Monitor customer access points at the edge of their infrastructure
Arbor Networks, a provider of security and network management offering for converged carrier networks and data centres, said that its Peakflow product family has been selected by Adversor to support the company’s new cloud-based distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation service.
The new cloud-based service ensures that DDoS attacks are identified and mitigated before they get to customer premises.
Arbor’s Peakflow SP offering monitors customer access points at the edge of their infrastructure, to constantly monitoring the entire Internet, looking for attacks that could disrupt or impact the availability of customer services.
When Peakflow SP identifies an attack, customer traffic is diverted to the Arbor Threat Management System where it is scrubbed, and attack traffic surgically removed, while legitimate business traffic is passed through to the customer.
Adversor CEO Simon Cartwright said the company was focused on the growing and constantly changing problem of DdoS and has developed a unique security service that for the first time addresses the needs of any business operating online, from large global companies to small and medium-sized enterprises.
"Adversor could not offer a world-class DDoS mitigation service without utilising the Arbor Networks Peakflow SP platform and it is the de facto standard worldwide for DDoS attack identification and real-time mitigation," Cartwright said.
