Arbor Networks has been identified again as the top supplier of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation appliances overall, as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile market segments, according to a new report from Infonetics Research.
According to Infonetics, DDoS prevention appliances are the first line of defence for most service providers and large enterprises around the globe looking to protect themselves from brute-force attacks on network or resource availability.
With the unprecedented number, size and coverage of DDoS attacks since the floodgates opened in 2008, vendors that build DDoS prevention solutions have continued to see a significant increase in demand. Just as important, firms are adopting hybrid solutions and lower-cost hardware to deploy on-premises DDoS mitigation solutions to address the cluster of lower-bandwidth attacks and complement this capital investment by handing off larger attacks to a dedicated cloud provider.
“When there is a demonstrable leader in a market, it is usually difficult for that vendor to protect its share, let alone grow it. Impressively, Arbor has done that here. And Arbor is not resting on its laurels. The introduction of its hybrid cloud services, fully managed services, a refreshed on-premises offering, and the upcoming launch of advanced threat detection and analytics all position Arbor to offer a broader, more robust set of capabilities that address a wide range of network security issues facing both service providers and enterprises around the globe,” says IHS Infonetics research director for Cybersecurity Technology, Jeff Wilson.
“We have successfully led this market for more than a decade and, with that long-standing history and deep domain expertise, we have worked tirelessly to stay ahead of the needs of our customers. A good example of this is our ever-expanding DDoS portfolio – we now deliver unmatched scalability, deployment and cost flexibility to meet the needs of any organisation. As the DDoS threat landscape continues to change in scope and complexity, so too do the needs of our customers and partners. They depend on us to innovate; it’s something we’re proud to be known for and continue to execute on as a team,” says Arbor Networks president, Matthew Moynahan.
