Arbor Networks’ Pravail® Network Security Intelligence Solution Wins Gold Award For Best Network Security and Management Product at Info Security Guide Awards

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that Pravail Network Security Intelligence won Gold in the Best Network Security and Management product category at the 10th annual Info Security Products Guide awards, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide. Additionally, Arbor received three Bronze Awards for Best Security Company, Best New Product for Arbor Cloud and Best Security Hardware for Pravail Availability Protection System.

“It is very gratifying to see our company, as well as our Pravail advanced threat and Arbor Cloud multi-layered DDoS protection solutions, recognized at the Info Security Products Guide awards,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan. “We have a great team at Arbor that is truly dedicated to solving the most critical security challenges facing our customers.”

Gold Award: Best Network Security and Management Product
Pravail® Network Security Intelligence (NSI) acts as the central nervous system for security deployments. It sits inside the network and collects information on network traffic patterns and security events that are occurring throughout the network, alerting security teams to those events that indicate an attack or breach is in progress. Pravail Network Security Intelligence helps customers protect intellectual property and data from theft or loss caused by advanced malware threats, internal network misuse or abuse, or via infected mobile devices connected to the network.

Bronze Award: Best Security Company
What separates Arbor Networks from other security vendors is how the company leverages its service provider footprint to benefit all customers. Arbor’s Active Threat Level Analysis System, or ATLAS®, is a collaborative project with nearly 300 service provider customers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data totaling 80 terabytes-per-second (Tbps). ATLAS is the world’s largest globally-scoped threat analysis system. From this unique vantage point, Arbor is ideally positioned to deliver intelligence about DDoS, malware and botnets that threaten Internet infrastructure and network availability. Arbor customers enjoy a considerable competitive advantage through a unique combination of a micro view of their own network traffic combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic. This is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.

Bronze Award: Best New Product for Arbor Cloud
With Arbor Cloud, enterprises can now deploy best-practices defense in a single solution, with integrated multi-layered protection from the premise to the cloud. Arbor Cloud helps protect enterprises against a wide 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 (Pravail APS) 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.

Bronze Award: Best Security Hardware for Pravail Availability Protection System
Arbor's Pravail Availability Protection System helps secure the enterprise perimeter from threats to the availability of a business's applications and services -- in essence, its livelihood. Specifically, the Pravail Availability Protection System helps protect enterprises against application-layer DDoS attacks, and was built to stop attacks promptly without upfront configuration or any user interaction. It delivers DDoS attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed, even during an attack.
