Arbor Networks® Solutions Portfolio
The vast majority of the world's leading service providers rely on Arbor's Peakflow® SP platform to proactively help fend off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, while helping to strengthen the availability and quality of their services. The Peakflow SP platform includes two main components, Peakflow SP and the Threat Management System (TMS). Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with TMS's carrier-class threat management, which is designed to automatically detect and surgically remove only attack traffic, while maintaining legitimate business traffic. By focusing on only the attack traffic, customer-facing services can remain available while providers work to actively mitigate attacks. The Peakflow SP platform also powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.
Arbor’s Pravail family includes the Pravail® Availability Protection System (APS), which looks out from the network perimeter to aid in detecting and mitigating, in real-time, application-layer DDoS attacks. These stealthy attacks are the primary threat to security infrastructure solutions today which, if compromised, can threaten the very availability of networks themselves. Pravail® Network Security Intelligence (NSI) monitors network traffic data and uses advanced analytics to help organizations close any security gaps left by firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). It looks inside the network to help protect intellectual property and data from theft or loss caused by advanced malware threats, internal network misuse or abuse, or via infected mobile devices connected to the network.
