Security solutions leader, Arbor Networks, allows customers to test-drive the powerful new Pravail Security Analytics solution with a free trial

Dubai, United Arab Emirates., April 2, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today introduced Pravail Security Analytics for advanced threat detection, incident response and security forensics. The technology delivering this solution was developed by Packetloop, a Sydney, Australia-based innovator in the field of Big Data Security Analytics that was acquired by Arbor in September 2013.


Arbor is able to offer enterprise security teams the richest set of data regarding the activities happening on their network. Pravail Security Analytics is a powerful solution that will allow our customers to see attacks on their global networks faster and in more detail than seen before. We’re focused on bringing meaningful context to massive amounts of data so that security teams can focus on the critical few, react faster and identify the threats lurking within their network environment before they impact the business,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.


Global Attack Intelligence for Local Protection

The attack intelligence that keeps Pravail Security Analytics at the cutting edge of network security comes from Arbor’s ATLAS® Active Threat Level Analysis System. ATLAS is a collaboration with nearly 300 service providers who share anonymous data with Arbor, up to 70TB/sec of global Internet traffic. This collective view delivers globally scoped insight into the attack landscape. This data set is analyzed by Arbor’s security research team who then develops detection methodologies; and creates fingerprints that identify threats and malicious activity occurring within the enterprise.


Reveal Attacks Hidden within Your Global Network

Today’s breed of attacker is not looking to be a short-term and visible nuisance. They use stealthy and sophisticated methods to penetrate an organization’s perimeter and the indicators of compromise are often impossible to identify before it’s too late. In order to really understand subtle, advanced targeted attacks, enterprises need a complete record of all network traffic. By analyzing data very quickly, Pravail Security Analytics can be used for real-time attack response decisions, and by storing the data for future reviews, it can be looped to identify previously undetected attacks using the latest threat intelligence.


Organizations are looking for solutions that help them deal with the problem of advanced threats hidden within their networks," said John Grady, research manager for Security Products at IDC. "Arbor’s Pravail Security Analytics is a powerful platform for the security analyst, processing huge amounts of data and providing actionable intelligence through intuitive visualizations that reveal threats in both real-time and historical data sets. Arbor now has a unique combination of NetFlow, packet capture and global threat intelligence from their ATLAS infrastructure to address today's dynamic threats that evade signature-based solutions.”


Rapid Deployment, On-Premise or In the Cloud

Pravail Security Analytics uses big data technologies that lower the barrier to entry for organizations looking to deploy and operate world-class security analytics. An organization can securely upload packet captures to Pravail Security Analytics in the Cloud and be analyzing their data within minutes of a threat being identified. For organizations that cannot upload their packet captures for compliance or regulatory reasons, Pravail Security Analytics can also be deployed as an on-premise solution using distributed Collector appliances. The Collector appliances can be used to scale out storage or processing capabilities for high speed capture points, or for deployment into multiple locations to provide distributed coverage.


  • Cloud only - Upload captures to Pravail Security Analytics in the Cloud for storage, processing and analysis.

  • On-Premise - All captures, storage, processing and analysis is contained within the Pravail Security Analytics Collector.

  • Cloud/On Premise - A hybrid model where Pravail Security Analytics Collectors are deployed in an organization’s network for capture, storage and processing, and the analytics data is sent to Pravail Security Analytics in the Cloud for analysis and visualization.


A production demonstration of the Cloud solution is available that leverages pre-existing data sets. This enables the user to test drive the solution and see its powerful capabilities firsthand.

A free trial of the Cloud solution is also available, enabling users to quickly analyze their own network packet captures for threats, anomalies and misuse. The free trial allows users to upload up to 1GB of their data for thirty days.


General availability of the Pravail Security Analytics on-premise Collector solution is planned for April 30, 2014.
