Infonetics Research Report on DDoS Solutions Identifies Arbor Networks as Global Leader in Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile Markets

BURLINGTON, MA, Dec 19, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, was cited in a new report by Infonetics Research as the global market leader for DDoS prevention overall as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile markets.

"2012 was a very active and important year for the DDoS market. The recent targeted attacks against U.S. financial services firms demonstrated that DDoS continues to be a powerful weapon and one that is continually changing. Multi-vector attacks involving a combination of high-speed, high-volume and application-layer attacks can create havoc for any organization that does not have the proper defenses in place. Arbor continued to maintain its leadership position across all market segments in 2012," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst for security at Infonetics Research.

"DDoS continues to be a significant problem for network operators across all market segments. As Infonetics research shows, the problem is not going away, and in fact, continues to present more complex challenges as the pace of innovation accelerates on the side of the attackers," said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. "Arbor's ability to maintain our leadership position across all market segments speaks to our deep subject matter expertise and a proven product portfolio, both of which are the result of having an incredibly talented and dedicated team of people behind our products.

This is indeed a nice way to end the year but it by no means indicates that we can rest on our laurels, even for a moment." DDoS Prevention Market Drivers According to Infonetics' DDoS Prevention Appliances Biannual Worldwide and Regional Market Share and Forecasts report, "Without a doubt, the number-one driver for the DDoS prevention market is the attacks themselves. Most major vendors operate threat labs and publish regular reports on threats, and the threat landscape is getting bigger, more complex and scarier at an alarming rate. From the September '12 US bank attacks to the Iranian elections, Wikileaks and the Anonymous army attacking anything with a whirring fan, DDoS attacks have been big news for the last two years. The rise of botnets and easy-to-use tools (like LOIC) for launching attacks means that there are more DDoS attacks pushing greater volumes of traffic, initiated by a wider variety of attackers than ever before. There is no indication that the pace of innovation in the creation of attacks and the ingenuity that drives the distribution of those threats will ever slow down, and so prevention solutions need to continue to evolve as well." Arbor's Enterprise Solutions Deliver Availability & Investment Protection What makes Arbor's Pravail(R) Availability Protection System (APS) such an important product for the enterprise is that it not only helps protect against availability threats such as application-layer DDoS attacks, but it also helps provide investment protection to existing security infrastructure. For example, firewalls and IPS are designed for important security problems outside of DDoS, such as stopping unauthorized access to critical resources, enforcing corporate security policies and preventing data loss. These all remain critical security problems. What has changed is that availability itself is now under assault and it requires a solution designed specifically for today's complex DDoS problem.

Arbor's ISP/Carrier Solutions Deliver Integrated Threat Detection and Mitigation The vast majority of the world's leading service providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in operation today rely on Arbor's Peakflow(R) SP platform to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets as well as high-bandwidth and application-layer DDoS attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services. 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 attack traffic only while maintaining legitimate business traffic. The Peakflow SP platform powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.
