Arbor Networks: A Leader in Network Monitoring and Security Solutions
From the Internet data center edge to the service provider core, the world’s leading network operators and Internet service providers turn to Arbor Networks to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services. In addition to being the de facto standard for network security and availability solutions, Arbor enables its customers to reduce costs by improving IPv4 and IPv6 traffic engineering, peering and other operational efficiencies. Additionally, Arbor’s solutions are a strategic investment for service providers, allowing them to utilize the same solution for infrastructure visibility and security to deliver new, differentiated, revenue-generating managed services such as MPLS VPN visibility and DDoS managed security services.
Through its unparalleled, privileged relationships with more than 300 worldwide service providers and global network operators, Arbor provides its customers with unequalled insight and actionable intelligence on Internet security and traffic trends via the Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS). More than 100 ISPs are sharing anonymous traffic data on an hourly basis (leveraging Arbor’s technology that sits on ISP networks), together with data from Arbor dark address monitoring probes, as well as third-party and other data feeds. ATLAS data informs a number of key decisions such as network security, market analysis, capacity planning, application trends, transit and peering relationships and content partners. With this unique vantage point, Arbor is ideally positioned to deliver intelligence about malware, exploits, phishing and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and services.
Arbor Security Services
The ATLAS data set also powers Arbor’s cloud-based services, from Fingerprint Sharing to the ATLAS Intelligence Feed security detection mechanisms to Routeviews which deliver Internet-wide routing knowledge. This information is aggregated, analyzed by ASERT, Arbor’s world-renown security research team, and then fed back to customers via our Peakflow SP and Pravail APS deployments.
Arbor also offers a comprehensive portfolio of customer support programs, from Onsite Resident Support Engineers to 24×7 Technical Assistance, training, best practices and more.
Industry Thought Leadership
Arbor security researchers are sought out for their insight and analysis of critical security and infrastructure issues such as denial of service (DoS) attacks, Domain Name System (DNS) security and the adoption of IPv6, as well as global Internet events. Arbor has been invited to testify before the House of Lords on behalf of the European Union on the subject of “Protecting Europe Against Large-scale Cyber-attacks” and have briefed NATO and many other international organizations and governments around the world on network infrastructure and security vulnerabilities.
Arbor’s longstanding relationships and reputation as a trusted advisor and solution provider make the annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report possible. The report offers a rare view into the challenges of network operators on the front lines of a global battle against botnets and DDoS attacks.
