Arbor Sightline provides the most comprehensive reporting for network utilization and DDoS protection. Combining Arbor Sightline with Arbor Sightline With Sentinel and Arbor Threat Mitigation System (TMS), security operators can detect attacks rapidly, orchestrate mitigation across their networks, and have full visibility into understanding exactly what mitigations are happening, why they’re active, and how, with full reporting.
With Arbor Sightline and TMS, the ISP can rapidly detect DDoS attacks and affect mitigation extremely quickly. This resulted in reduced operational overhead, lowered time to resolution, and prevented unnecessary and costly responses such as truck rolls. Additionally, Arbor Sightline With Sentinel provides comprehensive reporting across the entire mitigation response, including traffic blocked by the Network with BGP FlowSpec.
With this combination of comprehensive mitigation and reporting, the ISP also began offering DDoS mitigation to their customers as a supplement to their Internet service. With the ISP-provided DDoS mitigation, Customers can now have on-demand or always-on protection as part of their overall Internet service and SLA with the ISP. The ISP utilizing Arbor Sightline With Sentinel is able to generate usage reports outlining all aspects of a DDoS mitigation – both the volume and types of attacks. Customers can now see with full clarity what traffic was dropped, where it was dropped, and why, and the ISP can validate and report on both their own and their customer’s usage levels.
