Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire (PRWEB UK) 20 January 2014

Phoenix Datacom, the UK’s most technically competent provider of solutions and professional services to enhance the performance and security of networks and applications, has partnered with Arbor Networks - a world-leader for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise, government and service provider networks.

John Carson, Managing Director at Phoenix Datacom, said, “Over the past 18 months, the number of professional service audits we have carried out to measure our customers’ defences against DDoS attacks has almost doubled. In most cases, customers have subsequently asked us to compare the DDoS Mitigation solutions they have under Proof of Concept (PoC), by stress testing them with a variety of modern DDoS attacks to find their absolute physical limitations. In each case, solutions from Arbor Networks came out on top by withstanding a higher frequency and wider range of DDoS attacks than all of the other DDoS Mitigation solutions we tested. Naturally, we are very pleased to partner with Arbor Networks.”

Colin Gray, Vice President at Arbor Networks EMEA, said, “As one of the most well-known and respected providers of network performance and security improvement solutions in the UK, Phoenix Datacom is in an excellent position to extend its DDoS capabilities to the provision and support of Pravail® and Arbor CloudSM. We are delighted to partner with Phoenix Datacom, particularly at a time where the rise of DDoS attacks targeting networks, business-critical applications and company web sites continues to grow at an exponential rate.”

Carson went on to say - “Our experiences testing and validating defences against DDoS attacks have given us the knowledge and expertise needed to quickly identify the types of DDoS attacks used to target different types of customer environment and application. This puts us in an excellent position to provide and support our customers in the government, enterprises, mobile operators and carriers with what we have found to be the best DDoS Mitigation solutions available on the market today.”
