Infonetics Research Report Identifies Arbor Networks as World

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, June 27, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) 
Arbor's DDoS Technology Leads in Enterprise, Carrier and Mobile Markets 
Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of network security and management
solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that a
June 2013 report from Infonetics Research titled DDoS Prevention Appliance
Market Outlook, has again cited Arbor Networks as the top supplier of DDoS
prevention solutions overall as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile
market segments.  
Market Drivers for DDoS Prevention 
According to Infonetics, the key drivers for increased investment in DDoS
prevention solutions include:  
-- Ever-increasing size, speed, duration, and complexity of attacks 
-- Unabated growth of Internet traffic with no end in sight as M2M carries the
momentum that mobile devices started 
-- Growing enterprise demand for on-premise (or hybrid cloud/on-premise) DDoS
prevention solutions 
-- Data center consolidation, data center upgrades, and the rollout of cloud
-- Deployment of managed DDoS services 
“Despite the entry of many new players, Arbor has maintained a leadership
position in DDoS prevention for more than a decade. They leveraged their
extensive service provider footprint and experience to build the Pravail®
family of solutions for enterprise customers who are being bombarded with high
profile, targeted, and sustained attacks. Many enterprises will deploy a hybrid
DDoS mitigation solution that starts on-premise and is supported in the
cloud,” said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst with Infonetics Research. 
“Arbor just finished a series of customer summit meetings around the world
bringing large enterprise network operators, carriers, cloud and hosting
providers together for two days of meetings. They operate networks of vastly
different size and scale, but they share many of the same challenges and
pressures, from networks management complexity to outsourcing and loss of
control over network assets, to staffing skill sets and budget,” said Arbor
Networks President Colin Doherty. 
“Arbor benefits greatly from these discussions. We know that great products
are more than bells and whistles. They have to do the job technically, but they
must also be easy to deploy, operate and manage. Our goal is to deliver products
that do what they say they'll do, but also act as a “force multiplier”,
making network and security teams the experts. Arbor aims to provide a richer
picture into their network and more security context - so they can solve
problems faster and better reduce the risk to their business. Without these
customer meetings and discussions, I don't think we'd fully appreciate these
particular challenges or put so much emphasis into solving them.”  
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 a 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.
