Chelmsford, MA (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and network management solutions for next-generation data centers and carrier networks, announced a distribution agreement with Exclusive Networks Group, a European value-added distributor specializing in professional IT solutions. Exclusive Networks Group is now able to distribute Arbor’s PravailTM Availability Protection System (Pravail APS) for enterprise data center availability and the Peakflow® SP platform for service provider networks across Europe.
“Arbor is the clear market leader in DDoS mitigation with the Peakflow platform, and with the new Pravail APS product they are bringing their decade of service provider experience to the enterprise data center,” said Barrie Desmond, director of Marketing and Global Accounts at Exclusive Networks Group. “Pravail APS focuses on the issue of availability, and supplements firewall and IPS products that are concerned with integrity and confidentiality of the network. Enterprises realize that everything starts with availability, and that is at the heart of the reseller opportunity.”
“Arbor Networks has been selling DDoS mitigation solutions to European Internet Service Providers for nearly a decade, and we include most of the continents Tier One providers as customers. Pravail APS brings a decade worth of experience in the world’s largest and most sophisticated networks to the enterprise data center,” said Jeremy Nicholls, Europe channel director at Arbor Networks. “To reach the enterprise market, we need to work with leading distribution partners that have the influence and relationships to open doors. Exclusive Networks Group has those relationships, along with a great reputation. We are very excited about what we can accomplish together.”
Arbor Networks® Solutions Overview
Pravail APS is an on-premise device that protects the enterprise data centre edge from threats to availability — specifically, application-layer distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Pravail APS delivers carrier-class DDoS attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed with little configuration, even during an attack.
Frost & Sullivan Global Program director for Network Security Rob Ayoub recently commented, “In recent months, high profile attacks and outages have gotten the attention of C-level executives. They are starting to understand that security begins with availability. If your data centre is not available, all the compliance or data integrity in the world is not going to help your customers, business or your brand. Arbor is addressing the number one threat to the availability of data centre resources and that is the increasing prevalence and effectiveness of application-layer denial of service attacks that target infrastructure, and potentially, existing security devices themselves.”
The vast majority of the world’s leading service providers rely on Arbor’s Peakflow SP platform to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric 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 only attack traffic while maintaining legitimate business traffic. The Peakflow SP platform powers many of the world’s leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.
