PeakFlow Used In DDoS Mitigation Application

Arbor Networks : 09 December, 2010  (Application Story)
Adversor is using Peakflow from Arbor Networks as part of its cloud-based DDoS mitigation service for the protection of both small and large businesses
Arbor Networks has announced that their Peakflow product family will help power a new cloud-based DDoS mitigation service launched today by Adversor.

Adversor is focused exclusively on the growing problem of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, offering security services that can meet the needs of everyone from global organisations to small businesses. Adversor's cloud-based service ensures that DDoS attacks are identified and mitigated before they get to customer premises. Adversor is using Arbor's Peakflow SP solution to monitor customer access points at the edge of their infrastructure, in addition to constantly monitoring the entire Internet, looking for attacks that could disrupt or impact the availability of customer services. When Peakflow SP identifies an attack, customer traffic is diverted to the Arbor Threat Management System where it is scrubbed, and attack traffic surgically removed, while legitimate business traffic is passed through to the customer. Arbor Networks® delivers an integrated solution that identifies and surgically removes network and application layer attacks without interrupting the flow of legitimate traffic. This means that customer-facing services remain available while Adversor actively mitigates attacks.

"Adversor is acutely focused on the growing and constantly changing problem of DDoS. We have developed a unique security service that for the first time addresses the needs of any business operating online, from large global companies to small and medium-sized enterprises," said Simon Cartwright, Adversor's chief executive officer. "Adversor could not offer a world-class DDoS mitigation service without utilizing the Arbor Networks Peakflow SP platform. It is the de facto standard worldwide for DDoS attack identification and real-time mitigation. Arbor brings tremendous domain expertise and has been a fantastic partner to work with."

"Adversor shares Arbor's passion for solving the DDoS problem. They have developed a unique cloud-based service that can help organizations of all sizes maintain the availability of their online properties. If web services are unavailable because of an attack, the consequences can be extreme, from lost revenue to damaged reputations. Any business online today, no matter their size, should be prepared to defend against a DDoS attack. For many, this has been out of their reach, until now," said Tony King, Arbor Networks vice-president for European operations.
