Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat
protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks,
announced today that Thailand’s CAT Telecom has joined Arbor’s Cloud
Signaling Coalition (CSC). Arbor’s powerful and unique Cloud
SignalingSM feature provides active, intelligent
communication between network perimeter and in-cloud based DDoS
protection systems. This integrated, multi-layered protection is
considered best practice when defending against today’s sophisticated
and explosive DDoS attacks.
“Defending against DDoS attacks can be a challenge for an ISP and its
enterprise customers. That’s why we chose Arbor Networks. Not only can
we deploy the market’s leading solution to protect our own
infrastructure, we can simultaneously solve a problem for our customers
by offering DDoS security services,” said Viroj Tocharoenvanith, SEVP of
Marketing and Sales for CAT Telecom.
“CAT Telecom recognizes DDoS for what it is, the primary threat to the
availability of websites, applications and online services. DDoS has
changed greatly over the years. What hasn’t changed is the need for
multi-layered protection, backed by great people and repeatable incident
response processes,” said Arbor Networks Jeff Buhl, Vice President of
Sales for Asia Pacific.
Cloud Signaling In Action
When an enterprise or data center operator discovers that they are under
a service-disrupting DDoS
attack, they can choose to mitigate the attack in the cloud through
the Cloud Signaling system, simply by clicking on a drop down menu and
triggering an alert to the service provider. The signal can also be set
at a predetermined capacity level for more automated protection. A
volumetric DDoS attack congesting the upstream links would immediately
diminish or disappear altogether from the data center’s access links,
and service availability would be protected.
Participation in the Cloud Signaling Coalition allows CAT Telecom to
provide differentiated managed security services, reduces the time to
mitigation and increases the effectiveness of the response against DDoS
threats. Enterprise and managed services customers benefit from
real-time monitoring of the attack mitigation, as well as granular post
mortem reports with details of the attack and the steps taken by the
service provider to mitigate the attack, helping to establish best
At the heart of Cloud Signaling functionality are Arbor Networks’
Peakflow® SP and Pravail® Availability Protection
System solutions. Peakflow SP powers many of the world’s leading
cloud-based DDoS managed security services, while the Pravail
Availability Protection System is an on-premise solution that protects
the network perimeter against threats to availability — specifically,
application-layer DDoS attacks.
World Leader in DDoS Mitigation
Arbor Networks’ customers include a majority of the world's service
providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today.
According to a June 2014 report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS
Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as top
supplier of DDoS prevention solutions overall as well as in the Carrier,
Enterprise and Mobile market segments.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.
