Arbor Networks Named Finalist in Three Categories in Info Security Products Guide's Global Excellence Awards

Categories Include Best Overall Security Company, Innovation in Enterprise Security and New Product Launch

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) - Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Arbor Networks as a finalist in three categories in its 2013 Global Excellence Awards. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technology. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on February 27 during the annual awards dinner and presentation.

"It is gratifying to be named a finalist across three separate categories in this year's Info Security Products Guide awards," said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. "For more than a dozen years, Arbor has researched, innovated and solved security challenges in the world's most demanding service provider networks. We are leveraging our global service provider footprint to deliver a unique solution to the enterprise, giving customers visibility into malicious traffic and advanced threats long before they reach their networks. I am personally very pleased that the dedication and hard work of the team at Arbor is being recognized by this prestigious industry award."

Best Overall Security Company
What separates Arbor Networks from others is how the company leverages its service provider footprint to benefit all customers. For example, Arbor's ATLAS® Active Threat Level Analysis System, which is a collaborative project with more than 250 customers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data totaling 38 terabites-per-second (Tbps), is the world's largest globally scoped threat analysis system in existence.

From this unique vantage point, Arbor is ideally positioned to deliver intelligence about DDoS, malware and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and network availability. Arbor customers enjoy a considerable competitive advantage through a micro view of their own network combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic. This is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.

Innovation in Enterprise Security: Pravail® Availability Protection System (APS)
Arbor's Pravail APS represents a new type of on-premise security solution, focused on helping to secure the enterprise perimeter from threats to the availability of a business's applications and services -- in essence, its livelihood. Pravail APS specifically helps protect against application-layer distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and was built to stop attacks promptly 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 help stop volumetric DDoS attacks.

New Product Launch: Pravail® Network Security Intelligence (NSI)
Pravail NSI monitors network traffic data and uses advanced analytics to help organizations close the security gaps left by firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS). It looks inside the network and delivers the situational awareness required to identify advanced threats, internal network misuse or abuse, and infected mobile devices connected to the network. With Pravail NSI, Arbor has created a platform for delivering the actionable security intelligence that is critical for identifying and stopping attacks.
