Arbor Networks Partners With Ingram Micro in India to Help Enterprises Mitigate DDoS Threats to Their Businesses

Peakflow® SP Platform Delivers Integrated Threat Detection and Mitigation for Large Network Operators; Pravail™ APS Delivers On-Premise Protection From Application-Layer Attacks on Network Availability

CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 9, 2012) - Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and network management solutions for enterprise and carrier networks, today extended their distribution agreement with Ingram Micro to include India. Ingram Micro is distributing Arbor's Pravail™ Availability Protection System (Pravail APS) for enterprise network availability and the Peakflow® SP platform for large enterprise and service provider networks.

"Arbor Networks is addressing a major concern for enterprises of all sizes -- ensuring the availability of critical applications and services. Arbor's Pravail APS provides tremendous value to the enterprise. From the partner perspective, Arbor offers a very comprehensive support and incentive program for our Reseller Partners," said Mr. Jaishankar Krishnan, managing director of Ingram Micro India Ltd.

Global Leader in DDoS Protection
According to a recent report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as "the dominant leader for DDoS prevention" overall as well as in the Carrier Transport and Wired Broadband, Enterprise Data Center and Mobile market segments. 

Integrated Threat Detection & Mitigation for Global Enterprise and ISP Networks
The vast majority of the world's leading service providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in operation today rely on Arbor's Peakflow SP platform to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer DDoS attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services. 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 that automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic while maintaining legitimate business traffic. The Peakflow SP platform powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.

Availability & Investment Protection for the Enterprise
What makes Arbor's Pravail APS such an important product for the enterprise is that it not only protects against availability threats such as application-layer DDoS attacks, it provides investment protection to existing security infrastructure. For example, firewalls and IPS are designed for important security problems other than DDoS. They were built to stop unauthorized access to critical resources, enforce corporate security policies and prevent data loss. These all remain critical security problems. What's changed is that availability itself is now under assault and it requires a solution designed specifically for today's complex DDoS problem.

Pravail APS Highlights:

  • Out-of-the-Box Protection
    • Rapidly deployable with little configuration, even during an attack.
    • A single, easy-to-manage platform with extensive reporting capabilities.
  • Cloud Signaling(SM) Functionality
    • Facilitates both enterprise data center-edge mitigation of application-layer attacks and upstream service provider mitigation of volumetric attacks in an automated, coordinated and real-time manner.
    • The only mechanism available today that provides complete protection against both application and volumetric DDoS attacks.
  • ATLAS® Intelligence Feed
    • Automates the identification of botnet-borne attacks against data center infrastructures.
    • Monitors for new threats, delivers updates automatically and includes geo-location data.

"Arbor Networks® DDoS mitigation solutions are pervasively deployed in global service provider networks. To reach the enterprise market, we required the reach and resources and relationships of a partner like Ingram Micro," said Attley Ng, Arbor Networks vice president and general manager for APAC. "Ingram Micro is the market leader in Asia and we are excited about leveraging their vast resources with a very compelling product for data center operators at a time when network security threats are evolving and presenting acute challenges."
