DUBAI, United Arab Emirates., December 4, 2013 - (PressReleasePoint) - Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced that its recently launched advanced threat portal combines Arbor’s unique threat intelligence and analysis with industry-wide news and social media content.
The ATLAS Threat Portal features information from the ATLAS ® Active Threat Level Analysis System, a unique collaboration between Arbor and more than 275 service provider customers globally. These customers share anonymous traffic data from their product deployments with Arbor, totaling 70 Tbps of peak traffic, in order to generate a globally scoped view into the threat landscape. This massive data set gives Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT) a unique position to study malware, botnets and DDoS attacks that threaten network infrastructure and services. The popular ASERT blog has been updated and incorporated into the portal to provide technical, in-depth analysis of Internet traffic trends, DDoS attacks, new malware families and other advanced threats.
The ATLAS Threat Portal also features a unique collaboration between Arbor and Google Ideas called the Digital Attack Map. Google Ideas used anonymous data from Arbor Networks’ ATLAS® to build a data visualization that allows users to explore historical trends in DDoS attacks, and make the connection to related news events on any given day. The data is updated daily, and historical data can be viewed for all countries.
“Arbor was funded out of a groundbreaking research project at the University of Michigan. Research has always been at the heart of what we do. This portal allows us to share global threat information with the community at-large, to feature our team of expert analysts, highlight their research and integrate the latest news and social activity that is going on across the industry. The dashboard has a great mix of data, analysis, news and social commentary that is constantly updated and relevant to what is going on in our industry,” said Dan Holden, Arbor Networks Director of Security Research.
