Arbor updates Peakflow SP
Company announces Peakflow SP Flex Licensing options, performance improvements
DDoS and advanced threat protection vendor Arbor Networks, has launched Flex Licensing options and announced major scalability and performance improvements to Peakflow SP.
"With the Peakflow SP 6.0 release, we're giving customers greater performance, scalability and the flexibility they require to see, understand and secure large, distributed and complex network environments. For example, for the first time, customers have the option to deploy the Peakflow SP solution on Arbor hardware, virtual machines or both. Plus major improvements in performance, scalability along with new Flex Licensing will allow our customers to cost effectively deploy the Peakflow SP solution pervasively across their network, from the peering/transit edge, to the core backbone, to the customer edge, vastly improving their traffic visibility and advanced threat protection," said Arbor Networks president Colin Doherty.
Arbor's Peakflow SP platform includes two main components, Peakflow SP and the Threat Management System (TMS). Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with TMS's carrier-class threat management that automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic while maintaining other business traffic. The Peakflow SP platform also powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.
"Arbor has been a key player in the service provider market for a decade, largely due to the success of the Peakflow SP platform. This release shows why Arbor has been able to maintain a leadership position for so long. They have never stopped innovating or listening to their customers," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst with Infonetics Research.
New features and benefits of the Peakflow SP 6.0 release include; flexible licensing and virtual deployments, independent platform and software licenses, support for virtual machines.
