Arbor and its partner PromonLogicalis to highlight Security Solution Portfolio.

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that they will be exhibiting and speaking at Futurecom 2012, the biggest telecom and information technology event in Latin America. Futurecom takes place October 8-12 in Rio de Janeiro at the RioCentro Exhibition and Convention Center.

Along with regional partner PromonLogicalis, a leading integrator of telecommunications and information technology systems in Latin America, Arbor will be highlighting its security solutions portfolio for enterprise and service provider network operators. Additionally, Arbor’s Latin America Engineering Manager, Julio Arruda, will be presenting on Internet Security Trends.

The presentation will focus on the security incidents that are affecting service availability, demonstrate trends in the security landscape and provide statistics on these trends. The presentation will leverage data from Arbor’s truly innovative, one-of-a-kind ATLAS® Internet monitoring system. ATLAS is a collaborative effort with 230+ ISPs who have agreed to share 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 infrastructure collects more than 35 Tbps of Internet traffic, ideally positioning Arbor to deliver intelligence about malware, exploits, phishing and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and services. The information is aggregated, analyzed and fed back to customers via Arbor product deployments.

“PromonLogicalis delivers solutions to most of Latin America’s telecommunications operators and some of its largest corporations. With its Peakflow® solutions for service providers, large enterprises and the public sector, and its Pravail™ solutions for enterprises of all sizes, Arbor’s portfolio is an ideal match for us,” said Alexandre Murakami, security solutions manager from PromonLogicalis.
