Arbor Networks Named to Annual Top Workplaces List by the Detroit Free Press

Company Lands 6th Spot in List of 100 Top Places to Work in Michigan

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - Nov 19, 2012) - Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and network management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a Top Workplace by the Detroit Free Press for its Ann Arbor office where the majority of the company's engineering, research and development takes place.

Innovation and problem solving, from our founding to today, that's the heart of what we do at Arbor Networks. Arbor was founded out of groundbreaking research conducted at the University of Michigan. This research was eventually funded by the U.S. Defense Agency Research Projects Administration (DARPA) and commercialized via Arbor Networks in 2000. Since that time, Arbor has grown to become the world leader in DDoS prevention. Arbor's customers include the vast majority of the world's ISPs and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today. According to a recent report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as top supplier of DDoS prevention solutions overall as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise, Mobile and Government market segments.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with more than 30 major publishing partners and recognizes a National list of Top Workplaces. Over the past year, more than 4,500 organizations and 1 in every 100 employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what's on the minds of their employees.

"Arbor Networks' biggest challenge right now is scaling our business to meet demand. We have a tremendous market opportunity in front of us as businesses are increasingly concerned about network security threats," said Kris Lamb, vice president of engineering at Arbor Networks. "A critical component of scaling the business is retaining existing employees and giving them paths and opportunities for growth within the company while attracting new talent to the mix as we grow into adjacent markets in the years to come. It's an honor to be named to the 'Top Workplaces' list, particularly because this is an employee-driven award which goes to show that our company culture is dotted with pride in the company and in our mission."

The Free Press published the complete list of Top Workplaces on Sunday, November 18th. For more information about the Top Workplaces lists and WorkplaceDynamics, please visit and
