Arbor Networks Updates Industry-Leading Peakflow SP Platform

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced the availability of version 5.8 of Peakflow SP, the leading network-wide infrastructure security and traffic-monitoring platform for service, hosting and cloud providers.

The vast majority of the world's leading service providers rely on Arbor's Peakflow SP platform to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services. The Peakflow SP platform includes two main components: Peakflow SP and the Peakflow SP Threat Management System (TMS). Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with TMS's carrier-class threat management, which automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic, while maintaining business traffic. With the ability to mitigate only the attack traffic, customer-facing services remain available while providers actively mitigate attacks.

"For more than 12 years, Peakflow SP has been deployed in the most demanding network environments in the world. The robust platform has evolved significantly over the years. Today, Peakflow SP addresses security issues like DDoS, operational issues such as service quality and network performance and even serves as a platform for revenue generation as a feature of managed security services, which are increasingly in demand by enterprises looking for an added layer of security protection," said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty.

New Features in Peakflow SP 5.8

New Application Processor Module (APM) Card for the TMS 4000: To boost mitigation capacity, counter growing attack volumes and help provide investment protection, the Peakflow SP solution now includes a new APM-E card. The APM-E is the packet processing blade on the TMS that examines and selectively blocks attack traffic. The APM-E replaces the APM-10, delivering large gains in packet processing throughput with no increase in price. A single TMS-4000 chassis can be populated with up to four APE-10 or APM-E modules, enabling a total of 40 Gbps of mitigation capacity.
