Arbor Networks

NETSCOUT Arbor is driven to protect the infrastructure and ecosystem of the internet. It is the principle upon which we were founded in 2000; and remains the common thread that runs through all that we do today. Our approach is rooted in the study of network traffic. Our suite of visibility, DDoS protection and advanced threat solutions provide customers with a micro view of their network enhanced by a macro view of global internet traffic and emerging threats through our ATLAS infrastructure. ATLAS delivers intelligence based on insight into approximately 1/3 of global internet traffic. Supported by our Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT), smart workflows and rich user context, NETSCOUT Arbor’s network insights help customers see, understand and solve the most complex and consequential security challenges facing their organizations.

-> Recent changes in the characteristics of DDoS attacks
-> Understand the newest threats to enterprise networks
-> The challenge of IoT devices used in DDoS attacks
-> Learn how to defend your network from these attacks.
