Arbor CloudSM for Enterprises
DDoS has become a primary threat to the availability of enterprise networks. DDoS was once a basic high-volume attack that flooded the pipes of its targets. The modern DDoS threat is a complex series of attacks that target not just connection bandwidth, but multiple devices that make up existing security infrastructure, such as firewall/IPS devices, as well as a wide variety of applications that the business relies on, like HTTP, HTTPS, VoIP, DNS and SMTP. These infrastructure and application-layer attacks are low volume and they are designed to evade traditional perimeter defenses, and often target them. Best practice defense recommends a combination of cloud-based protection against high-volume attacks, and on-premise protection against application-layer and infrastructure attacks.
With Arbor Cloud DDoS protection, enterprises can now deploy best-practices defense in a single solution, with integrated mitigation from on-premise to the cloud. Arbor Cloud helps protect enterprises against the full spectrum of DDoS attacks, including volumetric, application-layer, state-exhaustion (e.g. targeting firewall/IPS), blended and multi-vector DDoS attacks. The ease of use of the on-premise Pravail® Availability Protection System enables existing enterprise IT staff to maintain control of the mitigation, and gives them the ability to quickly alert the cloud when attacks reach a certain size that cannot be handled on-premise.
