that will allow him to make an immediate impact for Arbor in Asia,"

threats are not a regional problem, but a global one. Arbor's
deployment in global service provider networks, combined with our
enterprise solutions, makes for a very powerful combination. Jeff's
extensive business development and sales experience will help Arbor
build on its current success and further penetrate the market. We're
excited to have a leader of Jeff's caliber on board."  
"This is an exciting time to be joining Arbor as the company has made
great strides in APAC, especially among major wireline and mobile

Arbor Networks(R) Solutions Portfolio
 The vast majority of the
world's leading service providers rely on Arbor Network's Peakflow(R)
SP platform to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets
and volumetric and application-layer distributed denial-of-service
(DDoS) attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of
their services. The Peakflow SP platform includes two main
components, Peakflow SP and the Threat Management System (TMS).
Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic
engineering with TMS's carrier-class threat management, which
automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic,
while maintaining other business traffic. With the ability to
mitigate only the attack traffic, customer-facing services remain
available while providers actively mitigate attacks. The Peakflow SP
platform also powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS
managed security services. 
Arbor Network's Pravail family includes the Pravail(R) Availability
Protection System (APS), which looks out from the network perimeter
to detect and mitigate, in real-time, application-layer DDoS attacks.
These stealthy attacks are the primary threat to security
infrastructure solutions today which, if compromised, can threaten
the very availability of networks themselves. Pravail(R) Network
Security Intelligence (NSI) monitors network traffic data and uses
advanced analytics to help organizations close the security gaps left
by firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS). It looks inside
the network to help protect intellectual property and data from theft
or loss caused by advanced malware threats, internal network misuse
or abuse, or via infected mobile devices connected to the network.
