Arbor Networks, a company best known for its DDoS protection solutions, today announced scalability and performance improvements along with new “Flex Licensing” options for its Peakflow SP network intelligence and infrastructure availability solution.

Arbor’s Peakflow SP platform is used by service providers and enterprises to protect against threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer DDoS attacks.

Arbor Networks LogoThe platform is comprised of two main components, Peakflow SP and the Threat Management System (TMS). Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with TMS’s threat management that automatically detects and removes attack traffic while maintaining other legitimate traffic.

New features and benefits of Peakflow SP 6.0 include:

Flexible Licensing and Virtual Deployments

• Independent platform and software licenses, support for virtual machines.

• Lower capex cost, less expensive purchase and expansions, less minimal hardware required.

• Faster deployments and upgrades and lower total cost of ownership.

Scalability & Performance Improvements

• 5X increase in the number of routers supported per Arbor flow collector and per Peakflow SP deployment, enabling customers to expand to customer edges of their network.

• 3X increase in NetFlow collection (Flows Per Second), enabling greater visibility and threat detection.

• 2X increase in number of managed objects, enabling customers to manage more customers per deployment.

• 5X increase in number of users, increases reach of managed DDoS Protection services. Attack Mitigation Improvements

• A new TMS 2300 which is software upgradeable from 1Gbps to 10Gbps of mitigation capacity.

• New attack counter measures and enhanced Cloud Signaling functionality “cloud signaling.”

• Up to 4 TB of total mitigation capacity per deployment.

“With the Peakflow SP 6.0 release, we’re giving customers the performance, scalability and the flexibility they require to secure distributed and complex network environments. For example, for the first time, customers have the option to deploy the Peakflow SP solution on Arbor hardware, virtual machines or both,” said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. “Flex Licensing will allow our customers to cost effectively deploy the Peakflow SP solution pervasively across their network — from the peering/transit edge, to the core backbone, to the customer edge — vastly improving their traffic visibility and advanced threat protection.” 

In September, Arbor Networks acquired Packetloop, a Sydney, Australia-based startup focused on security analytics.
