Arbor updates cloud, on-premise protection systems for DDoS defence
APT specialist announces ‘significant enhancements’ to Arbor Cloud, Prevail solutions
DDoS and advanced threat protection mitigation specialist Arbor Networks, Inc, today announced significant enhancements to both on-premise and cloud components of its hybrid DDoS defence solutions.
The impact of a DDoS attack is not the same for every organisation, the company pointed out. It aims its Arbor Cloud solution at customers with global networks, or those in which Web and application availability is a necessity for employees, customers and supply chain partners.
"With DDoS protection from Arbor Cloud and the Pravail Availability Protection System, enterprises can deploy best-practice defence in a single solution, with tightly integrated mitigation from the enterprise premise to the cloud," the company said in a statement.
Arbor Cloud's hybrid defence is designed to protect enterprises against a "wide spectrum" of DDoS attacks, including volumetric, application-layer, state-exhaustion (for example, targeting firewalls or IPS), blended and multi-vector. The Pravail solution is aimed at allowing enterprise IT staff to maintain control of mitigation, and gives admins the ability to alert the cloud when attacks reach a certain size that cannot be blocked locally.
"Arbor Networks has more experience than anyone on the planet in fighting DDoS attacks for complex and demanding networks," claimed Arbor Networks president Matthew Moynahan.
"We've taken everything we've learned since 2000 and poured it into Arbor Cloud, making it the premier DDoS protection service for those organisations that absolutely must ensure the availability of their networks, services and applications. Our technology is proven, reliable and highly scalable, infused with cutting-edge research and backed by a world-class service and support organisation that is absolutely committed to do whatever it takes to keep customer networks up and running."
