STERLING, Va. -- November 14, 2013

Neustar, a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services and
analysis, today announced the launch of SiteProtect Always-On Hybrid, a fully
managed, hybrid distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection service that
utilizes both on-premise and cloud-based mitigation to help organizations stay
one step ahead of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks. The cyber threat
landscape continues to evolve rapidly and an increase in malicious cyber
attack methods is driving the need for organizations to diversify their
approach to online security.

SiteProtect Always-On Hybrid combines Neustar’s team of DDoS experts and
global, cloud-based DDoS network with Arbor Network’s Pravail DDoS appliance,
offering enterprises total protection with:

  *24/7 DDoS threat management with Neustar’s Security Operations team
  *Remote management of on-premise Arbor Pravail appliances to combat smaller
    application layer attacks and cloud signaling when the appliance capacity
    is exceeded
  *Managed redirect to Neustar’s global, cloud-based mitigation network for
    larger more sophisticated attacks.

“DDoS mitigation requires a two-phased solution. To fully defend against these
determined attackers, you will need a local short-term solution and a
third-party service to provide long-term protection,” writes Forrester
Research principal analyst John Kindervag in a May 2013 Forrester report
entitled “Develop a Two-Phased DDoS Mitigation Strategy.”

SiteProtect Always-On Hybrid addresses that need for enterprises of all sizes
and allows Neustar’s leading security specialists to assume the responsibility
of managing a DDoS attack. With more than 10 years of experience defending
against DDoS attacks, Neustar’s security team is dedicated to staying ahead of
evolving threats and current with the latest mitigation techniques.

“The combination of Neustar’s cloud-based network and Arbor’s on-site
appliance provides comprehensive DDoS protection that ensures our clients are
protected against even the most elaborate attacks,” said Alex Berry, Senior
Vice President at Neustar. “In addition, our clients will have access to an
entire team of experts whose sole focus is DDoS detection and mitigation,
giving them the peace of mind that threats will be identified quickly and
managed effectively.”

Neustar chose Arbor, the market-leader in DDoS equipment, as part of the
hybrid solution to offer their clients a best-of-breed solution.

“Arbor and Neustar have a long history of working together to help customers
solve the DDoS problem. Neustar’s fully managed hybrid offering recognizes the
multi-layered nature of the DDoS threat, and the critical role on-premise
protection plays in modern DDoS defense,” said Arbor Networks President Colin

The solution also offers a number of flexible deployment options, including
appliance management by the customer. For more, please visit
