Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT, today announced it was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its Q4 2017 Forrester Wave™ evaluation, Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Mitigation Solutions. In this evaluation, the Arbor Cloud DDoS Managed Service was cited as a Leader.
Market Drivers for DDoS Protection
According to the report, “digital businesses depend on constant, uninterrupted connectivity. Websites, applications and cloud services are potential targets for DDoS attacks. Attackers may target enterprises for extortion, hacktivism, political motivation, competitive reasons or as part of a data breach.”
“Hybrid solutions offer the best of both”
Arbor Networks has long been a proponent of hybrid DDoS defenses as industry best practice. According to Forrester, “many firms choose a hybrid approach using on-premises DDoS mitigation appliances with cloud-based services. A hybrid approach provides fast detection and defense with low latency and the ability to utilize cloud-based mitigation should the need arise. When attack volumes grow and threaten to overwhelm the on-premises solution, it can signal to the cloud provider to begin mitigation in the cloud.”
Arbor Cloud: Affordable, Fully Managed Hybrid DDoS Protection
Arbor Cloud offers enterprise customers affordable, fully managed DDoS protection powered by the industry’s leading technology and backed by its most experienced incident responders. Arbor Cloud can be deployed as cloud only, hybrid (where the customer manages the on-premise solution) or fully managed, with Arbor handling all aspects of a best practice multi-layered defense.
Arbor Networks® APS can be deployed as an appliance or virtual solution, delivering visibility into traffic entering the network, providing always-on DDoS attack detection and mitigation up to 40Gbps. Arbor vAPS can also be deployed in Amazon’s Web Services cloud offering unified DDoS protection for hybrid-cloud environments. Arbor’s patented Cloud Signaling capability tightly integrates this on-premise protection with cloud-based defenses, automating a key component of DDoS defense and significantly reducing the time needed to mitigate attacks. This hybrid, multi-layer defense is an industry best practice for DDoS protection services, ensuring that enterprise networks are protected no matter what type of advanced DDoS attack they are facing.
