CHELMSFORD, Mass. (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and network management solutions for enterprise data centers and carrier networks, today extended their distribution agreement with Ingram Micro to include New Zealand. Ingram Micro is the largest global wholesale provider of technology products and supply-chain management services. Arbor’s PravailTM Availability Protection System (APS) enables Ingram Micro to offer enterprise customers a purpose-built solution that protects the network perimeter against threats to availability, specifically, application-layer distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
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.
“We are excited to be working with Arbor Networks in New Zealand. Their solutions address an acute problem for enterprises, - helping them to protect their critical networks, applications and services from denial of service attacks,” says Stuart Alexander, General Manager, Solutions Group at Ingram Micro.
Alexander says Arbor Networks’ Pravail is a world-leading security solution and strongly complements solutions from Ingram Micro’s other enterprise-focused vendor partners. “Arbor Networks is also an attractive vendor for our Reseller Partners, and offers a very comprehensive Reseller support and incentive program in New Zealand,” he says.
Application-layer attacks are low bandwidth, difficult to detect and target both end-users’ and network operators’ own ancillary supporting services, such as HTTP Web services and domain name system (DNS). According to Arbor’s 7th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, 40% of those who have deployed these devices within their data centers experienced significant firewall and/or IPS failure as a direct result of DDoS attack. Arbor’s Pravail APS delivers out-of-the-box, proven DDoS attack identification and mitigation capabilities to help enterprises overcome these data center security challenges.
“Arbor Networks® DDoS mitigation solutions are pervasively deployed in global service provider networks. To reach the enterprise market, we required the reach and resources and relationships of a partner like Ingram Micro,” said Nick Race, Arbor Networks country manager for Australia and New Zealand. “Ingram Micro is the market leader in Asia and we are excited about leveraging their vast resources with a very compelling product for data center operators at a time when network security threats are evolving and presenting acute challenges.”
