Arbor Cloud DDoS Protection service was the Gold Winner in the Security Services category at the annual Golden Bridge Awards programme held this month in San Francisco.
“We’re grateful that Arbor Cloud was recognised for delivering best practice defence against DDoS attacks,” says Arbor Networks president, Brian McCann. “Enterprises are rightly concerned about the availability of their networks, applications and services. With the Arbor Cloud DDoS service, we manage the entire defence for the customer from the data centre to the cloud, allowing them to focus on their business while we focus on maintaining availability.”
Arbor Cloud provides in-cloud protection from advanced and high-volume DDoS attacks without interrupting access to business applications and services. Arbor Cloud’s on-demand, traffic scrubbing service, staffed by Arbor’s DDoS security experts, defends against volumetric DDoS attacks that are too large to be mitigated on-premise.
Arbor Cloud’s on-premise component – powered by Arbor Networks APS – delivers visibility into traffic entering the network, providing always-on DDoS attack detection and mitigation. Unlike other disparate DDoS solutions, the on-premise APS device can “Cloud Signal” the Arbor Cloud to prepare for and begin traffic scrubbing when volumes reach a particular bandwidth threshold. Cloud signalling significantly reduces the time to mitigate attacks ensuring that you are protected even if your bandwidth becomes fully consumed.
Arbor Cloud offers complete transparency of operation, including providing a view into blocked hosts and even packets, offering the flexibility enterprises need to alter attack countermeasures and thresholds. Via layered protection, Arbor delivers a comprehensive, industry-leading DDoS protection solution for enterprise networks.
Bryan Hamman, territory manager for sub-Saharan Africa at Arbor Networks, adds: “Arbor Cloud delivers fully-managed, multi-layered protection for best practice DDoS defence, which is incredibly beneficial to operations in Africa as the region is witnessing a growth in DDoS attacks on enterprise networks.”
