Arbor Networks - DDoS Protection & DDoS Attack Mitigation

Company overview

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 unequaled 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.
