BURLINGTON, MA: Arbor Networks, a provider of network security solutions, announces the introduction of a new security platform for advanced threat protection- Arbor Networks Spectrum which allows attacks and threats from across the internet to be detected, investigated and proved utilizing its internal enterprise networks- Arbor’s Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS) which includes 300 of Arbor’s service provider customers.
Arbor Networks Spectrum is designed for security teams to search the entire network to uncover, investigate and prove complicated and sophisticated attack campaigns across the globe by using its internal enterprise networks to view internal conversations and lateral movement of attackers on customer networks.
ATLAS is a platform which integrates more than 300 of Arbor’s service provider customers, sharing their traffic and threat data. This allows around one third of the activity of the internet to be monitored by Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT).
ASERT utilize a combination of ATLAS information, in-depth malware research and data from real-time botnet activity monitoring to understand current threats. ASERT are alerted when there is an attack and are able to view what data the attackers are receiving. Using this information Arbor provides defenders the speed to surface, search, detect, investigate and prove threats irrespective of whom it is and where. This allows security teams to find and prove active attack campaigns 10 times more effectively than SIEM and Security Forensics.
“One of the greatest sources of enterprise risk today is not understanding that the attack environment has become personal. Sophisticated and persistent attackers design campaigns that evade traditional defenses, and then exploit an incident response process that is noisy, event driven, and managed by overwhelmed and understaffed teams. As a result, CISOs are often unable to make proper risk-based decisions and guide their teams to focus and find the true threats that represent the highest source of risk to their organizations, while they are in process.” says Arbor Networks President, Matthew Moynahan.
