"Arbor Networks invests heavily in research and product development, and is thus able to deliver, time and again, high-performance platforms and new form factors such as virtual appliances and Arbor Cloud managed services," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Chris Rodriguez. "In fact, the company offers the broadest portfolio of solutions for DDoS mitigation, including capabilities for the inline and real-time detection of sophisticated application layer attacks, massive volumetric attacks and encrypted threats."

The addition of fully managed Arbor Cloud services to the firm's suite of solutions has provided a valuable hybrid option for businesses. This holistic platform uses on-premise appliances to detect and mitigate all types of attacks, including "low-and-slow" attacks. Attack traffic is then rerouted to Arbor Cloud once it reaches a preset threshold, thus ensuring quick mitigation of the largest volumetric attacks.

Each of Arbor Networks' solutions is supported by the company's Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS). ATLAS collects and analyzes intelligence and metadata from service provider networks around the world to better comprehend DDoS attack trends, botnets, malware and targeted attack campaigns. More than 330 service providers contribute to the ATLAS research, granting insight into as much as 120 terabits per second (Tbps) of global Internet traffic.

Over and above technological advancements, Arbor Networks' updated pricing and licensing models improve deployment capacity and flexibility. The platform licensing, software licensing, and virtual machine licensing options lower capital expenses, enable faster installations and streamline upgrades.

Further, Arbor's solutions provide the scalability and reliability necessary for use in large operator networks and global enterprise environments. Hundreds of tier 1 cloud service providers, hosting providers, social media networks and financial institutions have turned to Arbor Networks for security systems. The organization has been entrusted to protect some of the largest Web properties, such as multiple Olympic Games and FIFA World Cups.

"Now, Arbor Networks is offering managed security services for its on-premises DDoS mitigation appliances," noted Rodriguez. "As a result, Arbor Networks has made its solutions accessible to a wider range of customers, including small and medium businesses."

This ability to anticipate future market requirements and therefore successfully develop relevant mitigation technologies while enhancing existing products has placed Arbor Networks firmly in the driver's seat in the global DDoS mitigation market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation. The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products, technologies and leadership, with a focus on customer value and market penetration.
