Arbor Networks to Participate in the HP Threat Central Partner Network

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that Arbor will be participating in the HP Threat Central Partner Network, a collaboration of security vendors who believe in the importance of information sharing in order to combat the increasingly complex and global nature of today’s cyber attacks.

A common concern among IT and security teams is that they are struggling to secure and manage their complex infrastructures. They are looking to the security community for solutions that can deliver meaningful insight beyond the borders of their own network, streamline alerting, automate attack identification and improve response times.

HP Threat Central is a platform to share threat intelligence securely, confidentially and in real time. By crowdsourcing from a group of select, trusted partners, participants are able to share intelligence that addresses the critical challenges facing today’s enterprise network operators. HP Threat Central can help speed identification and mitigation of advanced attacks, disseminate detection indicators and mitigation techniques, and provide a global view of the threat landscape by combining and analyzing data from multiple sources.

“Arbor is a strong believer in sharing threat intelligence and it is something we have been doing for many years. As part of our ATLAS initiative, we share and consume threat feeds from numerous partners. This type of research-based collaboration gives customers a richer picture into the threat landscape and significantly improves their ability to identify and mitigate a wide range of threat activity,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.

ATLAS is a collaborative project with nearly 300 ISPs who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data totaling 70 Tbps. From this unique vantage point, Arbor is ideally positioned to deliver intelligence about DDoS, malware and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and network availability.

As a member of the HP Threat Central Partner Network, Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team(ASERT), will be sharing its unique insight into DDoS attacks and malware botnet families such as Citadel, Dirt Jumper, Zeus Gameover, Athena and hundreds of others. Arbor will also share actionable intelligence into botnet targets and command and control infrastructure.

“Adversaries are increasingly operating in underground marketplaces, sharing tactics and techniques to mount advanced attacks,” said Ted Ross, Director of Field Intelligence, HP Security Research. “As an industry, we must collaborate to share threat intelligence to combat these attacks, and we welcome partners like Arbor Networks into the HP Threat Central Partner Network as we build out this unified defense.”
