Arbor Networks, Inc. Key Developments

Arbor Networks Inc. Enhances Honeypot Network with Additional Cloud-Based Infrastructure

Arbor Networks Inc. has enhanced its honeypot network with additional cloud-based infrastructure to monitor scanning activities that could lead to Internet of Things device (IoT) compromises. These instances are present in Northeast Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia Pacific, Central EU, Western EU, Eastern South America, Eastern US and Western US regions. IoT devices are ideal targets for attackers looking to build Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) botnets because they have limited or non-existent security features. Some IoT devices utilize hard-coded default passwords. Many devices have unnecessary services running that can be exploited, and others have unprotected management interfaces.

Arbor Networks New Arbor SP Insight Big Data Analytics Extension to SP Deployments Raises the Bar for Network Visibility

Arbor Networks Inc. announced Arbor SP Insight, a new software-based extension to its Arbor Networks SP platform (Arbor SP) that dramatically expands and enhances network operators’ traffic analytics and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack forensics capabilities. The majority of the world’s internet service providers, along with data center operators and large network operators, rely on Arbor Networks’ SP platform for network-wide visibility, DDoS detection, traffic engineering and advanced peering and transit analysis. Arbor SP helps these customers maintain peak service performance and availability, intelligently expand their network capacity, understand their operational costs and uncover new service opportunities. With the launch of Arbor SP Insight, operators can further enhance their network visibility and make more informed operational, security and business decisions faster than ever before. Arbor SP Insight adds powerful new visual analytics and a big data repository to Arbor SP while preserving Arbor’s unique flow annotations and enrichment – giving users an infinitely searchable photographic memory of their traffic data with essential network context. Arbor SP Insight’s all-new interactive user interface tightly integrates with existing Arbor SP workflows for a near-zero learning curve and unified user experience, so users have the power and freedom to explore their data and reach conclusions faster and more intuitively. Arbor SP Insight enables service providers and global network operators to research impaired network performance events and reduce time to resolution of future events by quickly conducting wide-ranging and fine-grained root cause analysis on large sets of un-aggregated traffic data. Customers can also perform ‘What if’ analysis on their peering and transit traffic, driving new discoveries and proactive capacity planning and backbone engineering decisions that reduce costs and increase revenues. Arbor’s unique flow annotations and enrichment create crucial context by matching Arbor SP Insight’s memory to Arbor SP’s knowledge of network topology, customers and traffic patterns – enabling users to conduct agile, multi-dimensional searches of their raw and enriched data with unlimited filtering, the ability to maintain granularity over time, detailed retrospective drill-downs and effortless pivots from graphical to tabular visualizations – all while maintaining state on the event and period of interest.
