Chelmsford, MA (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced that they are a Platinum sponsor for the Internet Security Days 2012 (ISD 2012) trade show and exhibition taking place in Bruehl, Germany on September 11-12, 2012.
“Arbor participated in the ISD 2011 and found it to be a very worthwhile event, bringing together leading technology vendors and enterprises concerned about a wide variety of security and networking issues,” said Michael Tullius, Arbor Networks country manager in Germany. “For more than a dozen years Arbor has been focused on the DDoS problem, and we have closely tracked its evolution. Today, any business operating online is a potential target of hackers. We’ve developed purpose-built solutions for enterprises of all sizes who are concerned with maintaining the availability of Internet assets, from networks to applications and services.”
Dynamic Threat Landscape: DDoS Targeting Businesses of All Sizes
With the rise of hacktivism in recent years, any enterprise operating online can become a target, because of who they are, what they sell, who they partner with. The explosion of inexpensive and readily-accessible attack tools is enabling anyone to carry out DDoS attacks. At the other end of the spectrum, commercial DDoS services are running full-steam, with a variety of service offerings available. Botnets ‘for hire’ are springing up everywhere, and unskilled attackers are now able to hire botnet services for bargain-basement prices. Just as an enterprise can subscribe to a technology provider or a cloud-based DDoS mitigation service, hacktivists can subscribe to a DDoS service to launch attacks. Not only can potential customers “test drive” DDoS attack services before purchasing, they also can get discounts for multiple purchases. Some services offer persistent attacks for as little as $1000/month. This has profound implications for the threat landscape, risk profile, network architecture and security deployments for any business operating online today.
World Leader in DDoS Mitigation
Arbor Networks’ 450 customers include the vast majority of the world's service providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today. According to a recent report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as top supplier of DDoS prevention solutions overall as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise, Government and Mobile market segments.
Availability & Investment Protection for the Enterprise
What makes Arbor’s approach to DDoS such an important solution for the enterprise is that it not only protects against availability threats such as application-layer DDoS attacks, it provides investment protection to existing security infrastructure. For example, firewalls and IPS are designed for important security problems other than DDoS. They were built to stop unauthorized access to critical resources, enforce corporate security policies and prevent data loss. What’s changed is that availability itself is now under assault and it requires a solution designed specifically for today’s complex DDoS problem.
