Arbor’s Pravail Availability Protection System Featured at Booth #74

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and network management solutions enterprise data centers and carrier networks, today announced that they are presenting an overview of the Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Threat Landscape at World Hosting Days 2012, the world’s largest Hosting event, held March 20-23, 2012 in Rust, Germany.

According to a recent report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as “the dominant leader for DDoS prevention” overall as well as in the Carrier Transport and Wired Broadband, Enterprise Data Center and Mobile market segment.

Arbor Networks works with hosting providers around the world and understands that the issue of availability is paramount. Hosting providers often have a higher risk of DDoS attack than other online businesses because hosting providers, in effect, aggregate the risk of all their customers. An attack on one customer can affect others and potentially the entire hosting operation because of the heavy reliance on shared infrastructure. The overall impact of a DDoS attack is a function of the time it takes to detect the attack, the time needed to mitigate it and the extent of service degradation both before and after mitigation.
