Arbor Networks to Speak on Internet Threats at RSA Japan 2007

LEXINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 23, 2007 --

WHO:         Dr. Farnam Jahanian, co-founder and Chairman of the Board,
             Arbor Networks

WHEN:        April 25 13:00-13:50 (Tokyo time)

WHERE:       RSA Japan Conference
             Tokyo Prince Hotel Park Tower
             April 25-26, 2007
             Tokyo, Japan

TOPIC:       "The Evolution of Internet Threats"

DESCRIPTION: Dr. Farnam Jahanian will address how internet threats
             have undergone a rapid and dramatic evolution in recent
             years and how cyber criminals, who used to be motivated
             by a simple desire to disrupt service, are now driven by
             profit motives.

             He will discuss how threats are globally scoped -- respecting
             no geographic or topological boundaries -- resulting in an
             increase in spam, phishing scams and identity theft that are
             enabled by vast numbers of compromised computers sitting in
             homes, schools, businesses and government networks around
             the world.

             Dr. Jahanian will also demonstrate the changing Internet
             ecology and the evolution of cyber threats, highlighting
             the latest measurement-based results on the explosion of
             botnets as well as the cutting edge techniques available
             today to combat this burgeoning wave of crime.
