Arbor Networks announces enhancements to its DDoS mitigation portfolio
BURLINGTON, MA: As businesses continue to increasingly rely on internet based services, there has been tremendous rise in the magnitude of DDoS attacks. Attack targets have expanded to devices making up security infrastructure and applications such as HTTP, HTTPS, VoIP, DNS and SMTP. With the largest attack in 2015 being 500Gbps, Arbor reported a 50 times increase over the past decade. Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT is the world’s leading provider of DDoS protection in the enterprise, carrier and mobile market segments. To better enable customers to manage the increasing size and complexity of modern DDoS attacks Arbor announced enhancements to its DDoS mitigation portfolio for enterprise and service provider networks.
Enhancing Arbor TMS DDoS mitigation platform is Arbor TMS HD1000, a 2U appliance supporting up to 160Gbps of mitigation. The new high-capacity solution can help save finite mitigation capacity through IPv6 rate limiting and automatically offloading traffic to the network using BGP Black Hole mitigation methods. TMS 5000 is now supported by 100 Gigabit Ethernet and can now be used with up to four 100G Ethernet ports. Arbor’s on-premise APS 5.9 can initiate surgical mitigation in the Cloud without impacting the normal traffic for hosts or services that are not under active attack.
“Innovation is the lifeblood of Arbor Networks and has been since our founding in 2000 following a DARPA grant. With Cloud Signaling, we’ve created a fast and automated way to connect the enterprise on-premise with the service provider cloud. This multi-layered approach championed by Arbor is today the de facto best practice for DDoS defense. We’re constantly evolving our defenses to keep ahead of the attackers who rightly view availability as the lifeblood of the modern business,” said Arbor Networks Vice President of Product Management Eric Jackson.
