MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyber threats continue to mutate and grow in volume. Elevating protection against cyber threats requires a wide aperture of data — a cross-carrier view is essential. Arbor Networks with its Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS) is posed to assist carriers, cloud providers, hosting companies, and network-dependent enterprises in improving their ability to protect themselves, their business operations, and their customers.

Frost & Sullivan's recently published white paper entitled, Defeating Cyber Threats Requires a Wider Net, provides an overview on how carriers can protect their network operations and customers' businesses from cyber threats as well as why business organizations should take note of ATLAS-participating carriers in making their carrier selections.

Malicious and unwanted traffic clog carriers and enterprises' electronic arteries and adds risk to maintaining stable operations, reaching profitability objectives, managing a business's brand reputation, complying with compliance regulations, and safeguarding sensitive data. As threat actors operate worldwide, a single source of data to conduct threat analysis is incomplete. Carriers and network-dependent enterprises must increase the level and integrity of network traffic for analysis, while also leveraging trained personnel in threat analysis and mitigation.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks is a growing threat for carriers and their enterprise customers.  In this Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan white paper, Arbor Networks is identified as a provider of innovative security solutions derived from years of practical experience in traffic collection, threat analysis, and prevention. The company's ATLAS Intelligence Feed service systematically delivers policy updates that stop DDoS attacks before carrier customers' online businesses are impacted. Additionally, Arbor's Active Threat Feed provides activity-based fingerprints that block network intrusions, malware, botnets, and other advanced threats before traditional signatures can be prepared, distributed, and deployed.

"For security professionals, useful threat intelligence is paramount. The value of intelligences lies in its range, integrity and timeliness," said Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan Vice President of Research Michael Suby.  "This is one of the benefits of ATLAS — a community-supported, vetted, real-time, and actionable source of threat intelligence."
