DDoS detection and mitigation platform
September 2017, Cyber Security, Products
Arbor Networks, the security division of NetScout, has announced a new version of its on-premise, always-on, inline distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) detection and mitigation platform for enterprise customers, Arbor Networks APS.
Arbor APS v5.11 includes new features designed to ease the management of multiple APS devices and reduce the time to attack mitigation via improvements to its powerful ‘Cloud Signalling’ capability.
“Cloud Signalling has been a key innovation in enabling the industry-wide adoption of hybrid, or multi-layer DDoS defence as a best practice. Arbor understands the threat landscape and has created an elegant way of linking on-premise and cloud-based mitigation. This tight connection is key to delivering protection from today’s advanced DDoS attacks,” says Rob Ayoub, research director in IDC’s Security Products programme.
As DDoS attacks continue to dramatically rise in size, frequency and complexity, automation has become increasingly critical to protecting the network against these attacks. Arbor’s Cloud Signalling capability automates key aspects of DDoS defence, tightly integrating on-premise and cloud-based mitigation. The fidelity of Arbor Cloud Signalling has been further enhanced as locally configured blacklists/whitelists on the Arbor APS are now embedded in the Cloud Signalling communication.
The Arbor DDoS attack protection solution delivers intelligent integration between on-premises and in-cloud DDoS attack protection, backed by threat intelligence via the ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF). Developed by Arbor’s Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT), the AIF includes geolocation data and automates the identification of attacks against infrastructure and services from known botnets and malware while ensuring that updates for new threats are automatically delivered without software upgrades.
This new management functionality benefits enterprises that manage the APS devices, as well as MSSPs that offer multi-layer or hybrid DDoS managed services to their customers. Arbor APS v5.11 includes a new console that greatly eases the management of multi-APS environments by providing centralised configuration and aggregated views of all DDoS attack activity. Each console can manage up to 50 APS devices.
