BURLINGTON, Mass. (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry's leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Arbor Networks as a finalist in three categories for the 8th Annual 2013 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards: Security Hardware – New, Security Hardware – Upgrade, and Hot Company of the Year. These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world's premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners will be honored in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, during the 8th annual dinner and presentations.
This finalist nod comes on the heels of another industry accolade – Arbor was recently honored as a Gold winner in the 9th annual Info Security Products Guide awards for Best Overall Security Company of the Year.
"Being recognized yet again for our technology innovation and leadership in the industry overall is a big honor for us," said Colin Doherty, President of Arbor Networks. “As an organization, we pride ourselves on our ability to execute against our customers’ ever-evolving needs, and to do so in an innovative, forward-thinking manner. In this case, we’re delivering a two-pronged enterprise solution that gives customers both the visibility they need into the network to identify various advanced threats that may be lurking, plus the protection they need to help ward off these advanced and stealthy threats targeting their network perimeter. With this approach, we are closing the holes that legacy security solutions simply weren’t designed to address.”
Security Hardware Upgrade: Pravail® Availability Protection System (APS)
Arbor's Pravail APS represents a new type of on-premise security solution, focused on helping to secure the enterprise perimeter from threats to the availability of a business' applications and services – in essence, its livelihood. Pravail APS specifically helps protect against application-layer distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and was built to stop attacks promptly without upfront configuration or any user interaction. It delivers DDoS attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed, even during an attack. Enterprises can also integrate Pravail APS upstream with their service providers' DDoS protection services to help stop volumetric DDoS attacks.
Security Hardware – New: Pravail® Network Security Intelligence (NSI)
Pravail NSI monitors network traffic data and uses advanced analytics to help organizations close the security gaps left by firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS). It looks inside the network and delivers the situational awareness required to identify advanced threats, internal network misuse or abuse, and also infected mobile devices connected to the network. With Pravail NSI, Arbor has created a platform for delivering the actionable security intelligence that is critical for identifying and stopping attacks.
Hot Company of the Year:
What separates Arbor Networks from others is how the company leverages its service provider footprint to benefit all customers. For example, through Arbor’s ATLAS® Active Threat Level Analysis System, which is a collaborative project with more than 250+ customers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data totaling 40 terabytes-per-second (Tbps), this is the world’s largest globally-scoped threat analysis system in existence.
From this unique vantage point, Arbor is ideally positioned to deliver intelligence about DDoS, malware and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and network availability. Arbor customers enjoy a considerable competitive advantage by giving them both a micro view of their own network combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic; this is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.
An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.
