Telecom service provider Exatel has deployed Arbor Networks’ Peakflow SP platform to launch a managed security service to enterprise customers that delivers distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack protection.
“Our customers are very concerned about the DDoS threat, that is why we are reaching for the best solutions accessible in the world,” said President of Exatel Wojciech Pomykała.
Arbor’s 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 capabilities.
When Peakflow SP identifies an attack, customer traffic is diverted to the Arbor Threat Management System where it is scrubbed, and network and application-layer attack traffic surgically removed, while legitimate business traffic is passed through to the customer without interrupting services. This powerful combination of visibility and security helps Exatel secure their own network while offering critical revenue generating services to their enterprise customers.
Arbor’s ATLAS intelligence feed helps provide unprecedented protection against botnet-fueled DDoS attacks.
Over the past five years, Arbor has tracked the rise of botnet-fueled DDoS attacks — in this year’s Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, botnets were identified by survey respondents as the primary engine fueling DDoS attacks that threaten the availability of data center and cloud-based infrastructures.
