BURLINGTON, Mass. -- March 12, 2014

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat
protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced
today that they provided 7x24 Enhanced Event-Based Technical and Threat
Mitigation Support for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic web properties for
Rostelecom, Russia’s largest service provider.

“This is the third Olympic Games that Arbor has played a role in ensuring the
availability of its Web properties. This was a significant undertaking that
went extremely well because of our excellent working relationship with
Rostelecom and their teams,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.
“This was a true team effort on both sides, and great validation of the
importance of having multi-layered DDoS protection.”

“There was a huge amount of work done by Arbor consulting engineers and
developers during preparation phase of the Event, and as a result we were able
to implement new features to mitigate advanced DDoS attacks and to increase
our mitigation capacity twice,” said Rostelecom’s Head of Network Security
Muslim Medzhlumov. “Due to the collaboration we have with Arbor, we were able
to deliver continuous services to all of our customers during the Sochi
Olympic Games.”

Multi-Layered DDoS Protection

Rostelecom was able to protect Sochi Olympic web properties with
best-practices DDoS defense in a single integrated solution that delivers
mitigation from the data center to the cloud. Arbor’s products and services
help protect against the full spectrum of DDoS attacks, including volumetric,
application-layer, state-exhaustion (e.g. targeting firewall/IPS), blended and
multi-vector attacks.

Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT) was proactively
monitoring botnets and malware families via ATLAS^®, a globally scoped threat
intelligence service developed in conjunction with nearly 300 service provider
customers who share anonymous traffic data with Arbor. ATLAS gives Arbor
security researchers unique insight into 80TB/sec of global Internet traffic,
helping them to identify threats and develop protections before they impact

and Arbor Cloud^SM Security Operations Center provided 7x24 around the clock
enhanced remote threat and technical support for Rostelecom.
