Arbor Networks Names Jeff Buhl as Vice President of the Asia

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, March 13, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) 
Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of network security and management
solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced the
appointment of Jeff Buhl as the company's Vice President of the Asia Pacific
(APAC) region. In this role, Buhl will be responsible for driving Arbor's sales
and channel initiatives in the APAC region as the company continues its
expansion there.  
Buhl brings seventeen years of international business leadership experience to
his new role at Arbor. Previous experience includes multi-channel management,
enterprise software and solution sales, telecommunications operator business
development and consulting experience with the last eight years spent in Asia
Pacific, specifically. Buhl previously held senior leadership roles at NQ
Mobile, Good Technology and BEA Systems.  
Arbor Networks has been active in APAC nearly a decade and has gained
significant traction with some of the region's network operators, including Tata
Communications, SK Telecom, China Telecom, Hunan Mobile, KDDI and StarHub among
others. 
“Jeff brings the right mix of service provider and channel expertise that will
allow him to make an immediate impact for Arbor in Asia,” said Arbor Networks
President Colin Doherty. “DDoS and advanced 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 success to date 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 operators,” said
Jeff Buhl. “I'm really looking forward to helping the company continue to
expand its APAC footprint as Arbor continues to help network operators in the
region protect their infrastructure from DDoS and other advanced threats
targeting them today.”  
Arbor Networks® Solutions Portfolio 
The vast majority of the world's leading service providers rely on Arbor's
Peakflow® 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's Pravail family includes the Pravail® 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® 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.
