CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2012) - Arbor Networks has been recognized by the prestigious Golden Bridge Awards in three categories -- Gold and Bronze in the Network Security Solution category; Silver in the Network Visibility category; and Bronze in the Customer Service category. The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, case studies, product management, public relations and marketing campaigns, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world.

"This is great recognition for our employees and all of the time, energy and effort they put into making Arbor a network security innovator and thought leader," said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. "Research, innovation and deep customer relationships are at the heart of what separates Arbor. Because of our deeps roots in the service provider market, we are able to develop innovations such as ATLAS and Cloud Signaling that bring tremendous value to our enterprise customers. We're deeply appreciative of this recognition from the Golden Bridge Awards."

Network Security Solution category

Gold: Cloud Signaling(SM) Functionality
Cloud Signaling functionality is an efficient and integrated way of bridging the enterprise perimeter to the service provider cloud. Only Arbor can provide this complete mitigation infrastructure because our service provider products power more than 50 of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS mitigation managed security services. Cloud Signaling functionality connects Arbor's on-premise Pravail APS device with the cloud-based Peakflow® SP solution, helping to ensure the availability of enterprise infrastructures and speed time-to-mitigation for DDoS attacks. Arbor believes that the best way for enterprises, data centers and cloud operators to have optimal protection against DDoS attacks is through this combination of on-premise and in-cloud protection. 

Bronze: Pravail™ Availability Protection System (APS)
Arbor's Pravail Availability Protection System (APS) represents a new type of on-premise security solution, focused on securing the enterprise perimeter from threats to the availability of a business's applications and services -- in essence, its livelihood. Pravail specifically protects against application-layer DDoS attacks. Pravail APS was built to stop attacks immediately without upfront configuration or any user interaction. It delivers DDoS attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed, even during an attack. Enterprises can also integrate Pravail APS upstream with their service providers' DDoS protection services to stop volumetric DDoS attacks.

Silver: Network Visibility

ATLAS® Intelligence Feed
Another innovative feature within the Arbor products is the ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF) which delivers deep DDoS signatures in real-time to keep networks protected against hundreds of botnet-fueled DDoS attack toolsets and their variants. This unique feed includes geo-location data and automates the identification of attacks against infrastructure and services from known botnets while ensuring that updates for new threats are automatically delivered without software upgrades. The ATLAS Intelligence Feed enables customers to directly benefit from the depth and breadth of Arbor's research team.

Bronze: Customer Satisfaction

Arbor Technical Assistance Center (ATAC)
Arbor Networks provides a comprehensive portfolio of support programs with the single goal of serving its customers and maximizing their network investment. With a variety of online and offline technical assistance and maintenance options, Arbor offers several service programs to meet any business and operational requirements. Arbor's technical support includes 24/7 privileged access to Arbor's Technical Assistance Center (ATAC) providing direct access to Arbor's expert team of technical support engineers as well as online access to a wealth of technical and operational information, software updates, and advanced hardware replacement.

Arbor's Implementation Service covers all the tasks necessary to analyze the customers' network, install and configure the Peakflow and Pravail solutions and provides post-implementation admin training to maximize the Return on Investment. In addition, when applicable, Arbor will stage and pre-configure its solutions for self-installation and remote system set-up.
