Neo Telecoms Selects Arbor Networks Peakflow SP for Network Security Protection, Peering and Transit Analysis

CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwire - October 27, 2009) - Arbor Networks®, a leading provider of secure service control solutions for global business networks, today announced that Neo Telecoms, one of the premier infrastructure and IP transit operators in Europe, has selected Arbor Networks Peakflow SP platform ("Peakflow SP") to deliver network-wide visibility and security against distributed denial of service attacks, together with comprehensive peering and transit analysis that will enable them to reduce peering costs, improve traffic engineering and perform network troubleshooting.

The de facto standard and security platform of choice for a majority of the world's leading service providers, Peakflow SP leverages IP flow data to deliver a unique combination of pervasive visibility into network, application and routing traffic with real-time detection, mitigation and comprehensive reporting of network anomalies, all from one fully integrated platform. This enables Neo Telecoms to manage the impact of security threats as well as network issues.

"Pervasive visibility into network, application and routing traffic allows Neo Telecoms to make more informed decisions about security incidents, transit partners, network architecture, customers and new IP services," said Raphael Maunier, Neo Telecoms chief technology officer. "The Peakflow SP platform is purpose built for sophisticated IP-based networks like Neo Telecoms."

"Neo Telecoms is enabling the Internet Economy across Europe, delivering a full suite of innovative IP-based services to regional ISPs, international operators, SMB's and international enterprises," said Patrick Sonou, Arbor Networks country manager for France. "Peakflow SP delivers the security, visibility and control over the network that Neo Telecoms's requires to maintain its leadership position."

Arbor Peakflow SP also dramatically improves traffic engineering and capacity planning by correlating real-time topology information with traffic data. Peakflow SP allows Neo Telecoms to optimize their network and reduce costs by providing detailed visibility into the traffic that is leaving or entering their networks via peering or transit links. Peakflow SP provides insight into critical information such as BGP routing, MPLS VPNs, QoS and applications such as DNS, VoIP and P2P -- enabling Neo Telecoms to automatically recognize hot spots and engineer the network for lower costs, higher performance and new services. Key benefits to Neo Telecoms include:

--  On-Demand Packet Analysis - Deeper visibility into the network and
    traffic for troubleshooting, fault prevention, performance monitoring and
    security forensics.
--  Global Geography Reports - Analyze peering traffic by geography,
    market, most used services and threat activity.
--  Expanded Transit Peering Reports - Gain a better understanding as to
    where their customer traffic is destined beyond initial peers.
