCOUT AED

  • First Line of Defense: Deployed at the network perimeter, using stateless technology and armed with millions of IoCs, NETSCOUT AED detects and blocks inbound commodity cyber threats thus taking pressure off of stateful devices such as Next Gen Firewalls.
  • Last Line of Defense: Missed by existing security stack, NETSCOUT AED can detect and block outbound communication to known bad IP addresses, domains, URLs, geographies; thus helping stop the further proliferation of malware with an organization and avoid a data breach.
  • Contextual Threat Intelligence: When an IOC is blocked, NETSCOUT AED leverages the global threat intelligence of NETSCOUT ATLAS to provide more context related to the IOC thus helping security teams determine risk and/or give them more information to proactively hunt using their other security tools.
  • Best of Breed DDoS Protection: NETSCOUT AED can automatically detect and stop inbound application layer, TCP-state exhaustion and DDoS attacks as large as 40 Gbps. In the event of even larger DDoS attacks, Cloud Signaling automatically reroutes traffic to Arbor Cloud or a MSSP’s cloud-based mitigation center.
  • Integration: NETSCOUT AED’s robust REST API, support for STIX/TAXII enable NETSCOUT AED to integrate into existing security stack and processes.
  • SDN/NFV Ready: NETSCOUT AED can integrate with OpenStack, Heat, Tacker, Ansible, Nokia Cloudband, Cisco NSO, and other ONAP or ETSI NFV management and orchestration technologies.
Highlights
  • First & Last Line of Defense
