Unbeatable Security and DDoS Protection
Deployed in a majority of TierI ISPs around the world, Arbor Peakflow is the de facto standard for network security and analysis. Arbor’s Peakflow platform has been deployed to support ScaleMatrix critical IP services. Positioned adjacent to our network backbone and our peering/transit edge, the Arbor platform is able to detect, analyze and mitigate a broad range of network threats using IP flow and application data. In addition, Peakflow products provide unmatched visibility and extensive reporting capabilities, helping ScaleMatrix network engineering teams make informed decisions when addressing network security concerns.
Comprehensive Threat Management & DDoS Protection
Large-scale DDoS attacks affect not only the intended victim, but also other unfortunate clients who use the same shared network service. To reduce the collateral damage, unprotected service providers often shut down all traffic destined for the victim’s site—thus completing the DDoS attack. Armed with application-layer threat detection capabilities and up-to-date network behavioral patterns of known and emerging threats, the Peakflow SP Threat Management System (TMS) allows ScaleMatrix engineers the ability to detect and surgically remove only the attack traffic while maintaining legitimate business traffic. The Peakflow SP solution is the most proven and effective protection from DDoS attacks, including comprehensive protection for dual stack IPv4/IPv6 infrastructure.
Application-Layer Intelligence and Protection
Arbor Peakflow SP, which utilizes flow for pervasive network visibility, provides the application-layer intelligence to secure and manage critical business applications such as voice, video, data, messaging, file sharing, ScaleMatrix engineers are able to profile application network behavior, and detect and report on application traffic violations—thereby reducing downtime and accelerating problem resolution. Combined with the Peakflow SP TMS appliance, Peakflow SP also offers application-layer performance monitoring, attack detection and surgical mitigation for protecting and optimizing the availability of critical IP services such as DNS, HTTP or VoIP. Only Peakflow SP combines pervasive, cost-effective visibility with deep application insight and analysis of critical network traffic, services and applications.
Intelligent Traffic Engineering
Peakflow SP models traffic from across the entire network, enabling network engineers and management to make informed business decisions about routing, transit, partners, customers and quality of service. It dramatically improves traffic engineering and capacity planning by correlating topology information with real-time and historic traffic data, including traffic on IP-based MPLS VPNs. With detailed insight into the traffic that enters and leaves the network and customer-by-customer traffic matrices, you can engineer your network for lower cost and higher performance—eliminating hot spots before they adversely impact services. Peakflow SP also gives network operators insight and visibility into IPv6 traffic – both native and tunneled. IPv6 dashboards, reports and IPv6 attack detection/mitigation capabilities enable operators to efficiently plan and execute IPv6 implementations.
